Cool New To on-road and trying to decide

Hey everyone, Im new to the site and new to electric on-road.I have a few nitro off road and looking to get into on road. Im looking at either the team associated tc4 or the team losi drift-r. I may get into racing in the future but mainly just looking for something to have fun with and maybe do some drifting. Just wondering what you guys would suggest or if there is something else out there.Thanks guys

Those cars are perfect for starting out. I would also consider what your local hobby shop carries as far as parts. You don't wanna buy a car that has to have parts special ordered all the time.

Why not get a TC5, XRAY, Schumacher, Tamiya, or Losi JRX-S?
