You're spoiling the kid, tx. Plus, it is dangerous to put a car with that much horsepower in a new drivers hands. You should start him off with something safe, like a Subaru Impreza base. All wheel drive, not too much power. You got to bring him along gradually.

We like speed and control. Couple years back I got a large slot car track. We now find ourselves tweaking the cars to gain speed over the other.

We have spent a huge amount of time at the track in our study.

My Daughter & I have the TCR TOTAL CONTROL RACING track with the
steering wheel so we have the option to change lanes at any time . We
actually have 2 sets to make the track bigger . It's been in storage since
we moved , I need to pull it out . there's even a jam car that goes around
you have to avoid .
