Default Best 1/8 electric truggy 2015

I am interested in getting into the RC hobby with my kids. I want something where we can practice jumping in our backyard that can go through rocky dirt roads and grass. I used to have the nitro cars as a kid but want low maintence, FAST, durable and great out of the box. Budget is less than $1000. Here are some truggy's I found online and needed your opinion. I know people may be bias toward certain brands but that is ok, it's common in every hobby.

1/8 scale Truggy options:

Tekno ET 48.3
Mugen Seiki MBX7TR Eco
Durango DEX8T
TLR 8ight-T E 3.0
Losi 8ight-T RTR?
Arrma Talion BLX
Kyosho Inferno ST-RR EVO.2
Any Others?

Basically we can keep this a poll and I will keep track on which truggy's are most popular.

1. Losi/Mugen
2. Tekno
3. Aarma Talion
4. Team Associated RC8T
5. Durango
6. Kyosho

In my opinion Losi and Mugen are tied for first. They're tough, plenty of aftermarket and stock parts support from many different places. I put Tekno in 2nd because parts are online only but there's multiple sources at least. The Aarma is a nice budget rig, decent parts support. I've read the stock knuckle bearings fail and the wing mount breaks easily but not a bad rig overall. I'm not sure what version of Associateds RC8T is out right now but they're a decent rig, I'm not a fan of the 4s electronics included with them though. Good parts support and decent aftermarket too. Durango I'm not familiar with their latest offering but I'd be concerned with long term parts availablitity. Same deal with the Kyosho, not a fan of how they e dropped parts support and changed distribution channels in the past. As it stands now only a few distributors can get you parts.

four4x4play yes for bashing a truggy go for the mugen ,losi , tekno these seem to be very good
with the nitro motors you would get more run time, and you can refill it on the fly and continue bashing , on the dirt roads and grass ok mugey
