For $500 and nothing second hand.... I'd say that's a tough budget and unrealisitc

To get there I'd suggest a new last-generation kit and then cheap hobbyking gear for everything else.

T5M Kit- $249
Trackstar ESC/17.5 Motor Combo - $74.25
GT2B Transmitter- $25.07
Goteck DC1511S Servo- $27.42
Turnigy 4200mah 2S2P Lipo- $38.84....
Total of $415.57 with some left over for basic tools, charger, pinion, paint etc.

It's not going to be pretty or even a good idea but if you view it all as replaceable parts then this would be a cheaper way to get into it with a quality chassis.
