I would go with the flux tvps, 2 left side, to lower the center of gravity which will allow for better handling

As far as tvps, id go with the ti ones but how thick are they. You might be better off with the FLM ones you have

Honestly, I think that my combo (FLM Ext LCG, Dirt Bonz with zero offset, Big Bores set where the arms are almost parallel) would handle real good on a track.  Course I would have it set up where it was bottoming out alot, to keep the bounce down.

Engine,

If milage makes a difference in the mains, then whatever engine gets  the most runtime.  I always hear about runtime killing high horspower in the end.

As llkoolskillit said the two left flux chassis plate are the way to go if you are racing.
Heres some pics of them on my truck.
They are really cheap on ebay. They are one of the best things I have done to my race truck.

Niether the flm or hcr ones you have are lcg. The ti ones will be lighter. The aluminum ones will be stronger.

If you are racing and don't want to mod the flux plates I would go with the ti plates.
If you are using the s-25 motor you will want that truck as light as possible.
It looks like you have a lightweight wheel and tire set up.
