Default Which re re to buy? (parts availability)

so my 6 year old has a re re lunchbox and its time to buy a new one for the next son......i'm not too keen on another lunchie chassis as it just get stuck on tings too easily and rolls too often.
i really like the DT02 street rovers looks and the stadium blaster but i have heard that parts are immossible to get for them?

i'm looking at something slow that i can fit a 380 or a crawler motor into it to keep the speed down but can still jump ok..

any suggestions?
Are parts that much of a problem?

or should i just get a DT02 holiday buggy and get some blitser tyres for it.

Why do you think parts are hardto get for DT02 chassis?! That's a current production chassis..

Iset up my 6 year old on a re-re grass hopper. it has a 380 as standard and he has a blast with it dead stock. Cost effective and plenty can be upgraded as he gets better and saves his pennies. Also, it is everything a little boy loves, donuts, dirt, jumps! Can't be beat in the price bracket.

thanks guys.
ive made up my mind and am going to get the street rover and put some off road tires on it (not sure which yet) and install a crawler motor to get the top speed down but still have some torque.
any hints on what crawler motor to get? how many turns is the most common?
