Good RC Truck for a kid

Hey guys. I'm just looking for a little input on a RC Truck for my 3 year old boy. It's probably not even in the "hobby class". But the little guy wants to do what the big guys do.. Right ?

10 year old - older stampede
12 year old - older slash
GF - Running my new Stampede 4X4 VXL
DAD - new summit. OMG

I bought a New Bright for the 3 year old. It is ALMOST good. The controller is perfect size. Looks cool. Good clearance for yard.. Doesn't turn worth a DAM, range is spotty at best. And there seems to be about a .5 second delay in throttle response.

Anyone have any other options? Are there any better New Brights ?

Check out the Redcat Volcano EPX! They're pretty good for the price. Runs about 20mph, comes with a nice 2.4Ghz remote, 27T brushed motor, 1800mah battery, everything you need to start running. I think it's great for beginners. There's also a brushless version(EPX Pro) as well as the nitro version(S30) if he prefers the extra power and speed

Rustler and Stampede are good for kids, you can buy anyone but do not spend big money for a kid.

You won't go wrong with these two chassis You can find them used for a very reasonable price and a ton of after market parts and great parts support.

You can find a wide variety of suitable options at A Main Hobbies. They just launched a huge Memorial Day sale on their Facebook page.
