Ruben-

That's a REALLY broad question because you can get many different kinds of cars with lots of power. The right choice for you will depend on how you want to use it...street bashing, indoor carpet racing, outdoor asphalt racing, other? If you can post that info then the forum members can give you some advice tailored to your needs.

If you dont know much about nitro you had better stick with electric. I would suggest the Xray T2 it the older version but it's tough as nails.

I agree with the TC3 or TC4 especially if you are only interested in bashing, they are really tough cars

Why do so many people ask these questions? It all depends on the circumstances, how much money you want to spend, what's popular at your track, what kind of setup are you looking for. There are a million questions you can ask and a million answers. Go into the world and find out for yourself.

Seems like a Tamiya TA05 would be a great choice. Inexpensive, would be good for bashing, and parts should be supported for some time to come.
