Ok...so all three of those cars are good racers, out the box. All you'll need to do is build/set them up to your track and driving style.

Like these guys said....getting a car that has available parts (perferably in your area or at your club/track) would be the best choice. Yes there are a few clunkers out there, but most of the $350+ cars are ready for racing...assuming you built it correctly...no need for any extra hopups (that's why they cost so much to begin with. Your driving skills and style will dictate what makes a good car for you.
If you're on the boards alot, then get yourself a nitro truck or tank
(j/k) otherwise any car is capable in the hands of a good driver.
AS far as engines go. Here's a few:
Team Orion CRF12
