A Truggy would be more stable, but I would get a Buggy. Just something about being in the Buggy A sounds really cool! Around where I live there are more Buggys too.

Buggy.

You could get off a plane almost anywhere in the world and find a track to race a buggy at. If you pulled out your truggy, most of the rest of the world(except US, Canada, a few European countries and Japan, to name a few countries) would wonder wtf is wrong with that buggy.

TRUGGY!!!

I current race both classes and I like them both; but I really enjoy racing truggy. Racing buggy thought me a lot about smoothness, setup, and throttle control; and when I apply that to my truggy race, it makes me a lot faster. Truggies are bigger, easier to see, more fun to watch, and carry more speed at every area of the track. When I went to the track for the first time; I watched everyone in each class race. The one class that screamed at me, I got to do this, was the truggy class and I have been loving it since the day I first watched them race.

I had the same dilemma... I have a RC8B and RC8T and I like both. I'm better truggy racer but I prefer buggy because it is harder to drive, more technical and less forgiving. Also, buggies are "THE" class to race. In our area, buggy are slightly more popular then truggy.

I don't really care about which ones wear out the tires faster !

It's less about wear-rate, and more about price. Truggy tires are just too expensive new. I REALLY want a truggy at the moment(the new Serpent..), but tire price is holding me back. Good, I already have too many RC's, including an SC8 and RC8B - which can share tires. But I have qualms about getting a truggy which will need a different size tire which costs so much more.. 30 a pair is too steep IMO..

yea but look at it this way you spend that amount of money, on the truggy tires but they do last a lot longer than buggy tires so its not so bad really.

you can use worn truggy tires and still get a decent amount of grip cant say that about buggy tires.

Maybe it's the tracks over here, but I noticed little to no difference in wear between buggy and truggy.

TRUGGY all the way!

so much fun to drive, i do this to have fun and something thats difficult to setup and drive isnt for me. i like being able to throw down every week and be competitive without an extensive amount of effort. Dont get me wrong, i take very good care of my stuff, its always super clean and well maintained, and i do work on setup, but not as much as my brother has to with his buggy.

I don't know about sluggish-more forgiving and easier to drive/smoother maybe.

IMO Truggy is more fun, It's easier to push harder, and it's more of a challenge IMO to keep as tight of a line vs the buggy. The buggy is twitchier/less forgiving, but generally easier to make a tight line, just takes more concentration.

I know it sounds confusing, but do you get what i mean?

for bigger events i run both classes, for fun races I run just truggy
