Customer Reviews

I've played with a lot of Carrera tracks as a kid -- but I don't remember any of them being this frustrating.

First off, I must mention that if you are having problems with the cars staying on the track, flip the car over and press the metal connects down towards the car.
S. Fercho
The speed of the cars is too fast for the track as well, and the guard rails do not help in slowing or stopping the cars from flying off the track.

First off, I must mention that if you are having problems with the cars staying on the track, flip the car over and press the metal connects down towards the car. If they stick out too much, they lift the car off the track and cause problems. Once I figured this out, me and my 3 year old were able to make lap after lap after lap without falling off the track. Wario was a little too big for some parts so he had to stay on the inside lane (when at the starting line), otherwise his head hit in certain spots, but other than that, if you are still falling off, slow down at the curves!! I was impressed how quickly my 3 year old picked up on that.

Overall I'm very impressed, I've been looking for a track like this for quite some time. Now I hope I can find some expansions, loops, and even other kinds of cars to add to the track.

My son was immediately attracted to this set because of the familiar characters. I assembled it while he was sleeping and found that I couldn't keep the cars on the track for more than a couple of laps at the time. The controllers are too sensitive for the kind of responsiveness you need to navigate the steep curves and vertical challenges of the advertised track layout.

The Wario car, in particular, must have a weird center of gravity, because it hops off the tracks even on the slightest of curves. Mario is better, but still, this set will cause far more aggravation than delight. My suggestions to Carrera would be:

1) stronger magnets to keep the cars on track
2) lighter cars so the magnets can hold them down more easily
3) much more gradual change in speed with the analog controllers
4) entry-level sets need entry-level track layouts

I bought a competitor's 1:43 scale "kid's" set for about the same price, and it's a blast (SCX 1:43 "Tuner" set). The cars have lights for great fun in the dark, and even with reasonably steep curves, the cars can absolutely SCREAM around the track without coming out of the slot. You get less track than the Carrera set, but the SCX set more than makes up for the difference with simplicity of construction and PLAYABILITY. My three year-old had the hang of racing the SCX tuners in about 30 minutes.

I've been trying to manage the Mario set for a few hours now, and if I want to stay on the tracks, I have to creep around at a snail's pace. I'll try a simpler (FLAT) track layout next to see if we can salvage this Carrera set at all.

This performance of this set relies on two things: the brushes and skill with using the throttle. The brushes need to be set at the right angle and flared out to increase contact. Once you do that the cars run smoother and stay in the slot much better. This set won't run as smoothly as a higher end set, but they run pretty well as long as you don't stop over a track join. The longer you run the cars during a session the better they perform because the brushes fray a bit after use. The second trick is not applying full throttle on a turn. Full throttle causes the cars to leap off the track. Once you know this you can run the cars for many laps without stopping or falling off.

The Wario car is slightly too wide because its front corner enters the space of the other car on some turns, so it works better if Wario is on the outer track. The cars are fairly tall because Wario and Luigi have cartoony proportions. This makes the cars a little top heavy so you should slow down on corners.

The car build itself is sturdy and looks fine. Their motors are very powerful. The track looks like normal Carerra track, so nothing unusual there.

The layout works better if you skip installing the fly over. The guard rails don't prevent the cars from jumping out of their slot so installing those are optional. The cars fit nicely under the bridge if you set the adjustable posts to maximum height. Smart positioning of the posts is necessary.

As for the controllers, they would work better if they applied the power more smoothly. It's variable control but the controller quality essentially boils down to having about 3 speeds: slow, normal, and light speed.

Conclusion:

Overall I think it's a decent set worth about $60-75. The cars can get stuck if you stop.

My mom bought this for my cousin for Christmas and this set is a blast!!! My brother and me put it together and it was pretty hard to get the track together, but after a while we finally got it. We never had a problem with them falling off the track, and if you just adjust the height of the things that hold up the track then Wario can fit anywhere. You do have to take some time and figure out how fast you have to go at certain points, but that is part of the fun.

The Good
1. Mario Kart :)
2. After you get it together it is very fun
3. The cars can crash and they do not break easy

The Bad
1. Price is a little high
2. Takes a while to put together.

In the end this is a gift that my cousin has played with more then just about any other gift he got. I play with him and we have had some good races and I think this is a great item.
