If you are not looking to spend alot of money, do two things, first, look around the track and see what others are running, second, look at parts support for the track. Than go to the for sale thread and see what you can find that your local track supports and what the others racers might be able to help you with.
There is nothing wrong with the XXX-S except that everytime you might need a part, it will have to be ordered. The car more than 4 years past it's prime and been replaced by two other cars. Same wiht the TC3 and the TC4, yes there are parts for these cars but they are not going to be on the self at the track.
Onroad cars don't take a beating like offroads do, they hold up pretty well so spending the money on a used car is a pretty safe investment, and if you decide you are not going to stick with it you might still get most of your money back out of it, the XXX-S, well you just spent $300 buck and it is only worth about $100 if you sold it 3 months later, and that is not money for the car. Oh, yeah, it will take about 2 years to really even start to get the onroad thing so just stick with it, it is alot of fun the better you get.
