Losi Ten SCTE: fast, fun and tough as nails. I've raced mine weekly for nearly a year and the only major failure was bending the stock chassis and rear shock tower after casing a big air triple while messing around after a race. It actually still drove even though the chassis was so bowed that the front center shaft wouldnt reach the front diff!

My xb808'11 is hands down the most reliable car I have ever had.
I have even won a race in extreme amounts of water and mud because the 5 guys in front of me DNF.

Def not the Losi SCTE look at the forum and you will see its junk stock- the chassis and shock towers bend like butter and all kinds of problems with diffs leaking and out drives wobbling, needs lots of upgrades to be good.

Without a doubt any XRAY - 808, XB9 or XT-8. Never had a DNF from a failed part in 3 years

I have to add Losi's 8T 1.0.....started with one, converted it, then another, then a 3rd one.
Speed, handling, jumping....they do it all and breakage is far and few between.

Electric? My Stampede 4x4. You can beat the utter tar out of that thing and it just bounces around and asks for more.

Though my Baja 5B is on-par with it. Holy crap that thing is tough.

I have to say 10th scale,my 22 buggy and my scte when i owned it(still have the 22) and for 8th scale my Caster Ex1.5r.My 22 i run in mod class and i came flying down the straight away and nailed the first corner coming off the straight and broke the corner pipe off and only ended up with a popped off steering link,threw it back on and ran some more.And my caster has to be the best handling and most durable 8th scale i have owned and seems really durable i only broke a wing mount but that was coming off a triple into a steel pole in the back of the track.So i mean i dont rarely crash and when i do it is so bad i clench my teeth,but surprisingly my current fleet has been fantastic to me so far

Stop ramming it into trees and it won't break!

I've had mine OVER a year and have broken ONE single part! A steering hub, thats it... But I race mine only and also can drive halfway decent....

You can bend butter? Sounds like a line from this guy!
