With that out of the way, the 5ive-T stadium truck is the most rugged, the DBXL Dessert Buggy is probably the fastest, and the MTXL Monster truck is easily damaged due to its TINY front bumper. However, the Monster truck may be the most fun to drive, especially in snow.
The initial buy-in ($$$) may scare some people off, but I assure you, these things have way more "up-time" than any of the Traxxas nitro stuff and even the Kyosho 1/8th scale. They are also much easier to work on, parts are readily available and reasonable, the gas is CHEAP compared to nitro, and they take the bumps without flipping all the time like the smaller stuff. Even the much larger upgrade engines are less expensive that the tiny nitro counterparts. (Although I have not blown an engine like I have with the Nitro stuff) I suspect because these engines are used in all sorts of outdoor landscaping tools, etc. and there are economies of scale. Either way once you go big, you will never look back.
