For the radio he might wanna go with a flysky gt3b instead because hes a beginner and it's cheap. It has model memory and tons of different functions

Traxxas Stampede
HPI Jumpshot MT
ARRMA Granite

All 3 can be had in brushed versions very cheap and can take a BEATING. I have 2 Stampede's(4x4 and a VXL) and both have been amazing. I also picked up an ARRMA Raider Mega for $100 with a Tower Hobbies discount and free shipping and it has been fantastic. Its not a race buggy but it is plenty fun when i dont really care what happens to it.
HPI has been getting back into the game and I have heard great things about the Jumpshot line. Might be worth looking at for the price - $200.

Stampede and most of the HPI flux vehicles seem to be pretty tough. The revised GT3C is a nice budget radio.

I don’t know if it’s the best or not, but I’d suggest the slash 4x4 with an LCG chassis. They are great for bashing around, and if they decide they want to give racing a try, they can run them on a track as well.

I picked one up for my son, and he has yet to break it, despite his attempts to.
