Default Stock Buggy vs Sport Buggy

Trying to get into 2wd 1/10 buggy and the two most popular classes at my track are Stock Buggy and Sport Buggy. Can anyone explain what these 2 are and which you would recommend? Thanks

Sport buggy I am guessing is the same as sportsman buggy at other places. Should be all the rules of regular stock buggy but for those who race a slower pace.

My local track has expert, intermediate, and sportsman buggy. Divides up the competition so everyone can race competitively with peers. Even then some nights we still have A and B groups of each version as 17.5 buggy is very popular

One of the two probable is for stock electronics if you buy a rtr and the other might be a certain motor size.

You should ask your track what the difference is. We can only guess. Yes one is likely more of a sportsman or novice class but that again is a guess. They may or may not have different rules as well, which would also be a guess.

Ask your track

There's no reason to have that much separation in one class. That's what resorts and A,B,C, and D mains are for. But that's a whole different discussion.

If you've got a big turnout you absolutely have to divide them like that. 24 buggies on a track at once is a disaster, especially if 10 are running 22 second laps and 14 are running 26-33.

I love dividing the classes with a big turnout because I drive smooth without hammer fisting the throttle all the time and hate getting stuck in a class with guys who just hammer from corner to corner and crash into everything. Nothing wrong with it, just makes it tougher on me to try to run a clean race against others who are trying to run a clean race.

What? Why would you have 24 cars on the track at one time anyway?

If there is only two buggy classes and one of them is stock then the other must be mod, I've never been to a track that didn't have mod buggy and it always one of the more popular classes. Stock would mean a 17.5 motor and the track may or may not allow boost and mod would be any motor you want to run.

Just a guess, but your "sport" class is likely the same as my "novice" class. Basically it's just for beginner drivers. In your case, it's all buggy which is very cool. The Novice class I'm taking about is a composite group of beginner buggy, SC and ST.
