TT01 is a great car for bashing but I am under impression it is a very expensive car for what you get . There are some bad points , such as poor plastic quality . You need to buy a alu motor mount and alu driveshaft , and of course ball bearings and oil shocks if you buy the standard TT-01 . However , it will still be a toy honestly .
I don't see why you are afraid of used cars . Premium brands ( Xray , Associated , HB , TRF , Yokomo ... ) are built at a high level and 90% of the cars are still very good , you just need to inspect them in person . I would reccomend a TC3 because it has a tubular chassis and it is shaft driven so it is almost indestructible . A friend of mine still races this car at a high level with sucess ( he ditched a new TC5 because he thinks the old tank is better ! ) . It is great for bashing , racing , drifting , .. everything
. Other good options in my opinion are a used Yokomo MR4 or a new Tamiya TA-05
