Unless it's a dedicated RC track...and very clean, 48p is the way to go. Every time I use 64p in a parking lot, I end up tearing up my nice 64p stuff with little tiny rocks.

64 pitch is smooth and silent compared to 48 pitch but wouldnt recommend 64 if running in a parking lot or dirty dusty tracks.
48 is great for messing around and parking lot racing.
Also if going brushless would recommend 48 pitch jsut for strength.

48, 64 is a pain to mesh right and you can always get the right ratio with 48 anyway.

64dp also has better tunabilty to the gear ratio or rollout you want

With a 540 motor, the extra tunability of the 64P could be very helpful. I have used 64P for on-road racing for years without durability problems.
