Speedline carries Corally. you can get G3s from them.

Hi Wiley, The Kawada race held previously did organised races for 1/12th scale. However, since it ended sometime ago, there ain't many 1/12th drivers. Also, a new G3 would cost around $350-400. It's a very nice car, very smooth.Don't know much about the Kawada one though.

Don't know much about Kawada's 1/12th or even 1/12th class as a whole since I got my G3 just few months back BUT it's a blast that i'm having great time with it. They're much simpler than 1/10 TC but much more frustrating to drive if you don't have the right surface. HOBBY BUG TRACK is a good place place to play this.

i think you won't be wrong getting a KAWADA or a CORALLY. electric is indeed much cleaner than nitro and 1/12 is evenmore. You'll need few more stuffs to get started like dischargers etc. You'll also have to learn a few things to get more life out of you're electrics. You can ask anything here anyway so I guess you'll be off enjoying in no time once you get started.
