Default Any way to control speeds for my kids??

Hey guys, ok. Short Version - had a caldera 10e before running on lipos etc. FAST...too fast for my kids. I loved it but with the kids fighting for it, i could only let them try it out here and there.

Anyways, Im thinking about picking up a tornado epx pro (i know essentially the same as a caldera) but the kids are 2 years older now. Wondering though if there is a way that I can control speeds or have some sort of adult mode, kid mode switch so to speak haha.

Any thoughts or work arounds? I dont want to be constantly swapping out parts, just wondering if there is an easy solution for my needs .

Thanks in advance,

Very cheap way. Put a piece of rubber or plastic tube on the rear finger control. It will not let them pull it back all the way.

X2 - I tape a stopper on the handle to prevent the trigger from being pulled all the way.
