Mobility on the Ground and in Your Pocket
The RC Nitro Speeders are designed so all parts can fit inside your pocket and go wherever you go. The remote controller doubles as a charging deck, consolidating two separate functions in a single efficient tool. The remote also serves as a carrying case, featuring a small, clear compartment that easily holds the Nitro Speeder. This way, you can carry all the tools you need in one simple piece that fits comfortably in your hand.
High Speeds and Precise Driving
With their small size and microchip technology, Nitro Speeders can make super-precise, high-speed turns and feature responsive control in all directions. The high-power, rechargeable battery dodges any unnecessary weight, and two 30,000-rpm motors supply power to each set of wheels. Super-size tires increase the Nitro Speeders' traction, propelling the vehicle forward, in reverse, and around sharp turns at a scale speed of 0 to 600 miles per hour.
Promotes Coordination and Strategy
Our testers were impressed by the acceleration and speed the Nitro Speeders could reach, and had fun learning how to use the controllers to make swift, sharp turns on hard indoor surfaces. Testers found that at first the extreme speeds of the Nitro Speeders often caused the vehicles to flip over. However, after reading the quick tips in the provided instructions and some practice with the controller, the drivers' coordination improved and Nitro Speeders became easier to drive.
The Nitro Speeders come in five different varieties: Chevy Camaro Car, Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Hammer Head Vehicle, Ken Block Ford Fiesta Rally Car, Mustang Car, and Team Hot Wheels Mustang Car. Collect 'em all to stage races and work on your racing strategy!
The remote controller requires four AA batteries (not included).

The charge seems to last for about a half hour of play, and everyone who has played with it has had fun (except for one napping cat who was offended at being woken by it). It is definitely best on very smooth surfaces, like hallways, or flooring. It worked on one type of sidewalk, but not another (marginally less smooth) type of sidewalk.
My only criticism of this very fun toy is that I wish the tires had been designed better. They are plastic, not rubber, so the car spins out easily. And the tires are so small that you can't possibly run the car on many outdoor surfaces, even rather normal-seeming sidewalks, as the height of the car is such that it gets stuck on the aggregate and won't go. A taller, rubberized tire would make a world of difference in how usable this toy is.
That said, it's loads of fun, very durable and speedy, and I've had a blast playing with it. Definitely a hit in my household!
To take the above ratings in order:
The car is so small and maneuverable that you can send it almost anywhere for all kinds of fun racing, even solo.
While "educationally" it doesn't rate high in math, say, the hand/eye coordination training for younger players can be most impressive.
Further, while, as I say, the control factor is awesome ONCE YOU'VE MASTERED IT, the amount of wall-hitting, etc. that you incur while learning, shows the mighty mite to be most durable, indeed!
Finally, a word about the "age" factor: While the package recommends the toy for kids 8+, I can attest to the fact that it passes the "I'm Christian James and I'll be 6 on Groudhog Day" factor, just fine, thank you!
These are impossible to race or even to maneuver.
Nevertheless, I will say that the design is cool and elegant: I love the idea of a car that can be charged by -- and stored in -- its own remote control. (The only reason for my second star.)
But in the end, I would not buy again or recommend to anyone.
PS: Note the overly professional video available on Amazon. The cars are only shown for brief periods of time, and in highly-controlled situations. This is because they are totally uncontrollable.
First, the positives. This car is insanely fast. I mean INSANELY fast. It's also very durable. My kids have rammed it into the wall a hundred times over the past week and it just keeps on going. Battery life is surprisingly good too.
Now, the negatives. The speed of this car is awesome. In fact, it's too awesome for my kids and my house. I live in a 1700 square foot house with hardwood floors. Even this is not enough room for this thing. It goes so fast that you simply can't control it. You'll need a gym floor to really cut it loose.
Secondly, if your floors aren't clean enough to eat off of, then get ready for constant cleaning of the wheels. Every little piece of hair and lint gets caught in these things and once it does, forget it, it will not function correctly until you clean it.
Thirdly, the red version has a short in the charging wire. You have to move it around to get it to charge.
Overall, I'm disappointed. The defective charger, over-the-top speed, and constant cleaning outweigh the initial awe of the speed and the car's durability. My daughters have tried to no avail to master anything but drag racing down the hall. And no matter how we try, we can't seem to get the floor clean enough. These things sniff out hair and lint like a bloodhound.

Cute car while it lasts - which isn't long. The charging component is easily broken, which means the car cannot work. Probably lasted 3 days.Published on July 15, 2013 by Tamiel G. Kenney
