A well driven buggy will be faster, but the buggy is more twitchy.

Basically the truck would be easier to drive fast, but the buggy will be faster when driven well.....

buggies are a quicker when driven well but trucks are much more forgiving in the jumps

Parang kilala ko si ruftnik... hmmm... If you can drive a buggy, you can drive anything! Newbies shouldn't be scared. Buggies are easy to drive with the right set-up and tires. Trucks seem to be more forgiving in jumps and bumps with the larger tires, but if you want all out speed-- go with the buggy!
