The blue springs are the hardest spring ofna makes for the big bore shocks.
It is possible to use X-RAY blue springs. They are slightly more firm.

Hay no problem with quesitons.

1 a truggy is normally a 1/8 buggy that has been converted to a truck, with bigger wheels and tires, and a truck body.

2. No, truggies have monster truck size rims and tires. but mostly use 1/8 buggies parts.

3. pretty much the same as a 1/8 buggy, with each kit, of conversion having differnt items.

4. i dont have a 1/8th buggy, so i cant answer this.

5. Truggies run in unlimited monster truck class. some places may have differnt classes for them.

6. a truggy in 10th scale is normaly called a stadium truck.

7. well, i know HPI, Jammin, kyosho, mugen(i think) and thunder tiger make truggy kits and RTR packages. for other truggies there are 1/8th buggy conversion kits.

The original truggies were 1/8 buggies with truck bodies and wide offset truck wheels and tires. The newer long arm/long wheelbase truggies (I like to call super truggies) are better known as Unlimited Monster Trucks or 1/8 Stadium Trucks. The Hot Bodies Lightning Stadium truck was the first true super truggy. Now you can add the TTR ST-1, Jammin X1-CRT, soon the Kyosho 777 ST1(not sure on that name), and the Kyosho RTR truck. Mugen will soon release a long arm version of their MBX-5 conversion and Xray is supposedly working on one too.

They are less responsive on the track than a 1/8 buggy but cruise through rough stuff a lot better. I would say they are easier to drive without crashing but you must be very precise to turn fast laps. They are not as durable as a 1/8 buggy, but they are making huge strides in this area.
