What have you raced before? Any offroad or anything else?

I would caution against going right to high speed brushless or mod. It might be a better idea to start with stock racing or maybe 19turn. Stock is still pretty fast and it is a good place to improve your basic driving skills before moving up.

You are right on the cusp of the new Brushless systems. Sure Hacker and others make fast ones, but Novak is very common and the 5800 system is great. ...But, Novak and LRP are coming out with their new systems and the ESC in the systems can run normal brushed motors too. I'd do some research in those, since the verdict is still coming out.
