Is that the best you can do? Don't get pissy because I described you to a T.

I'm not the fastest, but far from the slowest. I've got results to back it up to. I bet you're also the one on the drivers stand complaining about the person next to you wearing a ball cap too.

If you don't like racing with truggies and watching fat people eat cheeseburgers then quit.

Racing is supposed to fun and it is, no one hates anyone here because talking trash is part of the competitive spirit in all of us that makes racing great, this isnt BINGO and if it was i would still want to win!!!!
If that was all your point was then you could have left out the retarded "lame" comment. Then you went on to stereotype Truggy drivers being fat and sloppy. People sure talk big on the internet.

Harsh comments in here,

Can't was all jusy get a bong, I mean get along. LOL.

I understand that there many racers (I use that term loosely) that have a hard time justifying spending sun up to sun down at the track on race day. It's a personal choice. The same as running (or buying) a buggy or truggy or both. If someone is that person that can't justify staying all day at the track on race day, then the options are there for what to do about it. Run another class, makes the day go by quicker (sometimes too quick). Go out and Turn Marshall, tracks always need them. Help someone out in the pits, tracks always have new racers that could use the help. Last but not least, pack up and leave. I doubt that anyone would stop people from leaving, though some of your race friends will give you some crap for it. I'm sure there are many other options people can give. At the end of the day, it's still a personal choice on what to do.

truggy class give the old mt guys something to do
truggy tires help "break in" the track faster for the buggies
truggy class is easier to drive
truggy tires last longer
truggy class is faster than buggy
truggy class is less dependent on setup
usually you get to run with the fast guys and see their lines and try to keep up
truggy class keeps more people at the track and lhs, keeping us all racing more
truggy bodies have more room for decals
truggys don't break front shock towers
truggys are cool

Next time your at the track look at the guys that run both, and I think you'll be surprised that the truggy will typicaly turn the faster overall lap time..

Buggies accel quicker, and might corner quicker, but are no where near as forgiving..

Any die hard 8th scale guy will have a truggy and buggy... i like the way a buggy truns.. but i like the way a truggy makes it easy to land huge air.. and if the track is not 100% the truggy takes the little pot holes much better.
