Losi's are tough, always have been. The 8ight B & T are no different. Both of mine have all the stock plastic, I couldn't break it if I tried. The best I have done is a bent drive shaft.
Just get one and you will not be sorry!!

TBH I think its a question of how slop free you like your buggy. If your just bashing or don't mind some slop the losi's great. BUT my 8b does generate slop in the plastic parts fast, having said that it's not tremendous and seems to stay the same without getting worse for ages once it's arrived.

I do replace the plastic ball cups and wishbones faster on the losi than any previous buggy I've own'd, but only cause I like them to be pretty slop free for racing...............

It's deffinately not an issue that would have stopped my purchase of the buggy, it's awesome.
