Buy one of each and drive them into a corner post. The only one that will bounce back is the Mugen. The AE handles much better though.

If anyone says Mugen isnt the toughest, they are sadly mistaken. Anyone that races and knows anything about other brands will say Mugen is #1. I bet any seasoned racer can tell you major problems with any major brand.

It never fails every time I marshal I always have to bend down and pick up a Mugen with broken arms every time all the time it's getting old, and that's just going over jumps! I heard from Mugen that's the only weak part on it, and I guess it's not that bad at least I get my exercise running around picking them up

I have been running Mugen for a few years. I have broken 2 arms (one on a 5t and one on a 6t). 1 I was braking in a new engine the throttle stuck and hit my neighbors garage wot (5t). 2nd one, my buddy decided to hit a jump at the local bmx track with my e-converted truggy and he was at least 25 ft in the air and hit the only log on the course.
People who are having those issues at the track, i bet they overtightened the hinge pins.
But i rather brake an a-arm then snapping my chassis in half and keep braking/bending drive shafts and rear hubs.

They are all strong. Just get the one that you think works the best. The mugen is the strongest truggy for sure but the rest are strong to. I know people have told me my hb d8 is weak and its not. I havent broke one thing on it besides when i hit a pole at 45mph i broke a 3 dollar part, and its taken some crazy crashes and it keeps coming back.

I like my losi. I can cartwheel it down the track and keep going. The only dnf's I have had recently were because of my own wrenching no fault of the truck. The mugen seems tough too. One nice thing about losi is that there are so many atthe track that someone will have the parts you need.

AE's break losi's break mugen's break. HB are just broken. They all break. It's not the ride it's the rider. It's all how hard you are on them. I would say ae, losi or mugen and there is less of a chance it will break.
