Does anybody know of some rc companys that makes an rtr truggy.When I say rtr I mean like the revo you buy the batterys and fuel and things like that so people dont get confused. I know there are companys that make conversion kits to turn a buggy into a truggy or a monster truck into a truggy.

Try the Hot Bodies Lightning Stadium. I have one, and it rips. Good power in stock trim, and it handles great...

From what i've seen at the track, and heard on other forums the hot bodies lighting stadium is the best rtr truggy for the money. Maybe mike can comment on this.

I run the Hot Bodies truggy. They are an awesome RTR truggy. I can usually at least place wherever I race with it, and mine is pretty much bone stock (Lightning stadium pro-Hot Bodies). I happen to have two in stock if someone is looking for one.

Back on topic...
Ofna will also be coming out with a truggy (or two?). I saw it (them?) at RCX, and talked to one of the reps about it. It is called the Jammin' something or other, and aparently it isn't just a buggy with longer suspension arms and a truck body, but it was redesigned completely separate from the Jammin' buggy.

Yeah I heard that to it looks cool but I know that the price tag will be up there too.

Mayhem st man that truck rock i beat people in drags and on the track. The only thing i did to it was put new rims and tires

There's a few 'proper' truggies coming out that are more than buggy conversions.There's the Thunder tiger ST1,the HPI hellfire is out soon,the jammin' is a pro spec kit but it's the dog's danglies.It's the first fully pro spec true truggy ie re-engineered, long arm,extended chassis and looks to be the only for a while.These truggies will outlap the buggies on the right track.

I personally love the jammin.. Ofna did a great job, they have got a very good sence of engineering.

:L: I think this is a compliment.

Yeah I think the ofna jammin is the s***, price is the thing that gets to me. I've talked to the owners of acehardware hobbies and they'll start running those when they race. That speaks to the engineering that ofna did on that truck. They'll never run anything else. I run a gs conversion sut and I think it rips with a hyper 8 in it. As for the xtm mammoth st, holy s*** it comes with a 2speed tranny, that most tracks won't allow, but it has good bashing qualities, high speed, almost bullet-proof and is a great jumper.

HPI is supposed to be releasing the Hellfire mid January if your still looking for a truggy. I got the 3rd one my LHS gets in reserved and it's destined to be converted to brushless. Tower has it listed for pre-order at $589.
