If this is your first RC car or on-road car, i wouldn't recommend it. Since there a lot of technical details that need to be learn. But if you do have technical knowledge from the off-road, then you shldn't have any problem building nor setting up the car. You need a lot of patience with it and willing to absorb the technical "know-how" as u go along building this car. Check with your local guys what they are running mostly. It would be a problem to be different if u can't get help with anyone running the same car. Any car u get is good, its the matter of controlling it.
As to what motor is best, that is probably anything you like and able to control the power. Do check out with your local club race and see what motor they are using. To have the same motor as what most of the local guys are running will be easy for u if u need some assistance. If you were to ask poeple in here, you could get 10 different answer with 10 different opinion. Each person are bias to what motor they are using.
As for parts, try to get close of a friends who are a sponsor driver from which ever car they are driving or you intent to get. These people usually get good mark down price. Here in Austin, TX, i have no problem getting serpent parts as i myself get good deal on parts on someone i know.
Or you can just order online.
