The mini 8ight buggy is superior to the mini 8ight truggy. The truggy has bigger wheels, so it is easier to find tires, because it has 1/10 buggy sized wheels. However, this reason on top of the larger size and extra weight is why it is inferior to the mini 8ight buggy. They are virtually the same, but one has to put up with more weight and higher drivetrain strain. The electronics, software, and almost all the hardware is exactly the same.
