Thanks in advance for any input.
When you say "on road", do you mean a touring car or a pan car?
Your 1/12 and 1/10 pan cars will be cheaper up front. Easier to set up, too. They're all priced within a few bucks of each other, for the most part.
If you want a touring car, no decent cars are really cheap. The TC5 is one of the lowest priced of the bunch. Parts are easy to get too.
As is suggested with a lot of new people, head out to your track and see what the guys are racing. You'll want something you can get help with, and something you can get parts from your local shop.
