GIZMO: Carrera Model Car Racing Set

More toys! Combine the high-speed fun of traditional slot-car racing with loops, lane changes and other surprising challenges in this race set from Carrera, Germany’s premier maker of slot-car sets since 1963. More than just a simple oval or figure eight track from traditional race sets, this 37′-long course has hairpin 180° turns, overpasses, two lane-narrowing chicanes, and two gravity-defying loops to test racers’ skills.

The sturdy construction and detailing are of the fine quality that racing hobbyists expect from Carrera, and the loops, high-banked turns, tight bends and lane narrowing track segments add a unique twist to the action. The two richly detailed 1:43 Formula One cars use a specially designed “double brush,� which provides a secure contact to the power strip in the track and ensures consistent control during a race. (Spare pair of brushes included.) A “boost� button on the trigger control provides a 25% increase in power to tackle loops. Includes lap counter. All 42 track pieces, as well as cars and connecting gear, are sturdy ABS plastic. Plugs into AC.

You can also get a track extension set that includes six straightaways, two lane change sections, 1 chicane (lane narrowing), and two overpass “flyovers� for only $19.95.
