Best advice I can give You is to tell You NOT to order from Renegade R/C, unless you don't mind waiting for over 3 weeks on your stuff! JT Racing makes the best kits available! It also depends on what type of vehicle You are using to make into a Truggy!

Forgive me, but what is a Truggy? I've seen these everywhere, but not really an explanation.

Basically - A Truggy is a cross between a monster truck and an 1/8th buggy.

Take the wheels and tires from a monster truck and the rolling chassis from an 1/8th rallycross car. Lower the gearing with a bigger main gear or put a .28 in it which will pull the higher gear.

Good quick fun for medium bumpy surfaces.
