it is a mistake to give a 2 year old a large scale RC. it will be broken.
it's also a mistake to buy a brand that does not have an actual importer that's established and keeps parts inventory.
I've played the cheap chinese rc car game, and you'll not be happy when nitrorcx doesn't have parts in stock for months because they're waiting on a container, so you have to order from ebay or seomthing and it ships from china.
stick with a name brand with US based parts inventory from a reputable dealer.
redcat is as bargain basement as I would go.
you can always order redcat parts from tower hobbies and have them in a few days.
