Honestly, something like a nitro rustler or nitro sport would probably be good. They are pretty strong, fast, fun to drive, easy to get parts for, and the best part for a newbie is that they are very simple and cheap to work on if you break it. It really depends on the budget he is working with, and where you are running. Plus, the ez-start is nice for a first timer to the nitro scene.

OR get a cheap nitro stampede off ebay too. Both are great trucks and very easy to work on.
