Default Race Truggy or Buggy which is better for dirt?

If any of you race Truggies as well as Buggies which do you prefer(on dirt)? The truggy has a larger track and wider tire than the buggy so which would handle betteron track (dirt)?

i race both and i would say truggy is better. but buggy will teach you how to drive. racing buggy some helps you go faster with truggy because the truggy is alot more stable.

Depends on the track. The more blown out a track is, the better the Truggy will be. On a smooth track, the Buggy will be faster. Truggy is more forgiving and the Buggyreacts to steering quicker. Although you can run a .28 engine in a Truggy, most do not. With equal engines,the Buggy will be fasterbecause it is lighter. The Buggy is hindered because of the narrow tires allowed, so it's more apt to traction roll.
