+1. Ive really picked things up fast with these rc cars. the jumps are my favorite part.

truggy is usually the faster class, meaning faster lap times. but in my area the truggy seen isnt quit as big. there usually is only like 4-6 in the C main but in buggy there is a almost full D or E main, i have been to a few races where they have an F main in buggy . buggy is more intense and all, but i like truggy but driving a buggy helps me a TON with my truggy.

i cant answer that question for you. but buggy is cheaper to get started with. tires are cheaper and you can get cheaper servos and cheaper engines. but truggy seem to last longer on everything but A-arms, the A-arms on truggy tend to start boing after a while. i started with a buggy and i think thats what helped me so much with the transition to truggy. however, my dad started with truggy and is currently running buggy and he had a hard time making the switch from truggy to buggy.

In my experience, the Buggy class is faster. Buggies are usually around 2 pounds lighter than Truggies and generally Buggies and Truggies run the same engine size ( .21 ) on our track. Truggies are longer, wider, and heavier than Buggies and quite a bit easier to drive.

get a buggy. They are harder to drive, in the end they will make you a better driver. Truggys arent as edgy they are easier to drive but imo a buggy class is funner and you will like it more.

They arent to bad of an engine actually. You should be able to pit at like 8 minutes. Neighbors had them in the savages and good suprisingly decent run times.
