this is just a quick rundown using Team Associated stuff, this is my brand of choice, thats why i went with them, and i just put the 13.5 motor there, im not sure of your driving skill but the 17.5 is the same price.
Hope this helps.

There are numerous good cars out there at the moment but as most would say, go with the one with the most part availability from you local hobby shop. Aslo go for what the racers at the track drive if you decide to race because it makes setup/advice/help a bit easier if you have the same ride. I would say Xray but thats because i have one.

Agreed. For bashing or racing, find out what inventory your local hobby shop or track actually replenishes. Then consider durability, performance, and price. If you go with a vehicle that's not supported then you'll have to stock up on parts if you don't want your day of racing to end early. Consider purchasing a second kit up front so you'll at least have a backup of every part.
