Rufus Ruffcut and his partner Sawtooth are the drivers behind the Buzz Wagon. They are a muscle-bound, ever-smiling lumberjack and a beaver in a wagon made of logs, with buzzsaws for wheels, hence its name. The buzzsaws gave the car the ability to cut through almost anything, (even the solid rock Boulder Mobile) damaging or destroying the object in the process.
Rufus is sometimes seen as a rival to the Slag Brothers, as they not only get their car destroyed in this way frequently (much to their anger), but can also reconstruct their car with ease. The vehicle also has two axes attached to each side which Rufus uses to turn tight corners and boost the Buzz Wagon's speed, and a log on the front which is occasionally used as a single wheel if the car is forced upright onto its front bumper. Rufus Ruffcut and Sawtooth often build bridges whenever a road is out or missing, making them useful to continue the competiton.
2nd place in overall winners?Edit
If one were to count up every last winning from episode, they will find that the overall win for most 1st places is a tie. But according to real world race ruling statistics, should the individual wins be accumlulated, the Slag Bros would hold 1st place, Rufus and Sawtooth would be 2nd and the Ant Hill Mob would take 3rd place.
Rufus Ruffcut was originally voiced by Daws Butler, Greg Burson, and currently by Maurice LaMarche, while Sawtooth was originally voiced by Don Messick, and currently by Frank Welker.
