The Caster is as good as an MBX at half the price. Unless you are a pure racer, you don't need an MBX6.

Take that extra $ and buy an spare Caster...

What's a good durable basher that doesn't wear itself out so fast?
Mate, whatever buggy you have, bashing's going to hurt it. I'd suggest that if your playing not racing, then steer clear of race oriented chassis's.

I can't suggest a car for you, but I'm sure that no race buggy will survive as a long term serious basher.

I see in that case I may just stick to my RC8e it seriously has taken a beating. I am looking into the Vorza though.

The Losi 8ight has been the most durable buggy I've ever owned. It is still much more durable than the RC8.

Have yhou updated your rc8e to the rc8be? My rc8e with a few upgrades can virtually hand any jump... as long as you land on all fours. Mine has been the toughest rc I have ever owned untill the flux xl.
