Default On road for newbie

So, I have a tacon 1/14 sct, and I was thinking about getting a on road car
I was about to pull the trigger on an exceed drift king, brushed, but then the Tamiya TT02, specifically the TT02 S (Because it has oil shocks and bearings, but is the 40 buck difference worth it, or can these be got for cheaper) popped up. I really like the idea of a tt02 s because
A: It is a kit
B: It will cost the same as the drift king once I get a tx/rx
C: Seems like people say it is extremely durable
Now some notes:
I am not locked in on one of these cars, I would prefer a kit now,
I have about 200 to spend. I do have 4 2200mah 30c 2s lipos from turnigy,
Would be nice if i could use those
I would use the car for drifting and on road
no racing, just bashing
The TT02 S on rc mart has no included esc, so could someone reccomend one?
Body wise, I would enjoy something like an old mini cooper or american muscle car, does anyone know a website were I can get a lot of bodies from?
speed and strenght are nice
Am I on the right track getting the TT02 S?
What upgrades, if I get this, would I need,
I am planning on getting something like a flysky gt-2 or splurge and get a gt3 (Multi model memory)
Any other things I should consider?

for bashing a tt-02 you will eb fine but if you even have a shadow of a thought about racing dont... for an esc i always reccomend a traxxas xl-5 the best bodies are from hpi but they do not have an old mini but they have an abundance of old muscle. as for upgrades the tt-02 is fairly solid but get ball diffs you can lock them for drifting then open them back up for grip driving for a remote i reccomend a spektrum dx3c i dotn care what you hears from people who say tehey suck because between you and me most of them dont own spektrums and never did. think i covered everything oh one more thing if you can find one get a traxxas electric 4-tec a ball diff still applies

The on-road forum is pretty focused on racing, bashing is just not something we talk about.

Being the previous owner of Flysky and a Spektrum radios I really recommend against them. You're much better off getting saving a little more money and getting used or low end Futaba, Airtronics, hitech, Graupner.

As for the TT-02, it's fine for what you're looking to do and there are some upgrades which help durability.

As I recommend often to bashers/(budget) racers; buy a Sanwa MX-V radio. Excellent quality, every setting available you need and waterproof receiver. And offcourse, low price.
