    Incredible! I never thought that I would have access to a ready to run rc this small! Let alone this feature packed! I have the bmw mini and a drift car and the drift track. Both carts are unbelievably awesome. It’s a good thing the battery runs out or I wouldn’t stop playing with them. They were so much fun I got the largest track and the type P racer. Blown away that the racer is so much faster than the BMW. The tuning you can do to fit your style of driving is incredible. The radio has duel rate dials and the trims as well as the light features on the cars including break lights when you brake. These are close enough to 1/87 scale to work with my HO scale layout as well. I have already made cement Highway barriers (Jersey barriers) for this 1/76 scale since they were already sold out of the plastic barriers at MRC. I’ll post some picks off some cool ideas for making the tracks more interesting as well in the near future. If you’re on the fence about these, get off and get one or two. I have been so impressed I just ordered the type S racer and the other two tracks that I don’t have yet. These are awesome! Loads of fun and I don’t even have anyone to race with. Time trials!!

      Want to create more challenges or change things up even for the current track you have? Try elevation changes. I put mine partially on a rubber floor mat to create some elevation change in several spots on the track and then tried a pretty extreme elevated curve using some packing foam. And it is fantastic. Adds another element of fun and the cars perform great! Here are some pics showing the elevation changes and my true to scale, real cement Highway barriers. These things are great fun and I love how long the battery’s last. Long run times!
