Default E Buggy or e truggy

Hey guys I'm trying to decide if I should get an e buggy or e truggy. I never race but I have a track in my back yard and some of my friends have tracks to drive on to. But I race motocross so I will be driving them on a motocross track to. Let me know what u think.

Well I would say e-truggy. The longer wheel base and bigger tires will make it easier in the mx track ruts

Is this forkner?

I like to drive my truggy a little better than my buggy. But I drive my buggy more because 1) my buddies have only buggies 2) tighter tracks/areas favor the buggy better.

They're really close on fun comparison though.

Ya all of my friends have buggies so I might just get a buggy because most of the Rc tracks that we drive on are pretty tight and a buggy would be fine to drive on a mx track to and yes jonasm48

That's cool. Also, I believe you're from somewhere in missouri so if you're close to KC you should check out Fastlane Raceway sometime if you haven't already. They have really good indoor (no 1/8 scale though) and outdoor tracks.

Good luck at ME cup btw bud.

Well from exprience with having a E-Truggy really make sure there is a class of them not to mention a constant class before you convert or buy a pacific electric Truggy kit or roller. Inless you dont care about running with Nitro Truggys and needing to use a big lipo or a lower KV on a 5s or 6s which is not cheap .


My opinion is go with something that has its own class and very constant which is a E-Buggy and it will teach you do drive better . Dont get me wrong a E-Truggy is fun to drive and race.

But yea on a Motorcross track a E-Truggy will handle it better for sure than a electric Buggy.
