Pan car will be faster and easier to work on...however it will be harder to get grip on non-prepped surfaces such as roads and such. TC while not as fast will be much easier to get grip so it will be easier to go fast.

Get a shaft drive tourer for playing on the road. THe shaft provides a sesaled drive train so you don't get it full of gunk, and will also help if you're laying down major power. Something like a Tamiya TB03 or older Associated TC4 if you can find one.
A pan car will be shite unless it's smooth clean asphalt. They don't like bumps, but are super fast. You'd need osmething like a prepared track or airport runway for serious runs with a pan car

If you know how to drive a RWD car then that would be the best option. In other words, get a TC chassis and convert it into RWD for the speed runs. This way you could go faster than a regular AWD because there's less drivetrain losses. A chassis with a sealed gearbox is preferred but not necessary. Also get a chassis that allows a wide selection of gearing options.

I'm gonna be building another custom Tamiya RWD TA03R using a double deck graphite chassis for speed runs. Haven't decided what motor/gearing/battery to use yet. The sealed gearbox in a TA03 is pretty tough. I've been using a 6000kv motor + 3S LiPo and the gears show little to no wear.
