If you are new to driving/racing you want a fairly gentle motor, don't tempted to get a real fast one yet. Suggest getting a 13.5T or 10.5, plenty of motor for a 2WD learner. Make does not matter, take your pick, any sensored will work. As you gain experience and speed you can get a faster motor, around a 8.5 or a 7.5 is about right for 2WD depending on the track, local racers will be able to advise.

Lipos, you want around 4500mAh capacity and no less than 45/50c, again make is not important.

The only other thing you might want to consider is if you are going to race in BRCA run events you will need batteries and motors from the approved list.

Good advise from cutting here.. most beginners in 2wd buggy end up with a vastly overpowered car (myself included). Ran an 8.5 indoors at Caldicot on Friday and would have beeen as quick with a 13.5 I reckon
