This chassis is a roller only with no body. It comes with the pictured wheels/tires. Its a countersteer setup out of the box with rear overdrive. You'll need all your own electronics and body. You can go from there with upgrades on the chassis itself. 3racing has lots of hopups.
As for being a noob, don't worry about it. For some reason it seems that the on road community doesn't really want new people to join it because they are reluctant to help noobs. I'm just getting started with onroad myself, but I've been doing offroad for a long time. If you want to have some serious fun with RC, you should get an offroad vehicle that you can jump and will be usable on more surfaces than just smooth stuff. HPI, Associated, Losi, and Durango all make decent Ready to Run kits that you can use.
