Something like that, also if possible write the brand and what it is as well!

How is this for a competitive car list?

LRP Sphere ESC & X-11 5.5T Brushless Motor
Team Associated Factory Team TC5 Kit
Speedmind Team Sorex 32R Premounted Rubber Tires
Spektrum DX3.0 DSM 3CH Surface Radio System w/Servos
Team Orion Carbon Edition 3200mAh Li-Poly Battery

Give me your thoughts and maybe some suggestions on things to change in the list!

Tyres are a very crucial point, 32's are only for hot(ter) conditions, on a cool track id suggest at least 28s. It really depends on the surface of the track too though and how much grip is already on it.

The fastest car down the straight needs good tyres to be the fastest on the infield too... Grip V wear rate will always be a trade off....

It would also be worthwhile to check out the class rules at the local track(s) where you plan on racing as they may or may not allow brushless or LiPo...and could have a spec tire called out...
