Default Durango DETC410 or Hobao H4E - which is best ?

Looking at a new car, which of the two would you recommend, and why ? Any weaknesses with either ?

The Durango is quick, but it breaks a lot against the boards. The Hobao is also meant to begood but it's stronger than the Durango.

If looking at new cars you should also look at the VBC wildfire and the ARC, they both get great reviews and seem rapid on the track.

Thanks mate - thought you'd say Tamiya !!

Don't tell me Woody's wrecked the Durango as well. He'd make any car seem fragile !

You couldn't give me either one, but I agree with this.

I've had both cars, hands down the Durango is far better car in handling and also strength, all the people that say the Durango is fragile must have their track boards made out of concrete, I've been running the Durango since it came out, run indoor on carpet track and outdoor parking lot track and have not broken a single part and I've hit tons of shit. When I ran the ofna if you tap a corner it would break, their double jointed front axle would break all the time also, I ran the ofna when it first came out also I know they have beefed it up since the first run to address these concerns. So if your only looking at these two offerings I would go Durango
