I would be the first in the room to call an elephant an elephant....
I would equate 'fragile' to cars or parts that require 'replacement' because they are no longer usable. With the A700, I dont find myself replacing parts such as broken arms, wheel hubs, c-hubs, shock towers and CVDs. Parts that other cars will 'break' with collisions.
My A700 has seen some accidents that would have required new arms, hubs and parts on other cars but with the A700 - parts will 'pop' themselves off with impact. The result is resetting the part as opposed to replacement.
The A700 is not a tank. It is not as race durable as an XRAY. But it is fast and in the right hands and a 'clean' run - will run the table. I wouldnt rally a Ferrari. It has its application and there are other cars that will survive a run after board banging, crashing a board and ping-ponging a track better than the A700.
You will rarely see someone win a race without driving a clean run.
