Hi RCers, I was wondering if you could help me. I recently lost possession of a much loved Losi Mini T Baja which I used as a backyard basher at picnics, beaches and BBQs to entertain for many years. I wanted to grab another one, only to learn they are not on the market any more...

I hoping you can help me identify a nice RTR system that is pretty robust and needs little maintenance but can easily be repaired, and wont cost an arm and a leg (like the Baja mini T).

I was looking at the Losi Mini 8ight and seeing a lot of people complaining about the plastic suspension parts breaking easily. Is this my best option and just upgrade those parts immediately, or is there something else I should be looking at? A key consideration for me will be being able to get affordable and large capacity backup battery packs for when one of the kids flattens its before letting anyone else have a go (I used to have 3 nimh battery packs), and/or maybe a lipo compatible system.

Am I asking for unicorn and the Mini 8ight is my best option, or have I failed to dig deep enough? Should I really be looking at like a Losi Tenacity 1/10 or a Traxxas or something? Any and all help appreciated.
