I'd go with buggy personally(not sure how good that one is though).
I'm going the bet the buggy is stronger than the maxx, and it will handle better.

Only potential problem with the buggy at this time is the lack of parts support due to it being relatively new on the market in the USA.

Might want to look at this
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Off-Road-Buggy its not RTR so you will need a radio, servo, and motor/ESC
it uses the same parts as the Jammin's so parts are available(if you manage to somehow break it).

What are you using it for? Racing or bashing? The Emaxx is definitely weaker but can go more places.

As for runtimes, that mostly depends on the battery (or batteries in the Emaxxs case). 5000 Mah batteries are going to last far longer than, say, an 1800 Mah battery.
