I've spent almost $1500.00 on my car (0.15 motor, 2-speed box, tuned pipe, K&N filter etc...) and it's fu*kin' fast! You can get a Nitro starter kit with remote for like $450.00 I think.
Hey Empower I also buy my things from them also,Albert is a good person but I deal with Alex or Bill.Good prices and very knowledgable about the r/c scene.HPI is for the recreational racers,you must go into the Serpent/Impulses..Mugens....Team Associates to really be competitive....I clocked my Mugen MTX going 70km with the Novarossi .12 with the K&N filter,it was a blurr going past me...for the beginners electric is a better choice,but the Nitro is awesome if you know the right fuel/air mixture and the proper tweaking of the engine.

For $450.00 you get EVERYTHING except the gas and batteries. The kit is still really fast and I think now they even include bearings and a recessed skid plate too (good thing). You have a choice of bodies, but don't get discouraged if you buy one with a body you don't like.. for $40.00 you get any body (depending on wheelbase) you want... I've got 3 bodies (McLaren F1, Lancer Evo 5, Ferrari F355). They have a website to see what's available. Gas has it's disadvantages too.... It's really messy and the fuel/air mixture isn't always right.... and don't breath the fumes!

Empower did you try the HPI 3(ready to run),looks like a clean package here for a fair price.You just fuel and batteries and your ready to roll.....

Yeah!... that's the one I'm talking about. The HPI 3 "ready to run" pre-assembled kit. I didn't buy that kit, but it's perfect for a beginner or someone that doesn't want to go all-out.
