My Redline was slow, and there's one other driver using one and he's slow all other are using BOSS Speed Passion or LRP.

I would go with a Tekin RS, the difference between the RS and RS Pro is motor limit (RS 5 turn Brushless, 8 turn Brushed Fwd mode, 10 turn Brushed Fwd/Rev mode) Pro no motor limit. You can also use Tekin's Hot Wire to update your ESC.

That's a loaded question - depends on the driver. Looks like you are just getting started. Recommend you go with whatever brushless motor you like (good choice with brushless). Get a good ESC - I prefer Tekin RS. Gives you a LOT of control with or without the Hotwire (recommended) and room to grow when you are ready to move up.

I wouldnt say the Tekin 17.5 is slow. Mine is fairly quick when I use it.

Something I really like with the Tekin Redline motors is they're sealed pretty well so if you run on a less than a perfectly clean track or are bashing they don't require as much maintenance as one of the motors that has openings on the can or exposed bearings. Pretty much the only maintenance that needs to be done on a Tekin motor is to pull the front off and clean and lube the front bearing and you're good to go again. I tried a Duo 2 for a short time and the amount of crud that motor collected inside in the short time was amazing.
