The e-maxx or e-savage will be perfect and can be slowed down to less than half speed by simply wireing the motors in series rather than parallel.

This will slow the truck down AND give it less power. It will make it kinda lazy and get rid of the neck snapping tork and be perfect for a youngster. It can be put back in less than 30 seconds for when Dad "needs to test it out" to make sure all is ok. Another benefit is that the runtime will nearly double.

If half speed isn't slow enough then you can also drop to 1 battery with another small connector and that will again drop the speed in half.

I have a friend(single father and 3 boys )(wouldn't want his RC bills ) that has a five yr old with a e-savage. He also did something to slow it down like gulio mentioned though not sure what exactly. He loves it cause he say's his son "can't" break anything or hurt himself. The lil' guy lemme play for a faction of second after ALOT of coaxing, the thing did maybe 15 mph but did pop the front end up for a foot or two. Its was cute and funny to watch him try to catch his bigger brother's rustler and run it over .

Mach51 I think what your doing is awesome, there's alot of single mothers out there that have sons that don't do "GUY"/"DAD" things with them. If more people like you would step forward like this the world would be alot better of a place big-time ^5
