I'm assuming you mean touring car.

for 17.5, motors from Trinity and Thunderpower seem to be the most competitive in my mind. Keep in mind the D3.5 is no longer ROAR legal. Check with your clubs Standing on that first.

ESC...I like Hobbywing. the Extreme stock would be a good choice, and for about $70 on Falcon Sekido, its a good value. However, any of the usual suspects will do - LRP, Tekin, Speedpassion.

Bodies... Most popular are Protoform Mazdaspeed 6, and LTCR.

Hope this helps...!

Pick a class first, that is run at your club, then think about buying gear.

I'm new also( to electric carpet tc ) I purchased based on what the fastest guys at my track were using because I figured they had most experience and can answer most of my questions.. IMO the ltcr is the better of the 2, I started with the speed 6 and for some reason couldn't control it as much as the ltcr and my laps were more consistent and faster with the ltcr.

For blinky, I run the hobbywing justock and like it just fine. Shouldn't need the 120. Biggest difference might be brakes.
