I would find a used xxx-s Graphite plus, Great car and parts are easy to come by since it uses the same parts as the rtr/drift cars.

I've ran an Xray Evo2. It was a nice car all round. I did break parts here and there, but I've always had plenty of spares to go round.

I TQ'd and finished 2nd in the A Main in Brushless rubber tire last week with my TA05R.
The thing I like about the TA05 platform is that it seems to have a large "sweet spot" for its setup. Its not nearly as sensitive to setup changes
as my other two cars (007 and MI3). Put it together per the kit instructions and its dialed out of the box for rubber tire racing. Parts are easy to get and inexpensive. I think that makes it an excellent car for those getting started.

Buy used...probably Xray since there are so many versions that its easy to find used ones that are hardly 'used' at all.

-or-

Go with something like a TA05R.

My only Pet Peeeve with the TA-05 is changing a Belt

The Xray T2 takes only about 5min to change a belt

You can a brand new Cyclone S for $160 bucks from stormer or tower hobbies.It uses some of the same parts as pro 4 and you can up grade to a hara edition cyclone later because all the parts will fit it.Just a thought.

Cyclones are great! Parts won't break the bank like an Xray either.

if your on a budget.. look at what you already have... if you only have metric allen drivers then i wouldn't suggest the TC3 or TC4.
