Default Durability 9.5 vs Ultra mbx

I am going to buy my son a buggy for Christmas and was wondering opinions on the 9.5 and Mbx pro...I already have an R2 and know they hold up very well,is the 9.5 as durable?? I am thinking of switching to the 9.5 also but only if it will hold up as well as an Ultra mbx..I got the chance to drive one at our club and love the handling characteristics of it..

The 9.5 and MBX (and Ultra series) are made pretty much in a similar design with a few interchangable parts, they're evenly durable but the 9.5 is more dialed for both bashing and racing except for the non-legal Force .26 that's included. I would go for the 9.5 that way he has plenty of choices for aftermarket upgrades in the future.
