Default Off Road Noob Needs Help!

Right, I need help getting a basher that won't break.
At the moment I have a duratrax evader ST, and the thing was fine until i picked myself up a 6 turn hacker BL system, and now I drive it for 3 seconds, and break something.

I'm looking for direction on a new stadium or buggy, but nothing too pricey as I doubt I'll be racing it. I just love having this much power in something so small.
So, yeah... Durable, cheap(ish) and spares need to be available.

Cheers

You already have a proven (XXT) design and the duratrax parts should be guaranteed and pretty flexible/tough (except "graphite" parts).

A T4 is super. With that motor, stay with a truck.

With that motor, breaking is inevitable.
