What are some good options for a beginner's RC crawler? Bennett wants an RC car for his birthday, and I'd rather not buy him something from Walmart that will break in the first week...

I have an SCX10 and a few 2S lipo batteries if that sways the decision.

Stopped by the local hobby shopped and played around with an SCX24. Bennett rolled it twice in like 15 seconds. That's probably top of the list unless someone else has some input.

An older model SCX10 like yours, or a TRX4 sport would be a great option. Put some wider tires on it that give it some cushion.
I had also thought about gearing mine back down to something slower and letting him have it, and getting something else for me... but mine is pretty rough.

We got a trx-4 last year for my son's birthday and he has beat the crap out of it. He has toasted a motor and i steering servo already on it and i think he striped the steering arm out on it last weeked but i have not had time to take it apart yet.
