Beginner - What do you think?

Hi, my just 11-year-old son is interested in rc cars. He's had electric types for several years now and wants to move up to the nitro cars. These seems a bit extravagant to me, unless he's planning to get into racing. What do you think? Is he too young to start racing? Are the nitro's more for an older crowd? Does this group have activities and events for his age group?

Karen, I just replied to your email, I am sure you will get some feed back from the board too.

There's a gentleman who runs with us who has a 5 year old son who drives with us grown ups and he does good!

11 years old is perfect! Old enough to understand tuning the engines and such.

He's better off starting with a Ready to Run car, such as a Nitro TC3 or HPI car.
