Buggy

Buggy-More agile, Harder to drive in a way, Takes more skill to be consistently fast, Better looking, more fun in my view

Trugs- more stable faster over bumpier tracks, easier to drive, boring- Joke

I prefer truggy for the same reasons that a lot like buggies- I don't have the reaction speed to drive a buggy well. Truggies are lazier and more forgiving to drive. They're also bigger so I can see what it is doing better. Buggies are fun if you can handle them, but they are harder to drive.

Buggy weekly, Truggy whenever there is a BIG crowd and there is plenty of time to maintain two vehicles!

Been racing both since 2005 and I would not pick one over the other. Some days I'm faster with the buggy, other days with the truggy. In some qualifiers I'm faster with my MBX6T than my MBX6 or vice versa! Love em both!

Both, but if I had to pick just one of the two it would be truggy. For several reasons. Truggies take less effort to drive competitively(in other words they are easier to drive). They handle rough tracks better, and to me it's just more fun being able to throw the truck around and not get out of shape. On the same note however the buggy will teach you more, and if you can master that truggies are easy in comparison. Buggies are the premier class of offroad, they are by far the most competitive class, which can be a positive or a negative depending on what you are looking for in a racing experience.
