Default Buggy or Truggy

Ok im asking here what would you get if you had a choice to get? I was looking into getting a truggy for bashing till i figure out where im moving to next but after watching so of the races I am starting to think maybe I want a buggy instead. What of the 2 would handle being a basher untill I move again and find places to race?

The Hot Bodies lightning series is a great series of bashers and racers and so does the jammin line of cars. In my opinion cen sucks but this is america and everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
How much money do you have to spend?

I would say compared to 1/10 scale offerings, both would make great bashers.

The truggy will have an edge just because of the bigger tires so it probably can get around more stuff.

But ultimately it goes back to what you will enjoy. I loved bashing with a XX-4 if that tells you anything. I also bashed with a 1/8 scale GS-SUT Truggy at one time too.

As for vehicles to choose from if you are looking, for the money currently the CEN Matrix line is pretty nice. I had a Matrix buggy, and it was a blast. the current owner really likes it as well and loves how durable it is. If I didn't pick up such a great deal on my 1/8 scale brushless MBX5, I probably would still have it.

Between a buggy or truggy, the truggy would be a better basher. you can even run it on taller grasses....
