I like you came back from a near 20 year break....

I'm one of those AE fans too... *Puts up shield and prepares for the Loosey grenades :P

Truggy: As stated easier to drive, more stable, great for relaxing. Does take practice to drive it fast. Tires, AKA Cityblocks Soft, last forever, Grid Iron/ Holeshots or any of the other pin types in soft, gone after one long main. As for parts, any of the "Truggy" specific parts, suspension, long dogbones, centers and tires are more expensive, but usually within $1-$5 of the buggy conterparts

Buggy: Less stable, faster acceleration and more agile, takes more concentration to drive as you are constanly making corrections for every bump in the track. Tires are cheaper, and you have alot more choices as most of the tire companies release the buggy versions first.

As stated earlier, go with what you local hobby store has and look at the classes at your track to see what is popular and what looks fun for you.

If you plan on getting both, a good thing to do is make sure they are from the same company so some parts are compatible and you don't have to stock up on twice the number of parts. I know on the RC8B and T, almost all the center sections are identical. Only things that are different is anything that is "longer" between the two (Suspension, Dogbones, Front Shocks, Braces, Chassis, Turnbuckles, Gearing (clutch/ spur) etc)

I think you should choose buggy, 'cause buggy's so funny and make you exciting.

I am a recent convert from 10th electric and I bought a buggy and a truggy
buggy is harder to drive faster, but is more fun to mE

truggy is fun too, but it's just... Blah. Very forgiving
Why is this hobby so full of drama? Its toy cars....
