You should probably go with a TC first, before moving up to a 1/12th scale. Try a TC4 or XXX-S. They are both reliable, sturdy, and parts are abundant if you're in the U.S.

Do you need RTR, or do you have electronics? Either way, you will be at or under $250. For example, at Tower Hobbies, the TC4 Team Kit (just car, no electronics) sells for $204.99, and the RTR sells for $239.99.
