I bought my son a sc28 at 2.5 years old. He drives it in the house and is learning the basics of turning and throttle control. Pretty cool and inexpensive car to learn with. I got my first rc at 8 years old, it was a hpi rs4 mt belt driven 4wd. My dad and i built it together.

My son is 8 years old. He's a decent driver. I let him drive my Xray T4, TLR 22 4.0, and 22-4. Got him started about a year ago. He enjoys it but lack the discipline to practice more lol. He still prefer his ipad over RC.

My daughters were 3 and 5. They started with my old Grasshoppers and in a few weeks at the out door off road track they moved up to XXXT MF1's. They ran them for a few years then the Slash craze came in and they ran them for a little bit. Tried 2wd buggy but then they didn't like going to the track anymore and moved on to girly things. It was fun while it lasted.

My kid was 14 months when I got him his first nitro truggy. Seemed to have good control and would occasionally make the podium at local club races.
