MT racing is alive and well, but the Muggy? Nah. Hence Losi discontinuing it.

Sucks, too, because the pig is hilarious fun with electric conversion.

If its just monster truck racing then what are some setups they are using out there or is it just random? I guess what I am trying to figure out is the rules and stuff. I know about the buggy scene was just wonderin was there a class for MT guys out there.

I had a Muggy and it was a really great RC.. Tough, fast, lot of fun... Really liked it..

But - and just throwing this out there - there is no way IMO it should be classifiedd as an MT. It's a truggy with big shocks, and that's it.. So for racing it's kind of an oddball.. Not fair against Savages and LST2's and co afaic(because it's a truggy), but too big and heavy and outdated against the newest racing truggies..

Awesome basher though..

I keep up with the truggies just fine. I don't win any, but I have fun and can stay on the lead lap. When I raced my LST2 I got stuck with the truggies as well, and managed to beat a couple of truggies. Now with the Muggy it's even better.

Thanks bud! Yep my club is Tallahasse RC. They have an awesome group of guys there and the track is very fun for 1/8 Truggy.

Next race is tomorrow:

Registration on RC Signup. Sometimes they get enough people out there to run a MT class as well. But, MT class has been dying out as of late.

My next car will be a buggy. I've always wanted one, but never had the money to own two cars at once. Someday I'll get one. I almost got a buggy instead of this Muggy but what I like about the Muggy is that you can bash it too. When I'm not running on the track I can just go down a tooth on the pinion and put some MT tires on and it bashes like a beast. Tough as nails. I have to say that I like it more than my LST2.
