Get ready for adventure and breakneck speeds with this slot car racetrack inspired by the hit movie "Cars 2." Carrera Go!!!'s Secret Mission race set comes with two 1:43-scale cars based on the film characters Mater and Finn McMissile. Designed for children over eight , young racers will love the thrilling twists and turns of this 20-foot track.
Track Design Offers Racing Thrills
This 34-piece racetrack will put kids' racing skills to the test as they maneuver tight curves and gravity-defying loops. This Secret Mission race set includes the beloved tow truck Mater and the suave secret agent Finn McMissile. Both cars sport meticulous paint jobs and movie-accurate detailing sure to please fans of "Cars 2." In addition, the cars feature sturdy plastic bodies built to withstand repeated crashes.
This slot-car track snaps together for easy assembly using Carrera's bolt system. That said, due to the large number of parts and picture-only directions, parents should plan on spending an hour on assembly.
Fast, controlled, and responsive, these cars work in the classic slot car model: double-contact brushes create a magnetic attraction, keeping the car on the tracks and offering fast, controlled racing. Two easy-to-use remote controls include a "Turbo Speed" button, which allows the cars to reach even faster speeds.
Slot car racing requires a certain level of skill. Kids should expect their cars to occasionally spin out of control if they're going too fast. When kids aren't racing, a lap counter allows them practice to improve their times.
What's in the Box
Mater race car, Finn McMissile race car, 34 track pieces, two controllers, instructions, and accessories.

I was discouraged when reading the reviews of all the different Cars Slot Tracks on the market. But knowing that most of the complaints are very common and user error I plunged in and purchased the Cars version with Hicks included. I want to clarify the problem people have with these things. Slot cars fly off tracks for a reason, not a manufacturing defect. It is racing and the user is in control of the car. You have to learn to slow down for curves and other things that would required any car to slow down and drive more cautious for. My four year old learned it pretty quick and my seven year old was beating me thereafter. We have a blast with this set. The tracks are held together with small clips keeping it from coming apart which is very cool. I really love the set we got and since they are all made by the same company and around the same time I assume all are made as well as mine. Do not put clips in until you are sure you want to leave it all together because it is time consuming to un-assemble the entire track. Also you should have room for the track to go so it can stay assembled. I am putting ours in my shop on a table with guard rails to keep the cars from crashing on to the concrete floor. Now for the TURBO button. Some same it is useless, but after using it for a while the turbo button is a blast. Just bumping it right out of a curve or if the car stops while still on its track is very useful, and how my son was able to beat me for a while. Now we are back and forth as winners. If you and/or your kids are not in to learning to use the toy then skip it. I would prefer to use this race track over building a complex lego toy all day. I don't like spending an hour to build a lego but love spending hours racing my kids on this track. Good Luck and may the best racer win!!!
- Well constructed
- Can set it up in 30 minutes now and pack away in 10 (first time takes about an hour)
- Great cartoon characters
- Move the controls to the other side and reverse direction
- Hours of fun
- An extension set will be needed to add variety
- As cartoon characters they are top heavy (unless they are a F1 Ferrari like Francesco)
- You have to learn to control the acceleration or they will fly off the track
After setting up the controls on the other side of the track the cars race in the other direction. An immediate unexpected benefit was that the cars seemed to stick to the track better. It could also be the kids are just getting better. I highly recommend getting Francesco Bernoulli as he is the real lightning on this track!
...a great deal for under $40.00. (If I had paid +$80.00 for this set I'd drop my rating as the two cars are unmatched to race and you will have to purchase another to compete).
On to the track itself, it's pretty good quality, the one thing I dont like is that all of the accessories are cardboard including the guardrails. Plastic for at least those would have been better. I left everything else in the box except for those. I like how it has the little locks to tie the track pieces together. A few of the plastic interlocking pieces broke off due to my seven year old helping with assembly, but between the close fit of the metal connections and the locks the track holds together well. The one I had when I was kid, if you broke a few tabs, after doing a couple of laps the tracks would start seperating itself and break the connection. The cars are pretty good quality also, you have to follow the instructions and spread out the mesh connections on the bottom.Read more ›
