1/8 scale buggies and truggies is where it is at right now.. Only one other thing is even close to as big, and that is Short courset trucks, and they are BLOWING UP!!!!

I use to run a gt back in the day. Buggies are way more intense. I switched to a ofna 9.5/mbx in 01 I think it was, and never looked back. Now I rock a Losi 8b and may be getting a truggy soon!

Truggy is a blast, you can push them a lot more then buggies! If your good with a buggy, imagine how good you could be with a truggy! Get it... Get it.... Get it.... Get it....
