Default What car is right for me

Hey guys, I have been driving rc cars off and on for about two years and i finally think it is time to upgrade to a new car. I want a kit but am slightly limited on my budget so nothing insanely expensive. What cars would you recommend for someone who is just getting into the on-road rc car world? Any help would be greatly appreciated

I was looking at the following cars
-Xray T2R raycer
-Xray M18 pro
-JRX-S Type R Sedan

What other cars would you guys recommend?

X ray and losi both make great cars how I would work it out is three things the first is to go to the track or club check out who is racing these cars and ask them on what they are like and the problems they might have.
The second thing find out on parts and after market hot up parts are easy to get, some RC manufactures can sell you the car easy but you cant get any parts for them.
The third thing check the car if it is user friendly some cars look good but are a bloody nightmare to work on especialy replacing belts and spur gears.
I hope this will help you good luck Brett.

If you want a kit, I would recommend a Tamiya TA05. I have had mine about a month and love it. I went brushless and lipo on it, and like it even more. Hugs the road like the tires were made of glue.
