Default Tamiya Dark Impact Vs Duratrax Evader

I know one is 4wd and the other is 2wd but which one is a better built quality car.

Which one will take better backyard bashings?

I have both, and in my experience, the Dark Impact can take more whooping than the Evader.

For backyard bashing I would go with the dark impact but I would wait and see how much the Kyosho ZX5 RTR is going to cost http://www.kyosho.com/eng/products/r...duct_id=102181
One thing to remember is that the Tamiya comes with a silver can 540 motor and msc

I would recommend the dark impact as well. Plastics are pliable enough that it should be durable.
