Here's a nice entry level (hobby grade, NOT toy grade) Sedan to start with:
HPI Sprint 2 Sport RTR w/1969 Camaro Body & TF-40 2.4GHz Radio System [HPI106133] | RC Cars & Trucks - A Main Hobbies
You could use the stock body and wheels for bashing and get the 300C body and some other wheels/tires for show. I've yet to find a properly sized wheel/tire for it. I think HPI make some pretty big wheels for 1/10 sedan, but only one style I think.
The wheels/tire on mine are the HPI "Vintage" stuff. Not quite big enough, but close. So you could get that stuff locally or Amainhobbies, Towerhobbies, etc. If you have a local RC hobby store, see what they have support for. Racers are nuts, we have about $1500 in a little toy car.
You could easily have $400-$500 in a nice basher sedan. If you get hooked on RC you will not have any money left!
I could get and paint a 300C body for you for about $65, maybe $70 shipped to NJ. Then it will need to be mounted on your chassis. Most use body posts that come through the body with body clips. I used homemade posts with threaded holes and "surface matched" tops and cap screws for a cleaner look. If you've never mounted a body before, you may want to get some help from a local racer or hobby shop. It's hard to get it perfect. Although if you use the HPI sprint chassis, the 300C body has dimples that may line up the that chassis's body posts.
