Since youhaven't stated racing/bashing or even the type of car, my advice would be the following:
Buy a 2WD electric stadium truck. Eg Losi XXX-T, Associated T4.
The shocktowers are protected by the shape of the body, and the cars themselves are extremely robust.
What's this Associated breaks arms and Losi doesn't crapola!? They all do. Every crash is different! I ran a BK2 Losi for 2 years without breaking a sinlge thing. And I bet if it was a B4, I wouldn't have either.
