Default Motor/ESC recommendation for F1 car

I have a Kyosho Williams FW14 F1 1/8 scale electric RC vehicle and would like to convert it to a Brushlesss setup to get more speed

Currently I have two brushed motors in there. I know the receiver and ESC are old and I will probably need to upgrade those as well

I am not completely familiar with the latest technology and was wondering if anyone could offer a Recommendation on

motor rating? Would I even need two motors with the current technology?

If cost is prohibitive, then I can put a dual motor ESC and one motor. Then add the second motor

later when I have more money.

I have a Hobbywing ESC in my other RC vehicle so would like to stay with that brand.

I have two new 2S 7.4V LiPo batteries and would like to use them to start. Then. if necessary, I can upgrade to higher cell LiPo's later
