I prefer buggy, but i race truggy. Simply because i am a better truggy driver.

I will continue to develop my buggy skills as i can, but truggy just works better for me.

As for turnout, buggy by far.

its my first year driving a truggy, and i like them better than a buggy you can drive it harder. go over ruts better and, doesnt take a master driver to be good lol.

where i race at i would say buggy and, truggy has about the same, turnout but i would say a buggy jumps a bit more better and more level.

I enjoy driving the truggy a little more. It's more fun and a little less work. The buggy is a handful for me but I am learning. I have noticed that driving the buggy does make me a better truggy driver. If I had to choose I would choose truggy.

i don't have a truggy. Just want to get the main idea. I am getting pretty good at buggy.

wish i could afford a truggy. Unfortunatley the maintenance for my buggy swallows up any money i could save for a truggy.

Although maintenace cost are going down as i become a better driver

There is a huge influx on e cars at my local tracks and when deciding which one to build I went with an e truggy, there are less of them but the e buggys look like a handfull. We had a main yesterday where then put all the e buggys together, there were 19 e bugggys ont he track it was a demo derby for close to 4-5 laps until they spaced out a little bit. Man those e cars are creepy, they sit there and humm and dont move and then all of a sudden they take off. Its creepy but the instant power is insane.

thank god, I got tierd of that guy whipping me every weekend lol. I actually perfer truggy. My mbx6t is so easy to drive and just goes threw the rough with ease. But I do run buggy more. Its just a little easier on tires and the parts dont wear quite as fast. I think in my area they are both dead even

^^^^ i know right!! 1st time i saw an e-truggy on the track i thought it was gone stand on the rear wheels or just take flight off the track, lol.

i prefer Truggy, ex to work on & dial in. turn out is decent @ the tracks in my area but falls a lil short to the buggies.

there are alot of e buggies and truggies at my track too. It's just not that exciting to me. They make no noise and seem boring to me. I don't get everyone saying they are much faster either. THey don't seem that much faster to me.

How long until electric takes over?
