TA05 would be a good belt driven car.

for super beginner I suggest Tamiya tlo1 or TTo1 but if you want a car that is competitive and willing to build, Ta05 is the Best Choice

Well, if you want a car that can definitely grow with the user, I would go with the RTR TC4. As your skills progress, you can upgrade the car all the way to the factory team level if you decide to start racing. Plus, with it being an American made car, parts support is excellent.

XXXS Sport II because of the sealed drivetrain, much less worries about stones ruining your spur gear and pinions. Easily upgradeable to graphite parts as parts break, making it lighter, stronger, faster.

Better yet-look in the for sale section here-you can find XXXS G+ with spare parts for under a $100. YOu'll of course need to buy all your electronics seperate which will knock you way out of the $200 range.

TA05 or TC4 both are competitive once set up correctly and you should be able to find a rtr TA05 somewhere

TA05, out of the box the setup is more than good enough.
