    I'm looking for a good electric onroad starter car. I have some expirience with r/c cars. I have a Duratrax Evader ST and have had it a while, so I don't want a three-year old starter car. I can handle some speed.

    I like nitro a lot but the mess from all the gas and oils is too much. If there was less of a mess I would get a nitro the minute I got enough money.

    I like all of those but is there anything that is cheaper? I don't want to spend $299 on a car that i find that I don't like.

    HPI Sprint or Traxxas 4-Tec, both are lower end race cars, but racable.

    is that one electric? If is is, It would take a while for me to get $150, so you might want to try somewhere else if you want it sold quicker.
