What about started box and all the little stuff that goes with it...............for $900 ummmm IDK

I would say:


Team Losi 8 2.0 - RTR - everything you need to be competiitive. under $900 and you can buy an extra servo. Add fuel and go.

Unkown, if he has all the support equipment or not??

The Losi RTR is still going to need Lipos for the box and car, servos, and a fix for the radio plate.

Right?

Well if he gets that he will have enough money for:
Glow Igniter
Nitro Fuel
Fuel Bottle
(2) 7.2V Batteries for the Starter Box
Approved Charger(s) for receiver pack and starter box batteries

And what radio tray fix? Never had a problem with the 2.0 tray.......as long as you set your EPS correctly the tray is almost bulletproof

You are going to get alot of different answers here! I prefer AE RC8B,And as for power plant go with reedy or Nova .21+4(.28 in a buggy?) Servos go with ds8711hv Steering and ds8411 throttle.(Both are JR.) IMO

there is nothing wrong with the HB the car is fast and my second choice would be the losi rtr it comes with a good radio and a descent mill just replace the servos but im not much of a rc8 fan and yes i owned one but there would be my two to look at.
