I guess you dont own either one. And by the way NITRO RULES.

This is the only useful info in this whole thread !

Truggy is too forgiving. They clip pipes and keep going. Around here truggys dont pass they go through the other trucks. For all of those reasons just dont have fun driving truggy.

The only reason I would run one again is to get more track time at the bigger races.

leave the truggy guys alone, if they want to be lame then let them be lame. i hate having to wait around all day at the races so the truggy guys can play with there toys. they should run a split day, buggy in the morning and truggy in the afternoon

Why I run truggy:

-They handle better on rough tracks which is common here
-Easier to find a good pit man since most people run buggy

Why I'd like to run buggy:

-Buggies are the "BUZZ"
-Less forgiving, more challenging
-Tires/Wheels are cheaper
-New tires always come out for buggy first

I think it would bring in more people knowing that u would get in and out quick, it works great in motorcross racing. For me the waiting around gets boring and that keeps me away from most races. I guess its hard to dedicate the whole day to rc when on the weekends I just want to relax from work and spend time with my family.

i think, that depends on how the program is run for instence my track that i go to during spring/summer starts their racing at 10:30 am. and ends at sometimes 3:00 pm or 4:30/5:00 grated that the track doesnt get watered so its dusty they just use a blower to get the loose crap off to the side.

this with, 7 to 8 heats with 2 sportsman truggy races and 1 buggy sportsman class and one pro class truggy and sc stock and monster truck.
