Default here is my truggy

I just finished rebuilding this truggy.... all new arms, some new bearings, new oil, new esc toro 150, and tekin T8 truggy 2000kv motor, and a set of new mbx6 shocks. I have a new lid just need to get it painted. took it out for a test at the track last week need to do some more setup in the steering but all else seems fine.

absolutely, I ran one for over 2 years and for some reason I felt it was stronger than the buggy

Got the truggy. This is a quick run after a once over in a parking lot. It's so dialed that it's almost boring. Amazing truggy. I'm blown away...

I wondered the same thing. JConcepts and Proline seem to be phasing truggy tires and wheels out. It's getting harder to find truggy vids on YT. I still love my Losi8e/ 2.0 and would pit it against any buggy or MT, but does make me wonder. I guess I'll be stocking up on spare parts.

Thanks for the reply, I for sure know Nitro truggy is still going strong but seems like hard to find e-truggy races..

I've seen several of these around and they seem fairly quick, how durable are they?
