Hi ,

The only real option if you want to start racing at that price is either the Tamiya M-05 “mini” chassis or a TT-02 ( not the R )
Either of these options could be setup for club racing with limited mods for around $300

Both awesome fun and cheap to maintain as tyres , mods etc are all restricted

Talk to someone like Stephen at Speedi Models ( depending on where you are)

Im just getting back into RC Cars & I just bought a TT02.
Its a bit crude, but TT's are almost unbreakable, easy to setup. There is nothing to adjust so you wont need
to buy camber gauges & setup stations etc. The RC drifters like em so they hold their value.
It comes with a body, brushed motor & an esc. Newer TT02's have a ESC that does brushed & brushless, that the one to get.
You will still need : servo , battery , radio gear & wheels. And bearings :roll: So add another $100 at least
** also , no point getting a TT02 if your local RC club doesnt race them.

The cheaper kits , Cheap chinese clones arnt the bargain they seem at first.
Just poor quality, too much soft plastic or soft metal, too many expensive upgrades needed. Just could lead to disappointment (Ive bought a couple in the past) . They initially seem like a good price , but .....
In comparison with my Xray that I sold for well under $200 back when....
Used RC can be a bargain, but not alot 4sale at the mo.

If you must, hobbyking sell some very cheap kits. Re-branded Sakura & rebranded TeamC
Chances are , you'll need to buy upgraded parts , though some have raced them as is.
