Buggy is the premiere class, so most new products found on buggy will not be made for truck. Ex. When was the newest Proline truggy tread design? Revolver in 2008. Since then they have a few tread patterns in buggy. Not to mention there is no truggy worlds.

The truggy class is getting smaller and smaller each race I go to, and some guys that used to race 2 classes have to cut back and they end up selling the truck.

Because truggy is to easy lol. Every guy i know races truggy only at series races and buggy at all club and series. No need to club both if you can drive a buggy you can wheel a truggy way better, thats why no truggies are around because they get to easy and loose competition because that one guy keeps winning everytime and thats the guy whos fast with a buggy.

i dont agree with the same guy wins everytime in truggy i see diffrent people at my track win in that class i almost won.

i mean yea truggys are easy to drive but at least you can drive them hard it all depends on how the track surface is. truggys at my track just handle the rough a lot better i drove a buggy last year.

i had the same laps as 1st place and 2 place i finished 3rd thats close !

I am curious with the JC wheel and the outside "cap"....wonder if dirt, debris, grass, etc...will get "stuck" or "wedged" in between the wheel and cap??
