Does anyone even make an electric truggy? I know that some people are converting 1/8 scale truggy's over to electric from nitro.

There really aren't any production electric truggies out right now. I think finedesignsrc does a converted Hot bodies lightning truggy you can purchase however, but as far as direct from the manufacturer like AE making one, or whatever, I haven't seen one.

You could be adventurous and make your own electric truggy.

Yes, it was a prototype that we were playing around with. Never got to the CNC Chassis stage.

hey man,
just get a good nitro truggy, there are plenty out there, no battery war worries,

I am building up a Mugen MXB5T, will be istalling a 21 Nova Rossi,
28 is overkill for Truggy, and there is a track very close by. for on road I have to drive for 1 hr. the off road guys are very helpful and the pit atmosphere is laid back.
