This slot-car set is made by Carrera, the world's most prestigious slot-car maker since 1963. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, the set's 29 1/2' of track challenges racers' skills with two loops, two lane changes, a flyover, and a 180º high-banked curve. Two richly detailed 1:43 Formula One Ferrari cars (representing F1 drivers Fernando Alonso's and Felipe Massa's cars) use a specially designed double-contact brush, which provides a secure connection to the track for consistent control during a race. Each handheld control provides a boost button for 25% more power when tackling loops and increasing speed on straightaways. Includes an automatic lap counter. Durable ABS plastic withstands years of intense racing. Plugs into AC. Ages 8 and up. Imported. Assembled track requires 7' 7 3/4" x 3' 3 3/4" set-up area. (12 lbs.)

Good Quality product. Took some time for my husband to set up. My two boys ages 7 and 5 enjoyed it, but usually only play with it if my husband engages them to.
Great product, easy set up and delivery
from Rockville, MD
The product was easy to order online and delivery for the holidays was timely, even with my late order.
reliable quality, fast delivery
from Bethesda, MD
While the track is ok, the cars are just too flimsy and lightweight. I expected somewhat better from the Carrera brand which has been on the market like forever. For that, I take a star off my score.
Nice Product, Miserable Directions
By Chicago F1 Fan
from Chicago, IL
For a young racing fan, this is a nice product. The cars look realistic. There is a learning curve for operation, but after a while it becomes fun to operate.A few complaints:1. It really comes with no assembly instructions. Basically, there is a poorly drafted diagram showing how it comes together. It took me three hours to figure it out all out.2. The parts, particulary for the loop and generally for the supports, do not fit together as well as they should for the price. For the price, they could have done a better job.3. It tends to have problems that can be difficult to sort out. At times, either the inner or outer track fails to work. Given that this is an electric toy, that's a problem. It appears that the problems are caused by things like dirt on the track or shifting of pieces, but it is a problem.Overall, a decent product but it could be a heck of a lot better.
Great for the Kids (and Adults)
By Mama E
from Florence, MA
Although my 8 and 9 year old boys probably COULD set it up themselves, it was faster for me to do it. For an adult set up was easy (once you figured out the instructions diagram). Worked great and was lots of fun for the kids and grown ups! Great price compared to others I saw online. Like the track set up a lot.
Great slot car set
The set is really nice. Put it together with my 4,5,&7 yr old boys in about 45 minutes. The cars are really fast and the track is a lot of fun. One of the controllers gets stuck on full speed whenever you press the turbo, so I am calling to get that replaced - will see how that goes. This set is clearly NOT made for kids this young, and my boys all had a hard time controlling the speed at first, with lots of cars flying off the track. But they eventually got it and could get the cars around the track on a consistent basis without them flying off.
Loads of FUN with the GrandKids!!!
from Weatherford, TX
Found this Slot Car Set to be alot of fun and brought back some great memories!!
Not the best quality
My grandkids love it and play with it a lot so, from that perspective, it was a success. Although it doesn't seem to bother them all that much, the quality bothers me greatly for the price. Consequently, I have mixed emotions on this item.........enjoyable IF you don't mind "adjusting" the parts frequently as they won't stay in place.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great slot car race track set
from Auburn, NY
I looked at many differant kind of slot car tracks and review and found that the carrera sets where most well reviewed. I bought the set for my 11yr old son for Christmas and I must say it is a great set and we raced for about 4 hours straight. The cars stay on the track 90% of the time and doesn't take long to get used to the controls. The instruction aren't great but with a little common sense it took about 45 min to set up. I'm very happy with my purchase of this set and would recemmend this to a friend.
