Tamiya retro assembly kit cars will nearly always come with a silver can brushed motor and often, an ESC, although there are a few exceptions.

To bring your Tamiya kit car up to a driving spec you need to also purchase a transmitter & receiver, a steering servo, a battery and a charger. 

It is usually best to purchase these items when the instruction manual calls for the steering servo in the build.
