First of all since you say you are a noob, you are better off getting a complete kit, that is what we call " Plug and Play " .
That means get the Motor/Controller/Display/Throttle/PAS if wanting one/ etc from the same seller/vendor , and that all the above items plug into each other with the right plugs/connectors.
You were writing about you would like a friction drive for simplicity , however all the friction drives with the exception of one that is sold in Germany have many parts you have to put together from different sources.
The one from Germany is expensive , around $ 1,000 US or near that, don't know what that is in Euro's , but I do know you can achieve your goals for half that price.
For inexpensive plug and play systems that would work for you look into ...
1) the newest ( 48v/52v )(18 amp controller ) version of the TSDZ 02 the newest , and higher voltage versions are sold by recycles, if you look into the TSDZ thread you can find his information and allot of information on it. ( 48 volt pack is 13s , and 52 volt pack is 14s )
You can find allot of information on here , only need to read about the last 10 pages or so since there has been allot of versions, and improvements on the TSDZ 2

2) a Q128 complete system ( 201 rpm version motor) sold by BMS Battery.com
There are plenty of other options for hub motors , and even the Befang BBS02,
so you could look into those if you want.
That Turnigy SK3 motor is too fast , the KV is way too high for a easy project .
Best to just forget about that.
If you do want to still have a friction drive, Kepler is the person who has the most experience and does the best friction drive available at this time. Read his complete threads on his friction drives , especially his latest friction drive.
Kepler has said he will be back after the new year .

I found this motor in an auction on ebay.uk
"Turnigy HeliDrive SK3 Competition Brushless Motor 4956-1350KV (T600)"
Do you think it is suitable for my project?
