3.radio/receiver? . doesnt have to be fancy but just work

4. tires and also ideas on tire wear please and how many i will need for a race day we have no control tire but we have a recommended tire and its the
Schumacher Mini Spikes in Yellow compound on the rear with medium Foam inserts. Schumacher P/N U6558 and U6734. On the front use Schumacher Cut Staggers in Yellow Compound, Schumacher P/N U6770.

Hi mate in answer to some of your questions

Have you decided which car you will be getting

1 Hobbywing quicrun esc is fine make sure you get the 10bl120 as for motor have a look at speed passion or ruddog price from £36-£53 which will be a better motor then the quicrun

2 servo savox 1258 is very popular at about £48 and will do you fine ( I run one in my car)

3 radio will you be running sticks or wheel

Hope this helps a little bit

If going with Schumacher I would go with the laydown mate also for radio this would do you perfectly unless you wanted to spend more

The father could be getting a buggy aswell it's probably better to get 2 identical cars right? Focus on mastering that one car together rather than 2 different types and set ups

What about tires do they wear out fast or will one set do me a while 🤔 I have heard mixed reports on this.

If you are both beginners, identical buggies will probably not be a bad idea. TBH i'd be looking for identical everything, for simplicity and availability of spares (you'll only need one set instead of two) plus you only have to learn one car/radio/ESC/pinion set up.

What car do they run at the club? You'll probably find that one is more popular than all the others, so it'll be easier to get hold of emergency spares and set up tips etc.
