Buggy will probably always be the premier class. They handle the fastest and the class has been around far longer. Truggies are popular because people believe they are easier to drive, really they are just harder to crash badly enough to require marshalling.

will not race them

your lucky u have that many at your track the most truggies we had last year was about 1 class of them i would say 6 of them or so but they woulnt show up regualy. i like truggys for how stable they are in jumping its something u have to used to , in the corners if u driven a buggy then a truggy , a truggy u have to keep your speed up and brake on point in corners or they to me feel like a dump truck. so i like buggy more they are lighter and jump easier and the tires are about 5 or so cheaper then truggy tires.

I drive and love both. My real passion used to be with truggies. Now I enjoy both of them equally.

Buggy will teach you more because they are harder to drive fast. They also get upset a lot easier than a truggy so they will teach you throttle control finess more than a truggy will.

Buggies however WILL always be the premier class. They have been around a lot longer and are still a more popular/competitive class than truggy.

Like jammin krazy said, buggys a drivers class. Its harder to be consistent and fast with a buggy than a truggy. Truggys dont get upset like buggys can. There is more setting up to do to a buggy than a truggy. I just find what I like with the truggy and throw it down. Pretty simple.

There both fun, buggy feels more rewarding if you do something good, cause you know you were the main part of it.

Our club in NZ is pretty small (we have about 7 guys running nitro), and all the guys running nitro has a buggy as well as a truggy. For me the buggy can be more difficult to drive throuh the rough stuff as it tends to get unsettled easier than the truggy, but it does accellerate out of corners a bit better. All things considered I really enjoy running both the trugy and the buggy.

I've always thought a buggy was easier to drive.because they go were you point them.
A Truggy is more foregiving.The tires act like a gyro and let you run over stuff to make up for mistakes
Just my 2 cents

That's not the case with today's truggies. They too go where you point them. But also soak everything up and have tons more traction than a buggy. Thay are also a lot more forgivng and stable.

That is why they are easier to drive, and won't teach you as much stuff as a buggy, like throttle control, etc...

Truggies are Buggies with training wheels.
