My Skip Barber instructor said the next step up from a shifter is an Indy Car.  So yes, starting in a shifter is a bad idea.  The only people I’ve seen do really well had substantial experience in some other form of racing, e.g., Moto-X or something similar.  The LO206 suggestion is great advice if you can race it in your area.
