Default 1/10 On road Noob

Hey guys,I am admittedly an on road noob, my experience is mainly Largescales. I have decided to get an onroad car for weekday running and ease of maintenance. It will be an asphalt/concrete only car that will mainly be doing higher speed runs and some heads up racing with friends. I purchased an Ofna JL-10e and have a few questions. I have an RX, Servo and batteries already.So here goes
What body should I get 190mm or 200mm?
I was thinking of getting a Mamba Max Pro w/5700kv motor on a 3s 5000mah 20c/30c lipo. That too much? Not enough? Would a hobbywing 60a esc be sufficient? Id like to have decent topend but I dont want to fry anything either.

Thanks again for taking the time to answer. I REALLY appreciate any input you guys may have.

I'd get a 200mm. Gives you more flexibility to try different offset wheels. A 5700kv on 3s would be too much, unless you're just after speed runs. Even a 5700 on 2s can be a handful.

How does the OFNA JL-10e look? I've looked at these online and seem like a great deal. If I was after another touring car I'd maybe pick one up.
