"Better" means different things to different people. It depends on what a person wants. I believe this question has been posted before and it went nowhere.

I don't think there is a "better" one. However, I enjoy driving my truggy more. It is more forgiving, and I can push it harder. Plus I like it's bigger tires and size over the buggy, it handles the track better.

oh for sure truggy man and no its not a bias thing i had drove a buggy to for a season and sometimes i liked sometimes i dint.

truggy is just more forgiving and hell you can drive them harder and faster !
and if you make a mistake on a jump.

lets say landing it will not flip over or anything like that.

A few month ago there was a big thread or which is better, truggy vs buggy. There were a lot of interesting comments in that thread I'll see if I can find it.



Found it, just read this and it should answer all of your questions:


WHY WOULD ANYONE BUY A TRUGGY

I drive them all. Buggy, truggy, sct, nitro, electric. It seems 4 classes on race day is my max but you better have all your gear in tip top shape because there's little time for maintenance. I think I am going to max out at 3 classes 4 is just too much work. I think if inhad to choose I would go buggy. It's more challenging to drive and if you can hang onto a high power buggy then you can drive anything.
