I am also looking for a lower priced car because it will not get driven very much. I don't want to spend big bucks on something that is going to sit on the shelf most of the time.
If your looking for lower price, then might I suggest the 3Racing Sakura Zero S
. It's been getting rave reviews for it's price and is fully upgradeable to a top spec touring car should you find yourself wanting to go that route. Parts are cheap and there's a whole thread on this site about it.
I started out with a TC3, then XRAY T2, then Kawada SV10, and now I'm running a Schumacher Mi4 and so far it's the best car I have driven. Tough as nails and once it's dialed in it's smooth as silk to drive. I've also driven a couple XRAY T3's and a TC6, I like the TC6 over the XRAY, but the plastic parts are a little more fragile on the 6, but cheaper than XRAY parts if you do break them.
Let us know how your purchase goes.
