HPI racing cars are excellent. I bought an HPI RS4 mini electric car. This is a 1/12 scale, 4 wheel drive, electric rc car. 

This car was capable of reaching speeds close to 40 mph, and despite numerous crashes, no parts of the car broke. With my personal experience owning an HPI car, I can say that HPI cars = speed + reliability + fun.

HPI RC Radio Controlled Cars

HPI racing is also well known for producing realistic looking remote control touring cars. The body shells and mag wheels are excellent. 

For beginners, HPI produces Ready-to-Run (RTR) car kits. These rc cars are already assembled and are perfect for beginners.
