For $150 you might get a cheap Red Cat, but don't expect durability, water proof, or fast.

For $150 you won't even get a base car. A cheap Dominus is going to run you $199. And that's one step above toy grade.

Trust me, when it comes to RC cars these days, $150 aint gonna get you much at all. You really have to spend around $250-$300 to get a decent car. A Traxxas slash 4x4 is around $300 and they are very, very good for their price.
