Default what rtr car should i go with

i think i will stick to rtr and do up grades later like the motor. I want a
1/10 scale car for playing around in the parking lots and want a fast car. Looked the traxxas 4-tec but worried about the motor because if its the same as the tmaxx i don't won't it. Looked at the xr 80 made by power racing
it has a 2.6 motor but cant spend more than $ 600 can. so where should I go.

the xr 80 in this link

The XR80 is an 1/8 scale car. Fast for the price, but maybe more than you're looking for.

If you're going to upgrade, buy a kit now. It will work out much cheaper in the long run. If you stay with RTR, either Associated NTC3 or HPI.

why rtr.
if ya buy a kit you can assamble it. personaly i find that fun. and you know your car inside out. if something brakes you know where and how to fix it.
you got 600 dollar to spend. thats a lot.
for 600 u can have a 1:10 pro car with engine.
buy the mongoose g4 or hpi r40 put in an engine and electronics and you got a better car then a rtr.
