If I recall correctly, I believe the touring motors put out more low end grunt than the offroad cousins? If that is the case, with a 2wd buggy and a hot motor, you will be fighting wheelspin issues.

Then again, you could always play with spring and brush combos.

I personally would look at an offroad styled motor if you don't really want to do all that.

As for which to go with, I would say any of the motors that have really long brushless and are not known to get hung brush issues are good.

Depends on how much wheel time you have behind that B4. If you're just starting out, go with a stock 27 turn motor and work your way up. To answer your question, yes an Orion 12x2 will work well in the B4.

I've seen people run the touring version in 2wd. I'd just stick with the standard Orion V2 Revolution 12x2.
