It would not be nice to steal one and that is against the law.

Because they are fun and faster than a buggy on the track. Look at the most of the big nitro races, they are almost a lap faster.

LOL...truggies are powerful and can be really difficult to control around a race track, but once you figure it out, they are a lot of fun!!

I should not humour this post, but a truggy for me equals more track time to improve my buggy driving!

Both depends on the usage.

Truggies would be plural, as in, "We had 15 truggies at the race last night."

Truggy's is possesive, as in, "My truggy's A-arm broke 5 minutes in to a 20 minute "A" main."
