New to the hobby, could anyone give some advice?

Hi guys. I've recently got into RC and thought it would be a cool journey to build an RC car over the summer and learn some things about electronics.

I purchased the shell of a 1/10 HPI M3 GT2 E92 which was painted orange. I think cutting out the wheel wells and applying the decals will be my next step.
Here's a link to how the shell looks like, new (had trouble uploading an image)

So what I've got is that I need to mate the shell with a 1/10 scale rolling chassis, then complete the project by purchasing the wheels, transmitter, reciever, servo, battery, motor, etc. I'm really not sure what to do next, any advice? Would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

that will fit most 1/10 on road cars, tourings cars, and drift cars, but one thing I have found is hpi makes there bodies fit there chassis cars the best so maybe you want a sprint 2 or RS4 chassis
