the cheapest best truggy is the Hot Bodies D8T. same with the buggy. but if u spend more money u can get better depending on your driving style.

1/8 buggys are more nimble and lighter and handle bumps not bad a bit, cheaper on parts etc than truggy and buggys have lower center of gravity.

i only driven a eight-t truggy once and its a lot easier to drive and faster.
and u can drive it a lot harder. than a buggy,and its funner the parts are a bit, more expesive and the tires. are more money but i heard they last longer than 1/8 buggy tires.

Yes its great buy one, best thing you need to do is to pick one and research that one, I think your questioning to many and it will confuse you on one to pick.

I got a truggy near the end of the season having never driven a truggy, only buggy.

I will say that it is WAY easier to put the truggy where you want it lap after lap. They're so much more consistent, so much easier to drive. I would definitely say that they can be faster than buggy. They're not much heavier now, they have a bigger contact patch for better traction, wider stance for stability. Definitely fun to drive. I am excited to run buggy and truggy next summer.

I can't speak for the Caster. All I can say is that it looks like the older style of truggy. I would go with the newer designs, the Losi 8T 2.0 or the Mugen Seiki MBX6T.
