I had own both rc18mt and mlst. I did not broke anything while I bash w/ those two kits but I've heard lots of bad things going wrong w/ the mlst namely it's servos and diffs. Never heard anything bad w/ regards to rc18t/mt/b.

Absolutely 100% go for the RC18T. I have not owned a Mini LST but I've worked on plenty, and driven even more. They don't track straight, aren't as tough as they should be, etc. My RC18T was absolutely bulletproof, jumped awesome, handled unbelievably well.
The only downside to the rc18t is that in loose dirt, the gears tend to accumulate rocks, but it's nothing 30 seconds and an X-Acto knife can't fix.
