I would recommend an electric to start. Nitro can be touchy The new batteries and motors are incredible. What do you want to run?
On -Road, Off-Road. Do you plan on racing? We need to know to point you in the right direction.

I think it's hard to recommend a short course without this question below answered.

Perhaps the TS has a formula 1 car in mind, or is totally fond of buggies. We just don't know yet...

I think traxxas slash 2wd is a good electric rc car for beginners and Slayer Pro 4x4 is good nitro rc car....

All of those are great options but most importantly pick what you like and what you are interested in, they all tend to get upgraded and faster over time.

You should go with the electric one in the start after gaining some experience and have some control then go for nitro cause nitro is difficult to control..

Nitro isn't more difficult to control, but it is much more finnicky to keep running properly.
