Go to your local track and ask around, see what people are running to get an idea about support at the track. Then go to a LHS and see what manufacturer they support. Then out of these cars choose the one which you think you would prefer to drive. Top level touring cars are all evenly matched.

Go with what ford_racing said. You WILL break parts running onroad and parts availability is a big thing to consider.

Why not give the 10 year-old the XXXs and use the Pro 4? There still is parts support and unless you are part of the top 1% of RC drivers the car will perform just as well as any of the new cars on the market. Spend the money on batteries or a really good charger - or a better radio system. Something that you can transfer from car-to-car for as long as you stay in the hobby. A shaft car will be awesome in the 540 class. With the slower speeds you're not going to have to worry about breaking the car as well.

Happy Early Birthday, I would highly recommend a Tamiya TRF415MSX, is does not need to be an MRE, or new MSXX chassis. A used TRF415MSX is an excellent 1/10 tourer. Good Luck.

Oh please!! Forget local parts support. We're all here on the Internet aren't we??? Parts support is as convenient as your doorstep via the UPS man. Besides, any of you out there go to your local track without having any spares with you?? I think not.

My suggestion for a car is any of the top level major names.

I have an XRay T2 and if you ask me what I would want for my next car/major expediture ($350+) it would the be Losi JRXS-R. Only because its not the same old - same old battery on one side with motor and elect. on the other. The JRXS-R is different and after the first car, I think they may have refined all the bugs out of their design.

But that is for me. What whistles and bells turn you on is up to you and don't worry about parts support, there's plenty out there for any one of them.
