I got the OFNA Blazer over christmas and it is 100% truggy and in no way shape or form can be compared to the savages,tnx's,revos,lsts,etc,etc. It is a truggy.
The problems about truggies v.s mts started a long time ago when the T-maxx came out. The t-maxx started the mt race class with the first major race for mts being the Pro-line maxx classic a few years ago. Competition grew and people looked for new ways to win and this involved slapping mt tires on buggies with at the time custom shock towers. Hardcore racing got in on the act and offered a 'mutant'maxx conversion kit with a center diff to T-maxx owners who wanted to compete with the onslaught of truggies. Fast Forward to today and finally with the R/C PRO SERIES paving the way rules are in place to distinguish the truggy mts from the 'real' mt chassis and designs. I commend the R/C Pro Series for these rules as ROAR is not interesed as they do not Officially sanction a mt class at their national championship races. The T-maxx was never meant to run against truggies....truggies was just a way for existing buggy owners to compete in an mt class at their club. Monster Trucks is the fastest groeing class in the U.S.A and when it all boils down to it WE ALL KNOW A TRUGGY IS NOT A MONSTER TRUCK irregardless of it outer plastic shell. I encourage any races that are held to follow these guidelines.
