The three listed chassis are available new in my price range around $250 or less.
Or how about a TA05 v2. I run in parking lot races with a bunch of friends not organized racing.
Unless you are running on a really clean prepped parking lot I'd look to something with a little bit more protection around the drivetrain. It doesn't take a large rock to jam up a belt drive car and tear up gears/ pulleys. With regard to the Associated and Sakura most of the parts are pretty inexpensive but plan on an accellerated replacement schedule if you drive a lot outside. The grit gets everywhere. Good luck!
