Hot Wheels has a new remote control car line called RC Nitro Speeders and it is so fast and fun that after first playing with it, my son and I grinned like fools for the next five minutes. The bite-size car, which is 1/87 scale, achieves its top speed in less than one second. It travels a little more than eight miles an hour, but when you scale that speed, it moves at a blazing 600 MPH — it is ridiculously fast. Its slick tires allow the car to drift around corners and its speed will enable it to stick to any Hot Wheels track, including loops.
I could go on and on about how much fun it is to play with, but maybe it would be better just to show you. Check out the video below to see all the details about the Nitro Speeder, how to get the car running, and see it in action. (It’s so fast, my son had trouble keeping it in frame!)
Hot Wheels RC Nitro Speeders, $27.99, available now.
