Default dilemma! losi buggy or truggy?

so for the past few months i been trying to decide if i should get another losi truggy or if i should get a buggy so i have both. heres where i keep having trouble deciding, i dont race much maybe 3 times a year and i mostly drive on my track where i dont have a marshall so i keep thinking a truggy mite be better and also having a spare truck around for parts would help a little bit but for the most part i have a good amount of spares on hand. then on the other hand i really like buggies and i no how good that losi is first hand after wheeling a friends so it makes this decision tuff, get another truggy and maybe make it my race truck with all lightweight parts and performance parts n keep the old one for practice or keep my truggy and get a buggy also so i have one of each. and the last thing that keeps pushing me toward a new buggy is i have a box of brand new aka tires that have 6 complete sets of city blocks and crossbraces 3 complete sets of each and then i also have a grip of brand new pro line tires from when i drove tamiya buggys. so in your opinion what the hell should i do stay with truggy or get the buggy?

I'd you are just bashing around without turn marshals the truggy is your best bet. If you want to become a better driver then the buggy is the best bet. I have driven a truggy for several years and then last august I started racing a buggy too. It took awhile to get the hang of it but it has helped me become a better driver overall. I still have a long way to go but I have seen the difference.

truggy man if your racing, its more funner if you ask me then buggy but than again it depends on what kind of track you run on .

truggy= good on rough, rutty tracks you can drive them harder without going all over the place. there are rough on parts and the tires do cost more but they last longer.

buggy= good on smooth, tracks they jump really good and there lighter
does take more driving skill to be fast. buggys are easier on parts and the tires are cheaper, but they dont last as long as truggy tires.


so if your on a rough track than get the eight- t 2.0 .

if your racing on a smooth track than get a eight-2.0 buggy.

get the buggy,it makes you a better driver so when you jump to a truggy you'll be able to drive it fast.
