Default Looking for suggestions for a novice on-road car

Greetings All. I am new to the RC world. I went to an VORRA/ROAR race in Virgina this weekend and I am hooked on the on-road nitro cars. I did not want to ask what peeps were running in the pits (aside from being rude, the guys/glas looked like there were intensely tweaking their cars for the next heats) so I will pose a similar question here.

What is a good car either 1/8 or 1/10 scale for a person that is new to nitro but would like to be competitive in VORRA (ROAR-sanctioned) races? And I'm not looking to put $1500 in a hobby car, so no I am not looking for a Mugen. lol. But something relatively good/competitive. That is easy to get parts for and handles well. I hear a lot about the Schumachers and I'm partial to Traxxas (I own a T-Maxx 2.5) but I am not limited to those.

Thanks in advance.
