You have them already listed.    Cheapest is first most expensive is last. 

On the same note.   Slowest is the cheapest.   Fastest is the most expensive.

Seriously.    Go to a race.   Watch the mowers.    Have a budget in mind then talk to the racers. 

That will help you the most.

As long as it is compatable with the new style turbo encabulator, you will be fine.
