Ok, here we go.
It seems you are refering to nitro cars so I'll break it down like this.
A 1/8th scale buggy is 4wd. Has big narrower tires so it can turn tight at low speeds better.

A truggy is a slightly longer and wider form of a buggy with bigger tires on it. It is more stable in rough stough but it doesn't have as tight a turning radius.

A 1/10 scale stadium truck is 2wd and powered by a much smaller engine. These trucks are much more nimble but they require more precision because you can spin out and ect.

I hope losi, associated, kyosho, or whoever, starts making 1/10 scale 4wd electric truggy kit. I think that would be awesome. I would buy one in a hearbeat! . Than I would throw a brushless system and lipo pack in there and go out and spank my friends 1/8 truggy in his own backyard track !

So truggy's are buggy's that someone put truck wheels on the front? Are truck and buggy front spindles different? I know comparing the Losi's, the spindle is live on the buggy. Are the bearings in the wheel on all 2wd truck front ends?

Truggys are more than just bigger tires on a buggy. Generally they are wider, longer, and heavier than buggies. Also they are 4wd, so if you take an xxx-4, widen the front and rear end. Make the chassis a little longer for a longer wheelbase. Re-gear to compensate for the bigger tires, and you would have a truggy. You would also need a different suspension setup. The parts have to be stronger because of the additional weight. I read somewhere it takes hundreds of thousands of dollars to engineer a truggy 1/8 scale truggy, not sure what the cost would be on a 1/10.
