Questions?? Strongest onroader available

Hi guys. I'm looking for a very strong 1/10 tc/pancar/f1 or 1/8 scale "lola style" gp car to have fun at the track with... But the problem is I keep crashing A LOT due to attention span issues. I am utterly confused by the myriad options out there, and I want to know if anyone has first hand experience with any cars made out of old nokia-grade plastic .

Preferences (in order):
1. Belt driven rather than shaft. I have difficulty meshing bevel gears...
2. I am a sucker for oddball cars as I am a certified weirdo and lunatic anyway
3. Can accept saddle pack battery configuration as that is what I have from running buggies. Or atleast can somehow fit saddle pack batteries.

Hpi sprint or ofna ob4 international, I own (and crash) both, they've held up through some pretty impressive high speed collisions, thick plastics. The hpi is easy to get parts for the ob4 is impossible to find ANYTHING for, I can't even find another rolling chassis on line, the ob4 nitro version is waaay more prevalent. The suspension parts are shared between the nitro and electric versions, which is a tad bit easier to track down. That being said, I have noticed my more modern"race" oriented carbon fiber chassis are pretty tough too.
