You may be able to get clos(er) to 300 if you buy second hand stuff. And you may end up with a better car in the process even if not the latest model.ta

Team Associated makes a 2.4, brushless, shaft driven RTR called the Apex cost 290$

HPI makes a shaft RTR called the E10 220$

I never ran either but by the specs I would go with the Team Associated.

......maybe an old thread but the 'question' tends to resurface-a touring car for approximately $???.??. Magazines (RC Car,RC Driver, etc.)have articles about vehicles in general [ground , air , sea]- but the days of buying periodicals have past for some people........anyways, good luck with the search.

If you can get an Apex 17.5t RTR around 1380grams for $300, then go for it. Otherwise get the new tc4 or used belt car with second hand proven electronics from a standup racer...

If you want new, definately go for the Spec R S2, its fully upgradeable with the newly released R2. Alternatively, go to your local track, see what the fast boys race and buy a good used one. You can then take their advice on set ups.

Lightbulb Best bet on a budget

Your absolute best bet is to look for a good used car on the forum. Nearly everything I have has come from Craigslist and more recently here on rc tech.
If you buy from somebody on here with a good rating odds are youl get a nearly if not a totally brand new car for worst case half price if you aren't in a rush. I've bought probably ten used cars and all were amazing deals but one and even that pair is still worth what I paid just not the crazy deal I got with the rest, folks give this stuff away nearly. Youl get three cars and all your consumable parts for the price of one new one if your patient. Just the way I been doing it I'm kinda new to rc but don't see a reason to spend a fortune when cars that came out a month ago are on sale used cheap if ur not in a rush. Used is where it's at on a budget now if I was rich I'd proly buy brand new and have no patience but sadly I'm not.
