Default what makes um best.

Thought a topic would be good saying what different things are good about different cars!

For example
What car on the market is the strongest to resist umpact when crashing into barriers and things? (not that i need 1 or anything!!!)

i would say the older rs4s. my rs4 rally/pro i have slammed into walls with a 13t motor and i havent broken a single part yet. well the occasional ball cup that gets loose, and cracked bodies are about it. and the rally was my first car so it certainly can meet abuse.

I dont own or have ever driven an xray. But From some of the most horrendus crashes I seen, they seem to drive away from it all. They are a Tank!! The're almost industructible.

Not sure what parts on the Xray you're speaking of, the arms are $4.95, spindles are $4.95, and C-Hubs are $5.50. No higher than any other car IMO.
