Everybody is right on, a 12yr old kid will have a tough time with nitro engines. I just bought a RC10GT for 300 on e-bay, after tuning the crap out of the motor and getting the bugs out (that means it stopped breaking) I realize I'll never go back to electric ever. It's that good. But if you don't have the patience or you just don't know what your missing, go electric. E-bay is where you want to go, get something that comes with everything and it'll probably be put together already. I got some T-maxx and RC10GT pics on my homepage if your interested.

Default I've got one

I've got a Kyosho Sandmaster that's a few years old. I haven't driven it for a while but it runs great. It's not in perfect shape but the price is right and is a blast to drive. Drop me an email if you would like more information!

Default R/C Nitro Boat

I also have a Traxxas Nitro Vee as well complete! I haven't used it in a while and need to get it out of the basement!! I'm sure the prices are very good for both the R/C car and the boat!

please...don't a 12 year old short...i was kick old mens asses at 12 in both car and boat racing...i was poping my own hull designs in the r/c boat arena at 12....i think it's great to get kids involved in it....they learn so much from it!!!!! now my toys are just bigger...and i ended up in ford powertrain development.

nitro....http://www.towerhobby.com/listings/cat-cat-c.html

get a RTR deal....they r rith there at 300.

i've been out of it for a bit and my stuff is dated....but i was just out running my 1/8 rally with a pro .21 in it....it still gets the job done.

Dave 1972 - drop me an e-mail at [email protected] about that Nitro Vee. I might be interested in that. My old man keeps bugging me to hook him up with an r/c boat, although I think a 12 year old kid might be better with it.
I'll probably have to do the whole maintain it, start it, tune it, then hand him the remote deal.
