The associated sc10 is a great truck that is considered by most to be the best racer but the hpi blitz and kyosho ultima are also popular, the traxxas slash is a good tough basher but is to top heavy for serious racing. Ofna which is a very good company also makes a short course truck but I don't know if they're good racers or not. Make sure your lipo's have a high enough c rating for whatever motor you use.

For racing I would suggest  2wd: AE SC10FT or Losi 22SCT   4wd: Tekno  However, if you plan on running 2wd mod class or 4wd, your lipo's don't have enough amps. You need to go with 50C and above.
