Default What 1/10 Car to get?

I'm totally new to 1/10 racing, i'd like a competitive used car without spending too much until I know I like it. I'll definitely want a starter box too, unless the 10244 I own will work. I have a 4PL with an extra Rx ready, and lots of experience with nitro and building. The Club gave me this list of cars, but I'm open to anything.

XRay NT1 (most popular)
Serpent 733 (most popular)
Serpent 720 (most popular)
Serpent 710
Serpent 705

Although I have raced Serpent cars in the past I would say Team Magic G4 series. Spares can be obtained directly from www.rcshopping.com

From serpent i would say serpent 720. The car has very good handling and is very reliable and durable, so its good for beginners. Also xray nt1 is a very good choice, good handling car and superior quality. I dont ever used a tm but probably is
a good choice too. 710 or 705 are too old, try something newer.
