In the year I've had my b4, I've "broken" a rear arm. Sadly it was due to the stupidity of myself.

well thats one for B4

The AE plastic is kinda soft and the car has a lot of play in it to start with so it does kinda allow the B4.1 to inherently absorb hits because of that fairly well. Kyosho's plastic is stiffer/brittle and the car is "tight" - I broke my RB5 more than any other car I've owned, sometime just on regular jump landings. My current buggy, a Tamiya TRF201 has proven a pretty good compromise of weight, quality and durability. However, if you want what based on my observations would be the king of buggy crashing and driving away, you want the Losi 22. I can't remember seeing one of those thing leave the track with a suspension part hanging off or whatnot.

The bottom line though is that buggys can and will break more often than a SC or stadium truck. With the arms hanging way out there and no body or big soft tires offering protection, it's just going to happen.

Knock on wood...;) Nothing when running stock, wear rates to stuff like the diff and outdrives were even fantastic. Just started running mod again and the same is holding true. Very pleased and the price can't be beat right now.

As far as a durable or the most durable buggy it isnt gonna be in the 1/10 scale thats for sure. The most durable buggies out there are the 1/8 scales.

That is a trade off, in SC what you do not spend in arms you will make up for in trashed out bodies.

Everything has a cost of impact. The question is what do you want to spend it on.

Just run an 810, more or less a tough 4x4-SCT with a buggy body, not really 1:8 and not really 1:10... just like SC
