Default $250 bucks just not enough today??

Hello all!

So my son is 13 and has built a few RC cars now. First was a Grasshopper and the a T-02 platform 4wd Tamiya buggy. They were both $125 or less to see if he would like the hobby, turns out he loves it. He likes it so much he is working in a 3D printed 1:12 scale pan car at school using Onshape to print parts.

The question is what to do next? He would like a better kit and not a retro remake. Looking around online the $250 range is a tough go for off road kits, at least as far as I can see. Also, where do ya guys like to shop online? I don't have a lot local options and when I look online its always the same 4 companies. It just seems as if the gap from basic kits to the better ones is a big step compared to years ago. Ok, any ideas are welcome and the information provided is appreciated.

As a side note, we have trucks, a 4wd Traxxas Stampede and an HPI 4wd Savage gas that I did a brushless conversion on, really don't need another truck. lol
