There is no "ideal" setup but I can give you some helpful pointers on a reasonable solution.
The most economical solution would be to use the 1065, since it has much of the hardware you need.
My first recommendation is:
For controlling the car, use a DC motor to drive it forward, and an RC Servo to control the angle of the tires. For this you would need a 1066 and a servo. You can set up a single servo to do this by having it position a rod connecting the back side of the two tires. swinging it one way or another will turn both tires the same direction.
As for measuring the car, like we said, use an encoder on the DC motor shaft or on the tires, to measure the number of rotations. There are a number of options for measuring the direction of the wheels. Since there are analog inputs on the 1065 as well, you could use one of our sensors to do so. Perhaps attaching a potentiometer (1109) to the servo; or attach a slider (1112) to the rod connecting the two tires; or many other options probably exist as well, just remember there is only one encoder input on the 1065. Just log the encoder and sensor values along with their time and you should be able to make it work.
Again this is just my personal suggestion to give you some ideas on a low cost solution. There are likely better options if you are not limited by cost.
