find the truggy with the cheapest parts.
I would say off hand hotbodies or a losi. and the losi is one tuff truggy.

I just got a losi 8ght t 2.0 . I love it its really fast i put paddle tires on it and took it the the beach and was doing over 70mph. put a after market pipe on it. my buddie has the buggy verson of it and its just as good but i like the way the truggy looks better.

I know that the thunder tiger st-1 is tough as nails but I could have problem to get the parts...
What about the Hyper St ? I know is a bit heavy .. but should be tough ..

I love my truggy! I have the Hyper 10TT and with some fat wheels its great! I know its not nitro or 1/8, but its been durable and alot of fun! Im running a Mamba Max Pro, SCT 3800kv 4 pole, Hitec HS5645MG and just ordered a set 2.8 PL Trenchers for her!

Toughest truck ever hands down is the mugen 5t and you can find them cheap everywhere! If your just bashing you could buy 2 for the price of a new losi 8t.
