Either a XXX-S or TC3 or 4. Parts are easy to come by, and the TC3 and 4 have more hop-ups then you'll ever need.

For a basher TT01 from tamiya. Get one that come with the speedo too and they're just about 100$. You can tune it for on road racing and still be competitive up to stock class. The only hopup you really need straight away is a centre shaft. They vary from a few bucks to about 10$ (ebay) depending on whether you choose Tamiya or after market.

What about a TB03 then? same chassis, but shaft drive. The stock Ta05 copes ok with stones and such, I test mine on the street outside my house.

tc3 or tc4 You can find them everywhere used for cheap, there pretty durable for an onroad car, and parts are cheap.

Frankly, do yourself a favor and avoid that F103 GT, especially if you're not sure where you are going to run it. Mine has eaten spur gears every time I ran it on anything else than carpet or clean asphalt - and I always run on a proper racetrack. Plus, the rear wheel drive makes it very frustrating on low grip for a beginner - basically does donuts every time you hit the throttle hard.

Take the other guys advice and go for 4 wheel drive and enclosed transmission.

The hpi sprint 2 or the hotbodies cyclone s are two go examples of inexpensive models. You can use them for drifting road racing or drag racing. Just put in a mamba max with 5700 motor or the mamba max pro for road racing and you're good to go.

Not sure if you understood or not. TT01 is a shaft drive as well. So is TB01. And there's plenty more. You need to actually look at these cars for yourself (at least on teh web), not expect a decision to be taken for you here. You're going to drive the car, not us.
