So in a matter of a week, you went from I don't know anything about Nitro cars and don't want to spend on something too expensive
.....to, "I'm going to pick up a Xray NT1"
(one of the most expensives cars on the market)
Honestly!....if you just want to get your feet wet. Get a new or used car for $200 to $350 bucks. That should put you in the ballpark for doing all that you mentioned. Once you experienced 4 to 6 months worth of Nitro RC then you can decide if you want to get a racer kit or just stay with the car you have and bash the hell out of the parking lots. Either way, no excess money is spent.
So, unless you have deep pockets, which it doesn't sound like you do....head the voice of credit card/checkbook reason. Don't go all out when buying your first nitro car.
