Here's a question i've always had on my mind. Why aren't there many trucks in Europe? On grass, push is bad, and trucks turn more than buggies. So wouldn't truck be the way to go? this has always pondered my mind.

Seems to me like the real trucks are a US thing, not vey popular in Europe, so it transfers down that 10th scale trucks are also not that popular.
Also, 4wd buggies will turn inside a truck all day long.

thats another assumption there fella!
you have to CUT your front tyres down to calm the front end on grass.. i lent my tyres to someone on sunday and borrowed their old ones, got mine back part worn now which i can handle. far too much steering with new tyres.

Oy, I need to do some reading. Everyone I've talked to (all of 2 people ) have said that push is really bad on grass. When I said trucks turn the most, I was talking about 2wd. Once again I forgot that 4wd is pretty big over there, and hardly exists over here. Excuse me while I go read about European tracks.

In my opinion, a well set up 2wd buggy will turn inside a well set up 2wd truck.
Just that 4wd buggies have loads of front grip, on any surface.
