Default which class? Sc or buggy

I have a friend that is considering getting back into the hobby. He has a bunch of experience but has been out of it for 10 years. Around here SC and SC 4x4 are the most popular with 1/10 buggy pretty big also.

Question is what would you suggest and why? Anyone run both? I gave him my thoughts....just trying to get more! Thanks

I Am also recently returned after a long absense and i chose buggy to start but part of that decision is that both scte and sc10 4wd are not easy to get since the scte is back ordered and the sc10 4 wd is just being released and if you havent preordered you will be waiting a while. I ended up going buggy crazy and got a 22, a b44.1, and a HB VE8

I will eventually go sc 4wd but i am just doing buggies for now

+1 on previous posts. The buggy will be initially more challenging and develope better driving skills over time, but he should be able to pick things up quickly from the past.

Personally, I like the idea of closed wheel racing. Less chance of breaking stuff when you go to pass someone a little too closely.

Also, as much as the Losi and AE trucks are the newest/coolest, there is much better parts support for some of the (slightly) older trucks, and a Slash 4x4 can be very competitive, especially if your track has a Slash Spec class.

In the hands of MOST drivers, I don't think you will see a huge difference between the Losi, AE, Durango, Slash, OFNA, or Kyosho... It depends more on setup and skill... Some may be easier to wrench on than others, but once you get to know your own truck, it will be fine.
