venom has the Creeper kit,
etc. etc. etc,
Go to amain and look for the word KIT in the description of the car

Tamiya df-02 is decent at around $115(think it went up a tad since I looked) for a 4wd 1/10th buggy. With a few upgrades it can handle a BL system fine, and due to its weight it can use the lower cost 35A setups
out of the box only upgrade it needs IMO are the shocks the tamiya shocks suck ass.
There are also quite a few other tamiya kits under $200

Tamiya makes some kits that make decent trail trucks. How fast do you want to go? They make some nice scale vehicles, but they aren't great at higher speeds simply due to the scale proportions.

If you are ok with a buggy, Tower Hobbies has the Associated B4 Factory Team kit for a decent price. Fast, stable and good handling, though it's not exactly a hardcore off-roader.

Just curious, does your $200 budget include electronics or is that just for the kit?

You didn't ask which ones were good I believe you asked "Can anyone help me find an unassembled kit that I have to put together for under 200" you never asked if kit A was better than kit B. Calling people you don't know an idiot, what are you 12? Also I believe I gave you a few kits to look into and you didn't appreciate that so I will be more than happy to not reply to your POSTs on this forum.

Honestly I can see where he thought this was just another "wut shud i by" thread where the OP wants everyone to go gather information for them because either they're to stupid or lazy to go look for themselves.

Tamiya currently makes the largest selection of un-assembled kits. Associated has some "factory team" race kits and Kyosho makes some high end race kits as well. From the sounds of it, though, Tamiya is your best bet, as most of the kits by AE and Kyosho are higher end race kits which will run you over $200 for the kit. Axial also has a couple of kits, but they are also over $200.

As far as tamiya trail truck kits go for under $200, they have the cc01 chassis which is available with a Toyota FJ40, Ford Bronco, or Mercedes Unimog body.

Here's a cheaper Associated kit:

its the SC10, around $150 without electronics.

But Tamiya does have a wide selection of lower cost kits.
