If you're new I'd go buggy before truggy. It'll be cheaper and there's a better chance if there's a track nearby that there's a buggy class. Truggy can be a little hit and miss.

Buggy all day .... While I love my trucks , they are like clown cars compared to the agility of a buggy.

Kyoshos . I have owned them all , most more than once . Always thought kyoshos were too expensive until I realized they never really get outdated , come with lots of stuff you pay good money to add to lesser cars , are very detail oriented , very durable , and very consistent. Parts actually seem to be everywhere . the buggy is very durable and doesn't need setup changes from track to track.

I mean as far as racing. Truggy isn't nearly as popular as buggy so it may be more difficult to find a track to race at.

I would say visit the track you plan to race at and gauge how large the classes are.

If both have a great turn out, for me personally, truggies were the most fun and easiest to drive. Thats not to say its like buggies are bad, or anything like that. I enjoy them a lot.

There is just something about a truggy...

See if you can drive both and see what you think.
