The Video Racer includes four attachment clips and an Action Cam protective attachment case that allow your car to travel on a variety of new terrains. Two of the attachment clips come with corresponding adhesive strips, allowing you to affix your car to places such as a bike helmet so you can film as you ride. The other two clips come with an adjustable strap so you can wear the Video Racer attached to your arm or wrist to film your stunts, no matter what sport you play!

Edit and Share Videos with Friends and Family

When the battery is drained or the memory is full, simply plug the Video Racer into a computer with the included USB cable. With the Video Racer editing software installed, the car charges as recorded footage automatically transfers to the computer. With the included instructions, controlling the camera and software settings is easy and fun.

The Video Racer editing software runs only on a Windows Operating System. Our Mac-using testers were happy to find, though, that they were still able to play their videos on the computer even if they weren't able to edit them.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My 9-year-old son loved this toy and so did his dad. I could hardly get it away from them long enough to check it out so I could review it.

Getting started:
You should charge the car for at least an hour before you start recording. The battery holds a charge for about 45 min. and there is a light that will blink to tell you the battery is running low.

Filming:
The skull-shaped button is easy to get to--on the top back of the car. All you do is push, it blinks, telling you you're ready to go. The camera is in the front of the car where the headlights would be and the USB is in the tail of the car. the power (off/on) switch is on the side and the microphone is on the top where the hood would be.There is even an LCD screen on the underside of the car that allows you to play back the video. Below the LCD screen are two buttons, one for playback of the video, the other for changing the camera settings. There are a couple of different settings for different filming modes like VGA (30 frames per second )resolution and QVGA (60 frames per second)resolution. They are pretty simplistic and they can be tested to see which works best under different lighting. VGA is supposed to be for outdoor shots, QVGA for track shots. The skull button also acts as a memory status bar. As the button's red color fills, it has less memory available for recording.

Watching the movie:
The LCD is small, but does the job. There is no sound on the car when you play back the video. You have to hook it up to a computer to get sound. There is also a delete button on the LCD so you can erase a recording if it is not satisfactory. The video quality won't be winning you any Academy Awards, but it's passable and much better in bright, outdoor light.

Open the box, huge smiles, dancing around the room, charge up the car, play around with it going vroom vroom, watch the video, HOW COOL IS THIS?, strap the car to a slot car, run it around the track, watch the video, HOW COOL WAS THAT?, run it around some Hot Wheels track - it's a good fast car. But, what now?

This is a really expensive toy that does something really cool, but does it have a ton of replay value?

For the kids, this is fun. The videos are decent. The idea of putting a tiny camera in a Hot Wheels car is fantastic. If you play with Hot Wheels a lot, this is a great addition to the box of cars. Outside of recording laps around your track or making car videos, your cell phone will work better.

What is this thing? I posted some pictures of a tear down. It is a fairly poor quality cell phone camera, (I would guess the standard 3Megapixel camera in low end phones), a poor microphone, a very small battery, a tiny LCD panel (probably one from the rear view of a flip cell phone) and some pretty fancy custom circuit boards and chips. Mattel did a great job digging through the cell phone parts bin to find lightweight rugged parts. The parts are extremely well protected. The LCD is actually covered by a fairly solid piece of plastic and an air gap (it would take a very direct hard hit to break the LCD). The circuit boards are all encapsulated in plastic and then protected with an air gap inside the car body. Submerging this in water is a bad idea, there's a good chance the electronics would fry. However, rain, mud, getting wet - the electronics are very well protected from that.

I was happy to see this item and snapped it up for my 6 and 8 year old kids. As expected, my 6 year old son took it up right away and my 8 year old daughter had a lot of fun with it as well. It is very light weight (which of course is a prerequisite for a Hot Wheels car) and fairly easy to learn in terms of setup. There are 2 buttons on the bottom of the car and a picture-based menu which I ended up navigating trial and error style a lot like one would figure out the functions of a digital watch (I am firmly in the group of guys for whom consulting a manual is a last resort). The camera is tiny and appears well protected at the front of the car. The LCD on the bottom of the car is for navigation of the menus and a quick preview of footage. The car has a microphone but not a speaker so playback on the car is silent, but can be heard once video is transferred to a computer, though mostly the microphone just picks up track sounds as one would expect. The transfer of video was easily accomplished to my Mac by plugging in the included USB link which plugs into the back of the car. The car then appears on the desktop just like a jump drive. It is my understanding it should be just as easy under Windows.

The included video is actual footage shot by my son. As you can see, the picture is very dark despite being shot in a room with a light on and outdoor light coming in through some large windows. Not too surprising as it is shot with basically a pinhole camera! I thought about shooting some footage myself and lighting the scene but figured this video would better reflect what other kids would produce and would better show actual results.
