Default Best car for $200-250 ish??

Ok, looking to get an entry level racer. I have $200 - $250 to spend and here is the list that I have compiled:

TC5R - $199 (Team Associated site)
TA05 V2 - $210 ish (all over)
TB03 - $130 (Speedtech RC)
Mi1 - $170 (A Main Hobbies)
Sakura Zero S - $99 (HKS Hobbies)

TA06 PRO - $255 (Speedtech)
TA05 V2 R - $265 (Speedtech)
T3R - $275 (A Main)

I am thinking that spending the high end of my budget and not having to upgrade later will be best. What does everyone think? Is there a car that I have left off the list?

Thanks in advance for the help.

the Mi1 or TC5 would be my choice though the T3r wouldn't be a bad choice either. id personally buy a used chassis and save some money for spares. i don't know where your at with driving skill or what classes your gonna run it in, but you can get some nice cars used for around $150, then spend the rest on spares you will inevitably need.

TC5 was my first car. I dont have any complaints with it aside for not being optimized for lipo. but once you balance it right, handles well, its fast and its cheap to run. pretty durable too.
