I know people who have all 3 trucks.
Evader: Somewhat fragile, it's an OKAY truck...
Rustler: This truck's pretty durable, adjustments aren't a convienience on some things..
T4: Pretty durable as well, adjustments = good. Nice peice of work. If you plan on just bashing, probably the Rustler or T4. If you plan on racing, go for the T4... If I was in your shoes, I'd go for the T4.. Almost all my cars are Associated, they're all excellent.
