Looking for a decent setup for my son.

I have not be in the RC scene for a very long time, owned a few nitro cars about 10-15 years ago but that's about it.
Yesterday my son broke his collar bone and we do lots of camping, fishing, watersports, and atving. But now he wont be doing that for 4-6 weeks. So im looking to get him a decent RC car that he can go outside and have some fun with, Hit a few jumps, run through some ditches etc...
I have mostly been looking into a traxxas 4x4 due to the accessibility of their product parts and accessories. Now what i need to know is what would you guys recommend in terms of truck there are several different models. Should i go with brush less over brushed? is it really that much better? most of them with the stock batteries say they have about a 10 min run time, which isn't enough so i would either need to buy some extra batters or go with a new battery and charger and that adds on some extra cost.
I noticed bets buy has a 1/16 summit on for 329.99 and that's around my budget but then i would need different batteries and charger and have no idea what kind i would need.
I would say my total budget would be around 400 so can anyone recommend me a nice little package for around that price. and of course i will be driving it as well its not all for him.

Re: Looking for a decent setup for my son.
Get a traxxas summit, but not 1/16. Get him the monster.
Check Kijiji for a used one
Get lipos and a decent charger
Take camera, capture the biggest smiles in the world. LOL
EDIT: Seriously, traxxas is the way to go since theres such great parts support from Bestbuy , FS and the local hobby shops. Buy the big one right away, itll last forever.
