Default Nitro offroad bashing -practicality-durability-

I`ve been in the hobby for 5 years my first was a traxxas sporttmaxx, so i have had expierience with nitro, and my sporttmaxx is trashed and i`m going to sell it for parts. I`ve since then decided to buy another nitro off road truck, and i was looking for something thats much more durable and more powerfull stock.
I`ve been looking at the: HPI savage line, it looks like a better design, maybe a revo, and maybe the new AE mgt mini (1/10) or the regular mgt. Please dont suggest a car if i`m going to have to change something to get it to run good, i want a car that runs good out of the box, and keep in mind it will be a basher only and a low price is a key feature. any other car suggestions would be great also, thanks JM

Look at the Cen Matrix Arena RTR. In my eyes it is the best rtr out there, metal gear servos, digital radio, good engine, and it is very durable.

so you own one? it looks more like a race truck than a basher, those tires are going to need to be replaced quickly, and a bit pricey, i guess its a contender but for that price I could go with something a little more bashing oriented unless it is more durable than all the monster trucks.
