Default Decent Electric RC Cars for a complete beginner??

Hi, I wanna get into RC cars and want to get one for X-mas. I would prefer it to be less then 100$ but I guess 150$ is my max. I want it to be electric and a good starting car considering I know NOTHINGGGG about RC cars. Also could you recommend some brand and other things like that. Also I would prefer it to be based on a real car I don't want something like a monster truck or whatever. Thanks and happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks!
Do you know about how fast it will go and how durable it is?
Also, learning that this isn't the cheapest hobby to get into I expanded by budget a little and found a few other cars I liked. Check them out and please let me know if those are or are not good brands or choices.

Yea I like a lot of those.
Also on the one you recommended me how do I install the radio?
And does the battery come with a charger or do you buy that separately.

Hey guys I am new to this rc thing and was wondering if anyone could tell me like what kind of rc car is best for drifting, modifications, and durability. I was looking at either the tamiya or hpi. I want to build one. My budget is $300 for everything. I don't really know the differences between them or anything, but if anyone could tell me exactly what i need I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

RTR RC Drift car HSP Flying Fish, is electric powered and perfect for indoor or outdoor operation and good for beginners too. Based on a popular and durable operation electric car, this model will give you much pleasure.

If you're looking for a general all around electric rc car then a simple 2-wheel drive Exceed RC Sunfire Buggy type is a very good choice, because these can be driven on and off road, whereas something like a model touring car will limit you to only driving on the smoothest of surfaces.


Regards.
Andy.

In my suggestion, I like the Tamiya kits, especially for a beginner. They all include ESCs so you don't have to worry about that, and they'll teach you the basics of our hobby. And you have to built them.
