The cost is the same for both xray and corally. The damage you experienced will happen with any car. Hitting the wall with the same conditions.

They are both good cars. I only have experience of owning the corally, but I think an 008 would be a better options in all fairness.

However, I would like to add that I've not broken a single part on my phi, and I race it weekly for the past 18months. Of course, there is wear, which requires parts - diff rebuilds, pincushions. I replaced the steering hub for alloy on the first build. I've had no issues with bending any of the alloy parts either... umm apart from the front driveshaft’s that developed a tiny bit of wobble... but thats spools for ya!

I've owned both and currently drive the 008. I loved the Phi and hated to sell it, but it was a business deal. With the new Phi on the way, I wanted to sell it before the threads got loaded with them. I still miss it. It was a great car and handled very well running rubber on carpet. I picked the 008 up in a great deal and decided to use it as an interim car. It handles so well that I'm going to stick with it for now. Not better than the Phi, just different. I did buy the aluminum knuckles for the Phi and never broke anything more than 1 a-arm. Rubber tires aren't as abusive as foams though. I had a 008 before and broke knuckles and c-hubs every other run. I haven't broken anything on this one. I guess it' just luck of the draw. Either way you go, you're getting a great car. Hope that helps.
