Default Best 1/5th scale buggy or truck?

Im interested in getting a 1/5th scale buggy or truck. Now that there are a few models to choose from which ones do you think are the most fun, easist to maintain? I'm not racing it but just driving it on weekends when I get a chance.

Truck or buggy? Losi or HPI? What do you guys have and what are your opinions?

Thanks all.

I have had a Losi and HPI Baja SC. For bashing I would go with the HPI all the way. The Losi eats servos and parts wear very fast. The HPI is a solid platform and has been out for years!!!

Also, this forum group probably is not the best group to ask 1/5 scale questions. Check out http://www.rclargescale.com/forum/ or try this for Losi 5ive info http://losi5iveforum.com/index.php?.
