So I'm buying my first big RC truck this weekend and I have poured over the internet trying to decide which one is my best option. Durability is my main issue in the end and I would like to know what you all think. I've narrowed it down to the Nero, Kraton and Losi XXL2E.

Get a Kraton roller on EBay. Add the electronics , tires, etc that you want. A Kraton with some quality electronics is awesome. You can find just the chassis sometimes. Or chassis with the body.

It's a lot of work but the Kraton chassis is so simple. It's cut and dry for building an unreal 6S machine.

Vanning nailed it. The Kraton wins hands down. It's the lightest, simplest, and has the attention of some aftermarket manufacturers. I had the Nero... It's now gone. The Kraton is still number one in my collection. It's also the cheapest! Buy yourself some good lipos and a charger with it and don't look back.

Get the Kraton, I own a Nero, Kraton and a Talion. I now leave the Nero parked and mostly run my Talion and Kraton.

I agree with everyone. Get the Kraton. I have a couple of Kratons and a Nero, Big Rock, and Fazon. I find myself running the Kratons way more. I have one Kraton stock that I run on 6s and the other one is a roller that I put a Nero 200 blx system in it that has big tires and I run on 4s. The Kratons are such beasts that the only thing I have broken so far are a wing mount a a wing. I beat the snot out of them. The Neros I also love running but they are so heavy that I end up breaking something small on them. They are fast as hell and stablebut if I want to jump and not worry about anything I take the Kratons out. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the advice, I'm going with the Kraton. I like the looks of it better anyway.
