You should go to your local track and look around at what is being driven. While there ask questions. I would also definitely find out your driving style is and work from there to find out what buggy or truggy to get into.

try one with the most support of parts from ur LHS.. dat'll help a lot. if support is abt the same, get from the friendliest guy.. learning curve is a lot steeper than electric, so it really helps if u can hv the shop owner to help u in the running.in/tuning of the engine

hope dat helps
