I think some may have missed this point, no mention of being competitive.
I run a NTC3 and it's a decent car with a ton of parts and setup support. It can be pretty competitive in club racing at the lower levels. Personally, I have found the car to be reliable though a bit harder to work on than some. Getting the right setup makes all the difference in how it drives.
If the price is right, I'd say go for it.
If you think you may want to race competitively, then I'd follow the the other suggestions here and get a newer belt drive car.
