I attend club races at least 10-12 times a year, and I attend at least 6 large "Nationals/Worlds" type races a year and have been for the last 19 years. I seriously cannot remember the last time someone came to me with a durability complaint. I'm dead serious.
Are you having these said problems with the 1/8th bodies or 1/10th ? What weight are you having the most problems with? Were they Lite weight (.030) or Pro-lite (.025). Or was it with Regular weight .040 on the 1/8th on-road bodies?
I noticed at the bottom of your post that you have a couple of "other" body manufacturers mentioned. Are you sponsored by either?
Thanks in advance for your response.

I had trouble with lightweight 200mm tourer bodies & especially the 200mm Lola bodies tearing
It's not a problem for a single meet. They last plenty great for that
It's for clubbys. I noticed a discernable difference in longevity particularly with the 200mm Lola bodies
I have to pay for my bodies. It's no cheaper for me to run either brand. I've just had a good run with the latters bodies
Btw the SRS-N looks AWESOME
