I would go with the jc wing because it is really durable and mine hasn't broke yet and it's been in the typical racing abuse for about 7 months and it also keep my e-buggy to the ground and helps it's stability in the air.

The JConcepts wing is much more durable because of it only has holes through the wing; no long slats. So there's alot more material and no sharp corners, which is where cracks are more likely to develop. It makes the whole thing more durable.

When I was first learning, I went through about a wing every weekend from landing on the wing. Bought a JC wing and managed to go the rest of the season on that same wing.

My preference now are the Losi wings, but they aren't even close to what you might call "durable".

Jconcepts wings are the best wings made in my opinion.

ive had both and Jconcepts wing sucks. it is more durable but not as good. it bent easy but never broke, it also made my buggy jump weird. the High donforce lasted me 6+ months and worked alot better. it didnt bend but the "tabs" did crack. but either one is ok i just hated the way the jconcepts made my buggy and truggy jump, felt like it wanted to jump nose high and at a angle almost always.

Wing breakage is directly related to crashing, so the people who break a wing every race, are crashing upside down a lot. I think you should use the stock wing for each car because the cars are designed using those wings, and if you get a different wing it can cause the car to not handle and jump as good as the stock wing. If you are breaking a lot of wing try boiling the wing for 10 minutes, it will soften up the plastic.

Default wing damage

It really doesn't matter which wing you buy if you crash alot upside down then of course your gonna wear the wing out,or break the wing and the wing mount.
