Whitch is better if im building a track car.. ac or dc motor?
The question is too open-ended. People always ask these types of questions, and invariably get a million (obvious exaggeration) different answers.

To even consider the question, you have to provide (at least) some basic information. What type of vehicle will you be racing, what type of venues, etc? If you're racing compact sedans with small four cylinder engines, maybe an AC motor would be great. If you're competing against large V8s, you might need the torque of a series DC to not get obliterated on the straights. I'm over-simplifying to make a point.
