Default Best 4wd On-Road for under $350

What in your opinion is the best 4wd on-road car.
I am planning to buy one soon.
I am going to be using a Mamba Max 7700kv system with a 2s lipo so the car has to have a tough drivetrain.
I am not looking for any thing to race so it has to be cheap($0-$350).
I already have all the electronics except the servo.
The two main cars I am looking at are the Associated TC4 or the HPI Sprint 2 Sport.
The Sprint 2 looks better than the TC4.

(It can be nitro, but it has to be fast)

There are plenty of high end good used cars out there to consider. I would think a Corally, XRAY or similar would make the best choice. More bang for the buck going used.

I don't really want to go high end because I am probably never going to race so there is no point in buying them.
Also My LHS Only has AE and HPI parts so I looking at them more.

Xray T2R Pro, brand new = $300.00

It is basically a T2 '008 without the expensive carbon fiber and some other minor changes.

TA05? Comes in under budget, so some money left over for upgrades, plus its bulletproof, and the chassis doesn't scratch up too badly.

I have a brand new T2R for sale for $265 shipped. That is a good deal.

If you are only looking at HPI and AE, and only for bashing, then why not a HotBodies Cyclone-S? It's cheap, only $165 with body or $160 without. HotBodies is under the HPI umbrella, so you should be able to get those parts.
