Default Diecast to RC

I am quite new to RC and really want to make it a long term hobby. I've began on a project whereby i convert a diecast model scale 1:24 into an RC car. However since i'm a beginner i'm not too sure how abouts to go doing it. So i need some help from you guys Would be great if u guys can give me a list of what i need (motor, servo, esc) and where to get them. Thanks

Diecast bodies are very heavy compared to abs or lexan bodies. Also you need to make a steering link to the wheels.
