Easy-to-Assemble Bolt System Track Pieces
Serving as a proper venue to conduct the race, the Hero Team Chase Race Set offers 15 easy-to-assemble Avengers logo track pieces that snap together via a convenient bolt system. The curved pieces are distinguished by red- and white-printed shoulders that can be augmented with decorative guardrail displays of Thor, Hawkeye, the Hulk, and other Avengers signs. When fully assembled, the track measures 4.89 by 2.79 feet (W x L).
Two Highly Detailed Magnetic Race Cars
The race set comes with two highly detailed magnetic slot race cars inspired by two main Avengers characters. Kids can choose between Tony Stark's red-and-gold Iron Man Tech Racer, and Steve Rogers' red, white, and blue Captain America Stormer. Each 1:43-scale car is marked by distinctive features including colorful tampo-printed detailing, hood scoop, and rear spoiler.
Turbo Speed Controllers Let You Control the Action
Each car is controlled via a turbo speed controller that plugs into the track. Lightweight and ergonomically designed, the controllers feature a trigger button to set the cars in motion and a thumb lever to control speed. Just be careful when applying the speed as the turbo boost function can send your car hurtling off the track.

Double Contact Brushes for Maximum Charge
To ensure powerful racing, each car is outfitted with double contact brushes on the underside to receive an optimal electrical charge. Rubber tires on all four rims also provide a suitable grip when charging down straightaways and taking sharp curves. Two lap counters keep track of your races and can be manually adjusted to record up to 50 laps.
High-Speed Race Play Requires Skill
Our testers found the race set easy to set up. With only a little force, the track pieces snap firmly into place for a secure hold. Once the controllers and power cord are plugged in, it's off to the races.
In racing the cars, our testers noted a couple of issues that can affect performance. For one, it's sometimes difficult to align the cars exactly in the track slots. Also, the turbo controllers can be a bit tricky to get the hang of, requiring a skilled touch to apply the appropriate pressure. Too little pressure on the thumb lever, and the cars stall; too much pressure, and they race off the track like a projectile. Parents should exercise caution when setting up the track near anything fragile.
