Depends on how much you are going to pay for the esc and the motors that can be used with it, from memory it'll basically only handle the basic 540 brushed motors.
The standard brushed motor will do fine to let you get used to the car, but if you want something with a bit more power and brushed you'd be better at looking at a esc that can handle more powerful brushed motors.
For batteries if you just want some cheap 2s lipo's to practice and drift check out where you can get a 4000mah 2s lipo for around $30 Aus.
