Questions?? on-road parking lot advice

A few friends of mine and myself are going to start racing 1/10 scale on-road among ourselves. We will be running on a nice concrete parking lot. We all have a bunch of off-road experience/gear, but not much on-road. We will be running brushless/lipo setups since have have a bunch of motors/batteries from 1/10th scale buggies and trucks.

I've been doing some research into inexpensive (<$200) 4wd touring cars, and I'm leaning towards the ofna jl-10e. Are there any other cars we should be looking at?

Thanks,
michael

Tamiya,HPI make some good starter cars. See what your local hobby shop supports so parts wont be an issue.

In my opinion the jl10 is a great bang for buck car, fit and finish leaves a little to be desired but even so it handles really well. For a better fit and finish and more option parts availability check out the tamiya ta-05 ifs.

JL10, TA05 and HOT BODIES CYCLONE S are all great starter cars for under $200.00. But you should also consider a preowned one. There plenty of tc5's, Xray t2's and Cylones for sale in this site for under or close to your $200.00 budget.

im in a similar situation as you and your friends and i leaned towards the Team Associated TC3 and TC4, although they do have some flaws, they are very similar to the setups as our off-road vehicles and are very easy with maintenance.
