For a kid starting out you can't beat the slash4x4 due to it being cheap (get one used and save 50%) and parts availability is usually excellent. if you have a local hobby shop, see what they have/recommend - most of them have almost every part for a handful of traxxas vehicles.
Later if he wants to actually complete he may have to get something else (like an SCTE- which is a better vehicle, but less parts availability depending on your location), but the slash is great to fool around with to see if he's really interested in the hobby at least.
Or better yet, you could get him the slash, and the SCTE for you. :-)
