Losi SCTE is a blast to drive and is tough!

Losi 1/36th Micro highroller. Micro's are as near to invincible as you can get.

My Kyosho cars have been out of the box the most durable 10th scale cars I have ever driven. 2 months of weekly use on the RB6 and it's just as slop free as the day I got it.

Durability wise yes, it can be a basher or racer

As far as I can remember my strongest RC was a 808. I would love Xray to come out with a XB9E

Associated RC10. Back then we didn't run so much traction/power. Cars lasted forever.

Current- Losi XXX cars and Mugen 1/8 buggy. Good designs that are overbuilt where it counts.

They had some troubles with motor mounts cracking on the eco, do you know if they fixed that?

I didn't know about that. Mine is a Tekno conversion, was nitro before then.

Then the mount is durable, I switched my crappy RCMonster mount for a Tekno v4 conversion on my JQ and it holds much better now .

I'm wondering when Mugen will release an evolution for the eco
