Sorry but your probably better off waiting till you can afford more.

If you buy cheap brand you will probably get frustrated fixing it every time you drive it.

at that price i dont think youll get a durable truggy, and parts will be hard to find, but you could save up another 100 and get a great buggy, for example Ofna Picco-$289

True but from what I read from a UK site that reviews tech products after VAT, duties, and other lovely charges its pretty close to USD (the site always makes fun of that too)

for comparison I looked at a UK based shop(grabbed 1st google had listed) a Tamiya Gravel hound (used it cause it was the 1st thing I could find listed on both) is listed at £114.99, on tower the same RC is listed at $129USD.
If you run towers price through a currency convector it comes out to £85 from a straight up USD to brittish pound conversion. If you do the reverse the UK hobby shop is charging the equivalent of $200 USD for the gravel hound.

In all truth making a recommendation for the OPs price range will be hard without knowing whats readily available over there
but yes agree you might want to save up some more, and get a more robust rig from Ho Boa or Hong Nor.

Hong Nor X1 CRT RTR £334.99 http://www.mbmodeltek.co.uk/hong-nor...-rtr-i339.html
I have a X1 buggy and its built VERY well for the cash.

BTW thats off a fast google search you might be able to find it cheaper

Since you are posting pricing in pounds, find Peter Edern at Answer RC in the UK and tell him that Mike Mazza said for you to contact him for help with a car. He is a rep for a few different lines over there and should be able to point you in the right direction.

By the time you get something shipped from over here, that will crush your purchasing power on a limited budget.

Hope it helps.
