The kyosho sounds like a nice car so that seems like a plus, but a guy at the track kept on breaking arms easily so im kinda iffy on that car. the bj4we is mostly like the b44 but with more alum. goodies but the arms are weak, i might get some aluminum ones if they sell any so maybe the
my top 5 choices are
4. kyosho sp
5. losi xxx-4
Since you are mainly going to be bashing as you put it, I wouldnt have the losi on there for the XXX-4. Seen too many posts about durability issues with them. On smooth tracks though they work well.
Since you have a list there of vehicles beyond your post limitations, I would also consider the Academy SBV2 Pro (not the sport).
I had this vehicle, heck, I have had all the academies since the V1 Sport came out and they are definitely durable, with the SBV2 Pro being super durable and a blast to drive. pretty much point and shoot. For the money, especially how much they can be found for used, you get a lot of vehicle.
As for the others listed, other than the XXX-4, I would say you couldn't go wrong for what you want to do.
