I would ask the other touring car guys at the track for advice however my son has no clue because he is only 8 and other other guy is always asking me for advice.
If you are just starting out in a racing level setup, a speed passion or hobby wing combo will be a good place to start. Their stuff is affordable and reliable with plenty of support here on rctech. What area are you racing? What classes are available at your local track? The most common class in the U.S. Is 17.5t no timing "blinky". It's reasonably fast but not crazy fast. Another spec class is VTA (vintage trans am). They usually run 25.5t motors. FYI the lower number of wire turns has more power output ie, less wire resistance = more power.
Hope this helps.
P.S. Take a look at the TC6 thread as you will get plenty of advice there.
