Question Online shop for Micro RC cars in US

Hi everybody, a couple of my friends are coming down to blore from the US. I want to purchse a couple of micro RC cars from there. They retail for 10$ each (35$ for 4) at www.mini-rc-cars.net

Wanted to know if there is some other place where i can buy them off the net? Also i thought of micro rc cars because they dont cost much and i can have fun racing with a couple of friends as they operate at 4 different frequencies.

Is it worth getting a micro RC car or shall i go in for a regular RC car? I cant afford the nitro RCs so got to go for the electric ones only.

Any other websites where i can buy it?

in bangalore there is a hobby shop on commercial street who sells them as kits. costs around 25k starting price.
can get them from abroad for around 15k.
they are pretty pretty fast.

My folks refuse to get me one! so I am gonna get myself one. but they are bloody expensive the nitro ones. But one car i saw on a site says it can reach 45mph! I am ready for the RC meet but i dont have a car still. and the ones i am buying now are also micro cars! no chance of me racing with that... those are just toys i can race around on the dining table

where did you get the cars from ICE/Scarlet? any idea how much it would cost me?
