If you're not going to race it and just going to be playing around then the car's handling isn't that important so that doesn't matter. The MF2 parts are stronger than the MF1 parts, so MF2 has better durability=less breakage.

the MF1 and MF2 trucks have a lot of parts made of graphite. these parts are excellent for racing as graphite makes those components stiffer and lighter than their composite counterparts. but these parts may not be as forgiving in a crash, so i think thats why pballkid says to look elsewhere.

but IMO its ok to use a stadium truck as a basher. they have excellent handling and jump very well and have decent clearance. they wont be able to conquer all terrains like monster trucks, but stadium trucks still hold their own.

I would get a xxx-t rtr truck to bash with.It's durable and not as much money as the MF2.

No car will take all of the abuse thrown at it. When you crash hard, any car will break.

The redesigned parts on the MF2, graphite or not, will hold up to the most abuse of any electric stadium truck. It will be just fine for bashing around the backyard, and the occasional race.
