QUICK SUMMARY: Wow, am I impressed with this set! Setup was easy, and everything works much, much better than I ever expected or remembered from the slot car sets from my childhood. Great fun for boys and girls both, children and adults! Highly recommended!

Background: This was the big-ticket item for my 8yo son this Christmas. It was either this slot car set or a train set, but he's never been real interested in trains, so I thought I'd try a slot car set instead (figuring I'd be more apt to play with him using a slot car set). The setup was extremely easy to do, and the two race cars do an AMAZING job staying on the track! I can't believe how much better this set is than the sets I grew up with. The track layout is excellent, providing two places where the cars might crash as they crossover from one lane to the other, and another place where the track's wavy pattern requires slowing the car down to get through successfully. A long straightway lets you get top speed from your car.

Notes: The track takes up a space of about 5 feet x 4 feet on the floor. It's the HO scale, meaning 1:87 ratio. If you're not familiar with that size, the cars are pretty small -- about the length of your thumb, and not much wider.

TIP: The instructions say to use fine grit sandpaper to clean the car's metal contacts. We use 91% rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip to do the same thing, but it's easier with the Q-tip and you won't risk accidentally sandpapering your car's wheels or wear down the metal tabs more quickly than you need to.

WHAT I LIKE:

- Easy setup. No trouble with breaking plastic tabs or faulty track connections.

I bought this set for my 5 yr. old son and his Grandpa to play with. The track is very easy to assemble and it comes with all the necessary parts. Everything worked great right out of the box and we have had no problems so far. The cars are very fast and good quality. When you first run the cars, the contacts will have a bit of friction on them (this is natural) and they will seem to have trouble moving the first few laps. However, after the first 5-10 minutes, the contacts get slicker and the cars really show their true colors! The box says ages 14 and up, but my 5 year old is doing very well at controlling the cars' speed. You cannot run these cars at full throttle or they will fly off the track. I'm tempted to buy track extensions and make the straight-aways much longer so we can really fly! The quality of this set is 5 stars and the fun factor is definitely high! I would recommend this set to anyone. We have owned this set for almost 2 months.

The Good:
Quick setup.
The course can be changed to how the kids want it.
Cars go fast.
Durable cars. We've had this for a month and the cars will knock each other off, or the car will go flying off the track into walls (the funnest part for our boys) and still work.
Works on carpet.
A few spare pieces for the cars.

The Bad:
Before the cars go they need to be "warmed up." Although the instructions talk about how to warm up the car, which should take 30 seconds or so, it doesn't seem adequate. Our cars generally need a few minutes to warm up so they can go all the way around the track with no problems. Once warmed-up the cars work great.

We just gave this to my son last night for his birthday. By this after noon both of the cars have broken. They where super fast, the track is great, but the cars are junkie! I now have to take them and see if our local hobby shop guy can fix them. I hate to spend anymore money, this was kind of expensive for us. The kids absolutely had a blast with it while it was working though.

Sent this toy to my nephew. When my brother took it out of the box he said that a lot of the connector pins were either broken or bent as well as the plastic tabs between the track pieces. He wound up duct taping the track together to get it to work. He said it works well but has to constantly check the tape and track connections. I told him to send the track back.

This set is quality made and sturdy. The design is exciting for young children and the cars and action are much better than anticipated. The set was well worth the cost and a bargain compared to most hobby shops.

There are a lot of little pieces to put together: guard-rails, flags, etc. The flags are stickers that you wrap around a little plastic pole. Within a day, the stickers have all fallen away from the poles or have fallen off. There is quite a bit of work required to make sure the connections are good as well.

There has to be a better product.
