Take a look on ebay, they might have a TC3 around there at a good price. you could also try a HPI sprint 2.

I would definately choose the TC3 for your needs. They are still available and parts will be available for the car for a long time to come as well. Its probably the best starter car there ever was.

you won't be dissappointed with either. but f you get an rtr you will have to buy a stock 27t motor to race since the rtr's come with 19's.

The TC3 is a great car..and right now you can get a used one with many hop-ups and extras for under $150..that leaves enough $$$ to get a radio
