Confirmed purchaser Father of two.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great fun, and a complete kit - everything you need to enjoy the racing set.
Bad points:
Design hasn't changed much in 40 years. Still rubbish pickups that don't pickup. Car wiring is brittle and has to be fixed within a week's use. Wired hand-controllers (wired! - these days!) with wires that are too short and you trip over all the time. Useless bridge supports that don't support the track. Basically it's the same stuff I had as a kid 40 years ago - the only improvement is the transformer/power supply. Still great fun. Old fashioned design. That's what having no competition does for a product.
