I would say reason is truggies are just easy to drive. There for not making much intrest. Just my opinion though.

I could be wrong, but I think that Truggy is only popular in the States; doesn't seem to have much of a following in Asia or Europe.

That just means faster speeds and less mistakes, what better to watch then high flying super fast trucks! I surely would!

Buggies have been made since the 80s. Truggies became popular a few years ago, and now they are started to fade away little by little like gas trucks. Look at race results at national races, truggy turnouts have gotten smaller. Also the economy doesn't help, and when given only 1 class to race, buggy is the premiere class.

Gage it may be easier to drive but its still racing never know who would walk away with it. but truggy is not as popular in other areas of the world like buggy.

Their pretty hugh with the Aussie's and the New Zealander's it seems. I wish they would have a truggy worlds just to get people back in to truggies. I like the way they look and the drifting driving style that comes along with their wider stance. I don't think their too easy to drive. Maybe easier but not too easy....

I think its "political".

anyone that watches buggy would watch truggy.

the size of the vehicle alone would make it easier to follow them during a race,
not to mention how graceful they are in flight.

I didn't mention there was also 30 e buggies. 127 total with the sct's. It's certainly in the top 3 places to race in the eastern US.
