TC3 RTR or XXX-S RTR are good choices to start with.

there are quite a few good kits. when deciding what to get you should try to narrow somethings down. do you want onroad, or offroad? do you just to play or race? any scale preference? with out those questions answered, your list is going to get serious long!

but just to add my other cent, get a kit if you can.

I would get a Team Losi XXX-S it is a great car I love it easy to work on, well designed, fast car. I saw someone sugest a Traxxas 4 tec for a car...... just my thought but I wouldn't even race a 4 tec anyway feel free to ask any questions check out the xxx-s thread everyone would love to help you there
