Have a look at my site
and this thread
which I've just brought back from the dead.
Depending on where you're writing from (can't tell from your profile), availability of the car may be a problem - there's not many of them in the US, but if you're in the UK you've got the BC at £99, great for the money (just add £20 worth of ballraces), or the new BC Special (£250), which we think has the capacity to surprise a few people - it is Japanese champion, after all.
Mine is a slightly upgraded BC. I don't run it on dirt (slippy floor or indoor carpet), but it's handling out of the box is very neutral, with a slight understeer.
