the sc10rs with the throttle turned down will get a good runtime on the 3s.
I cant think of any truck/buggy suitable for kids that will run on the 4s. Most everything running on 4s is 1/8 scale and brushless.
Back to the 3s, you can look into the traxxas 1/10 scale brushless models. The VXL models have a 50% throttle model on the ESC. Not as adjustable as the throttle end point on the sc10's radio, but it would still make the model run slower on a 3s and thus get more runtime. But a traxxas vxl on 3s can run 60mph....so figure 25-30mph at 50%. That is still pretty fast, especially for a small area.
I am sure there are some other RTR models that come with a radio that has throttle end points, just non I know about off hand.
I have a flysky GT3c radio. For a $60 radio it can do a lot. It has model memory, and it has throttle end points. Soo, you could buy that radio plus a few extra receivers (they are $10) and thus setup your big brushless trucks for the kids to drive. It is pretty easy to use the LCD menu to set the throttle to the % you want for any model. Again, this will not only limit the speed so the kids can handle them, but double or triple the runtime.
