falconsekido.com or brushlesshobbies.com

Both offer motor/escs at a great price, but my final choice would be falconsekido because they offer an 180 day warranty on their products......

This would be a good combo:

If they allow boost/turbo in the 17.5 class I would go with this one:

If u can't run boost/turbo DONT get the hobby wing motor . It is locked at 0 timing and will not have the midrange/top end necessary to race at any level . If boost /turbo is aloud it will be just fine .
I would find a trinity D3 17.5 for offroad if its a blinky class.

I would really recommend the SP Reventon-R combo. Its a nice combo for the price. Just check temps often when u are dialing in the gearing.

There are alot of options out there, you asked for some on the lower end of the price spectrum and were given several options. On the other hand YOU have not given us very much to go on if its a blinky class, boosted class or what specs you follow (ROAR rules?)

In all honesty I would take liquidg up on his offer for the D3. Use the search as 17.5 is a very common motor class and this has been covered previously.
