1/8 buggy is the most popular
When you find a local track near you go and ask questions see what parts are at the hobby shop that supports the track. All the rest is preference and availability in your area. Right around 2 grand is about right by the way when just starting out racing. You can go cheaper but 2 grand sneaks up awful quick. It's not a cheap hobby. My suggestion is let your fingers do the walking and go to your lhs(local hobby shop) and shoot the poo.
