the only thing i know about u is that u want a BMW body so i think for your first car we can rule out off-road ??

Let us know about your needs:
-Do u want to race?
-Do you want to use it in your home?
-Do you want to use it outside?
-Do you have access to a race track for fun or racing?
-Do you want to join a club in your area?IF so what classes of racing do they do?
-Do you want to learn about how cars work or just drive them?
-Is there noise bylaws in your area that could prevent u from using a nitro powered car?

Typically a new guy should go electric. I would prefer if everyone built there cars.IT teaches a new guy so much during the kit building process. Electric typically gets u driving sooner and learning to drive better rather then having to tune a nitro engine taking up driving time
