Default Electric 1/10 scale car

Looking for some advice. I've always been in to rc stuff like cars Helis and drones.
I'm not really on a budget but I want to get a new car that i can use on and off road and quiet quick.
Any recommendations

If going off road is plan then that removes Touring cars. Maybe a rally car. Tamiya has the xv-01. Never seen one but from reading I know a number like it.

Hpi WR8. It's been a solid vehicle, just suffered from the old hpi parts problems. That issue does look to be getting better. While it's listed as 1/8 scale it's closer to 1/10 in size. Ground clearance could be issue if going too far off road. Baseball field sand it's about as close to off road as I get with it. Won't work in any grass around me.
Kyosho has a 1/9 Rally. Bigger, giving more clearance.
Carisma also has a 1/8 rally. Though parts are still mostly available from overseas. Smaller brand but I've liked what I've owned.
Traxxas does have a rally also. It's based off the Slash.

I would probably recommend the tamiya tt02b buggies which are good on and offroad, the only downside is that it is a kit and some people don't like building them.
