We get it ! You drive 1/10 buggy ...your punk rock... P.S. try 1/10 on road or 12th on road sometime then your buggy will feel like a Cadillac

No doubt. I have some stick time in a 172 and some bona fide logged hours in a 152. Pulling a few G's in an Aerobat is something you just can't simulate.

I see real helis flying all the time (I live across the road from a trauma center), and it's on my list to get some stick time in one this summer. Then I'll figure out if I want to invest in the training. If not, I'll probably go back to fixed wing. Flying is amazing.

Until them, I'll just keep airing out my 1/10th scales.

I see no reason to lock this thread. This is a discussion forum, is it not?

My own opinion: I think truggies are ugly. Most of them ride around, nose-up-in-the-air, butt practically dragging in the dirt like a poodle with worms, it just looks wrong to me.

I *do* see the usefulness of the taller, wider fat-meat tires and wide stance, though. It makes the truggies a lot more user-friendly and forgiving than a buggy. I would imagine buggies need to be more individually fine-tuned to a particular track or surface than a truggy, but when they are, no truggy can compete with it.

It's all a personal preference. I like dis, you like dat. And we discuss and debate in forums.

Default first RC

When I was young my older brother had a gold pan rc10. I wanted the rc10 T when it came out but my brother said that "trucks were lame" still don't have one. But now I am kinda wanting a stadium truck to go with my short course.

Yeah anyway. I guess I like trucks after all.
