Be carefull, this can be expensive just like a boat! I bought my 9 yr old son a Traxxas Rustler electric truck. I take him to a track once a week. Every time we go it costs more money on "upgrades" Now he wants to go faster (gotta love that additude) So I'll be going for a whole new truck in the future! That T-maxx is a bad a## truck! Have fun with it. It is a good hobby! I'm holding back on buying myself one though. I have enough to do working on his!
