Ok this all started with my 2 year old who loves arching vehicle-relate YouTube videos. The more mundane/repetitive, the faster he falls to sleep. Only occasionally for nap time - not bed time - before the your-a-horrible-parent conversation begins.
Fast forward to finding this guys YouTube channel https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCjDMb-KPxfVv3EeO1jDoJvw.
I became addicted to watching these darn videos - over and over and over. Now I bet the use of all-Mattel sets is taboo in a forum like this and I promise I put the honest effort into trying to find this info before I made this post (I love how upset people get when an eight of a second of their time and a piece of virtual paper is wasted when a duplicate post is created...) but here is my question:
Why on earth is this set discontinued? Did you guys mount a tea party like revolt against it? Haha http://www.amazon.com/Hot-Wheels-Super-6-Lane-Raceway/dp/B004U5C392/ref=sr_1_2?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1420217593&sr=1-2&keywords=hot+wheels+4+lane+raceway
...and why is there not a similar set available today? I want to get something for my son sans the BS loop-D-loops, jumps, etc. Simple, reliable, fun.
This is the closest thing I have been able to find but even this doesn't fit the "simple" criteria - I don't want to have to pick up cars after every darn race. http://www.amazon.com/Hot-Wheels-4-Lane-Elimination-Trackset/dp/B007RDGHP0/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1420219738&sr=1-1&keywords=hot+wheels+4+lane+raceway
I appreciate any help y'all might be willing to throw my way and
