Default If you had 250$ to spend on a kit, what would you buy?

Which kit would you buy (1/10 electric) if you had 250 to spend and why? (only the chassis kit not electronics)

I'd have to say the XXX-S GP is one of the best values in sedans right now, but as you can see from my sig, i am a bit biased

Save a bit more money until you have around 300 dollars, then you will have many more options than with 250.

I have both a XXX-S G+ and a TC3 factory team and I believe Losi is a much better car overall.

But another big thing to consider is what does your local track stock in parts? You are bound to break a few pieces trying out a new car, so it is handy to have the parts at hand instead of having to come home and order them...

$250? You're $20 from a XXX-S G+! Just get that, don't tell me you can't dig another $20 from your couch. Just think of all the money you'll save from not buying so many hop ups.

Losi XXX-S G+ is the way to go. It's the best performing car out there right now and is a great value. FT TC3 i would say is next in line. If your track carries losi parts, get the losi.
