Your best bet is to go to your local track / hobby shop and see what most people run or what car has good parts support. The RTR Losi seems like a nice car and can be decently fast out of the box but I would have to say, to start out with a TC3. There are many new and used cars out there and the parts support is usually pretty good anywhere.

someone recommended the Losi XXX-S II to me too and i got it and i havnt been disappointed yet.

if your anything like me your really inexperinced and will run in to alot of things. This car goes fast enough to make you happy but not fast enough to cause any real damage to the car when it hits something.
