2wd buggy will teach you throttle control and finding the fast line.

This goes along with throttle control, but 2wd will also teach you when to apply the throttle in corners to allow fast exits from turns without sliding out the rear end of the buggy . . . at least that is what I have read and heard from others.

The last time I had messed around with a 2wd buggy, I had the nasty habit of spinning it out.

Good one, I would've gone:

1/8th scale Nitro= MMA

1/10th scale electric 2wd= Fencing

1/12th scale = brain surgery
