Go with the 2.0 because it is a better racer and has the better radio.They are way cheaper than 799$.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ed-Starter-Box 100 bucks cheaper.

Without a doubt, go with the 2.0 RTR! The 2.0 RTR is one of, if not the best RTR buggy on the market and it is very, very durable! It is also very easy to upgrade it to a full 2.0 race roller.

The Losi 810 seems to be a great beginner car for the price. I have not seen one, but have talked to a few Losi guys who like the car for what it is.

If you know your brother is going to get into racing and stay there then invest in the 2.0 but If your not sure and he just likes RC then I would look in to the 810.

If you think he's serious enough to want to race; then the 2.0 is the way to go.
