Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Hand controllers improved from 1970's. Detailed cars. Lap counter and timer prevent old arguements as to who has won. Track much easier to construct. Track configuration gives skill in car control. Cars of similar speed, but with different strengths.
Bad points:
Cars detailed but parts fragile with clear potential of crashes at crossover. Both cars lost their wing mirrors. Red car has some scratch marks.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
really good track, my son especially loves the cross over for lots of crashes. didn't realise the cars lights came on which gives maximum effects when room lights are dimmed. the controls have been just right for my 7 year old. my son picked this one out as it came with the cross over and a lap timer which we haven't used yet as didn't realise it needed batteries.
Bad points:
quite a large track which is good but obviously you don't want it in the middle of your sons bedroom floor. the trouble is you have to use the controls on the other side of the plug and you need to have a fully flat track for the lap timer to work but there is nowhere for the cables to go apart from underneath the track. this is just a small bad point and fully recommend this to anyone.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
everyone in the family has enjoyed racing! especially trying to get the cars to crash.
Bad points:
wing mirrors on cars came off on first day after a few crashes. suggest they are made of rubber to be more flexible.
