Default how much to get in 1/10 tc

I plan on racing carpet touring this winter. Im wondering how much it will cost me to be competive in this class. I already have servos, and a m8 radio, and charger. So I will need a car , speed controler, motors and batteries, and what ever else I forgot.

If you go NiMh, you'll also need some type of battery discharge and equalizing system.
