I'll try and answer 2 and 4

Among the advantages claimed for angle winders and sidewinders are gyroscopic couples, torque reaction and more efficient gearing.
Sidewinders limit tyre width and minimum tyre diameter which may or may not be an issue depending on the type of car. Angle winders can help with both of those.
While angle winders are just about universal in the faster metal chassis cars (except where the rules don't allow it) the choice is much less clear cut in hard body racing.

If you want magnet traction, there is a lot to be said for adding magnets to the chassis (unless the rule prohibit it).

For circuit racing, how much motor power is useful depends a lot on how well the chassis handles and how much grip you are producing. Too much power just makes cars difficult to drive round corners so the car is slower round the lap. Of course drag racing is another story.
