    Power to weight ratio answers the question about comparative quickness.

    You're tall so you may have to stretch the cabin of whatever you make.

    Lot of these cars end up weighing more than planned. Try to make it light but strong. Quite a challenge.

    I agree Gene, power to weight & making sure it handles well ( steering geometry, front & rear wheel set ups.), there's no point just going fast in a straight line.
