What to buy for the first RC Build - TRMBs - 01-02-2019

So I have decided to get myself an RC, originally the plan was to make a replica of my BMW to bring on car shows and etc. Decided on get something serious as my friends are planning on joining me in this hobby. So here is the list of chosen chassis:

MST FMX 2.0 ( 289$ )
MST RMX s 2.0 ( 175 $ )
Overdose GALM ( 299$ )
Overdose Vacula II RS Shockless ( 379$ )
YR SPT2-D ( 270 $ )
Yokomo YD-2E Plus ( 300$ )

What do you guys think would be the best choice for me with further tuning and modifying options. Also which electrical components you would recommend. If possible please include the pricing. 

P.S. Hope its a right place to post this kind of thread.

I'm new to this aswell, looking for similar answers. What I've found so far, rcmart.com has some good deals. But on the tuning and modifications, a common answer is adjustable turnbuckles, and sliding rack steering are some common first mods from what I've found. I just ordered an MST FXX-D ifs II kit, waiting on it to come in the mail. Let me know what you find out though.
