First of all, I'm sorry that I didn't sign up to this forum sooner! It has been 30+ days since you posted this with no reply, so this may be too late but I'd personally recommend a vehicle from nitrorcx. The reason for this is because for the price you are asking, you are kindof limited but can still get a hobby grade vehicle from them RTR and still have good fun with it. As long as you are smart about it, their vehicles are durable enough for an intro level RC. If you don't believe me, check out one of my videos on my channel and see for yourself what these little vehicles can do. In this video, it is a short course truck, but they make a buggy style within the same company and price range. I hope this helps!
