I've owned the xxx4. The track that I race at is too rough for it, I would assume the same for youre track. As for the ZX-5, I've only seen one at our track. It finishes only about 20% of the time due to breakage. In its defence, the driver doesn't know how to get off the throttle. So this one would be a bad example to judge it by. Personally I have a xx4 WE, it was fragile at first, I've sence learned how to make it stronger. I haven't dropped out of a race in months. I love my xx4 and would sugest it to any one.

local track is a lot like the rough part in some places, but also has a few smooth fast turns, so looks like the ZX-5 will do great on it

That vid may have sold me on one? I've been contemplating a ZX-5 vs. the Academy. Thanks, I sure would like to see them side by side.
