I am planning on getting a t3 very soon and today me and my friend were running his duratrax evader and the plastic peice that holds the back suspension arms broke. It made me mad beause i will have to pay for it( i was running it). But my question is would my t3 be more durable than his evader st??

A T3 is A LOT more durable. My friend has one and almost never breaks anything, and he crashes all the time.

The plastic DuraTrax uses on the Evader is known to be low quality stuff. Associated only uses the highest quality plastic because the T3 is a top of the line race truck.

in my expierience, the t3 is sort of weak. i have broken countless parts on it, but it could be because i drive it like i stole it.

Clint- The Evader is a piece of garbage. The plastic is junk on it and not too much aftermarket stuff can come close fixing it. I would go T3 easy

Thanks. I am getting the t3

did u ever consider the XXXT. Not that the T3 is a bad truck its just a suggestion.

the losi is an awsome truck i hear. but i am getting a used t3 from some one for an awsome price.

I disagree with tadium 64. I have an evader and have broken hardly any parts on it. I have broken the bulkhead, 1 a-arm, 2 shock towers, and a front body mount, but even a t3 would break if you crashed full throttle into a curb with a 17t motor (I was watching friend's kyosho and inadvertantly held down the throttle...)

I was in a construction site and there is a gap where the grass will be next to the side walk. i hit that little ledge on the side walk, and that plastic just snapped. Sorry if that didnt make any sence.

JB- A friend of mine had one. he broke the front bumper, the front shock tower, the front body mount, front bulkhead, front suspension arm and a servo-saver part from another collision. He also snapped a ball cup when he was driving around on pavement and transfering a tiny 2 feet, with the ground 2 feet under it. In my mind, its a POS
