Each handheld control provides a boost button for 25% more power when tackling loops and increasing speed on straightaways. Includes an automatic lap counter.

By fun family
As soon as the product arrived we eagerly open the box and assembled the race car track. The directions and manual illustrations were easy to follow and all pieces labeled for identification. The track has features to secure the seperate pieces together and form a stable track. The cars are able to perform the different track curves and circles and stay on the track. Our 7 year old and 9 year old play this set daily. Of course we have times the car flips off or falls. Any car piece that falls off we have been able to snap right back on. Carerra has many cars that can run this track and extensions. This set fills the complete top of our full size pool table. Can't stop the fun.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fabulous Slot Car Set
from Clayton, NJ
My son & grandson played for 5 hours. Works great, kids don't get bored.
very satisfing,a lot of fun
a lot of fun for both young and old,a big hit at christmas
from los angeles
took about an hour to assemble(i decided to not include the loop). cars ran good, very fast, extremely fun. the only thing that gives me trouble are the stands that keep the track up. other then that i'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Nice system, fun for kids of all ages
from Phoenix, AZ
Fun for older kids (high school, college) to help the younger kids set up. My 5 yr old daughter practiced for a short time before she could control the cars lap after lap. Instructions were basically pictures only, with little or no clarification. Website offered no further explanation. The picture on the box shows more pieces for stacking to 2 and 3 upper levels, but those pieces were not included in the set and the 'instructions' did not even address them. Thought the extension set would have more specialized pieces, but did not. This is a pretty large set, so you'll need most of your living room floor to operate. The cars were basically identical in style and color, so it is difficult to keep track of your car, especially when you switch tracks. Some of the pieces pop off, but you can easily pop them back on. The recommended extension set is digital, but you cannot run digital cars on the basic starter set - so abit confusing. Overall - really fun and good quality. Will be fun to set up new configurations, especially at Christmas time year after year.
Perfect gift for hours of fun!
from Macomb, MI
What a perfect gift! We researched slot cars for my Son before Christmas and decided to try this set based upon some of the reviews. I must say that I was a great purchase. For starters, the customer service has been excellent! One of the cars was malfunctioning and they sent another one out immediately! WOW, don't see that very often. The tack is great for all users, even Dad's! I also purchased the track extension which was a great choice as well, defiantly recommend it.
An enjoyable experience for all
from Dublin, Ohio
Purchased this for my grandson's Christmas present..He and everyone loves it. Beginning is tough keeping the cars from jumping off the track; but increased experience helps to overcome this.
a great gift for the child in us
from Groveland, CA
This was an investment for the whole family, and really worth the smiles of delight it engendered.
from Houston, TX
My son received numerous Chistmas presents, this race set by far was his favorite. Thank you!
Similar to old-school Tyco sets
from Allen, TX
Context: I grew up playing with the Tyco race cars, including the ones that you could drive up on the wall. They were awesome.This is very similar to those. My 7 and 6 year old boys figured it out quickly (we took the loop to loop out at first to make it easier on them to get the hang of it).The only con is the cars they provide have wire connectors on the bottom of the cars. These connectors get messed up and you are constantly having to adjust them. The old Tyco cars used magnets and steel connectors to keep the cars on the tracks better and you never had to adjust them. But my kids have no context, so they love it.I would definitely recommend and buy it again!
