Default 1/10 Rally CAR

I wish to buy a nitro 1/10 rally car that can play on road and some minor off road with cetain degrees of sand, pebbles, dirt, bumps and very mild jumps ?

What do your recommend ?

Inferno GT was recommended but it is 1/8, thus, parts are more expensive and
I find that it is a bit bulky and heavy and doesn't accelerate as fast as 1/10.

HPI super nitro rally has already been discontinued !!!

Any existing models that suit the class of Rally Car for 1/10 ?

I know for 1/8 there is Inferno GT but I cannot afford it and parts for 1/8
are much more expensive .

This is the only one. Parts are not that expensive compared to a 10th scale.

Tamiya use to make a 1/10 rally car called the TG10 WRX. Spare parts for the Inferno GT aren't that expensive. Check out http://infernogt.proboards102.com/index.cgi You may even find a IGT on ebay in good condition
