Default Buggy popularity

I was looking at the new 2wd and 4wd electric buggies team losi has but I am worried about having enough of a class to make racing interesting and to be shure that there will enough people to race with every week. Please tell me about the popularity of buggies at your local tracks. thanks in advance.

It shouldn't matter how many buggies show up at our tracks...call your local track or show up on a few racedays and ask about buggy turnout. It varies from track to track. Here, we usually have a combined stock 2wd buggy/truck class, and no other electric during the summer, and during the winter, we have a little more nitro than during the summer, but then we have 2wd mod, 2wd stock, truck mod, truck stock, and sometimes 4wd mod...

Thumbs up

As far as buggies go, the 2wd seems much more popular everywhere. I race at severl tracks through the year and there never seems to be a 4wd class. The biggest class, however is always the truck class.

Buggy classes are growing here in Wisconsin. Trackside seems to have a intrest in 4wd with brushless motors. In Oshkosh, with two nights of racing at the new indoor dirt track, we had a heat of Stock Buggy and a full and fast heat of Mod Buggy. We are also trying to promote the 4wd Brushless class at Revolution Raceway in Oshkosh. (sorry for the gratuitous promotion)
