May the maligned FTE2s find success here where the walls are unclimbable. But only if a curious toyhead would drop some in the mail. Only FTE to be in a race here was a "Fast Fish" last year that crapped out early and was replaced. Have a couple 458s as replacements for last-place cars after the halfway point in the current series to bring up the tail.

I've got new FTE's on my Astro Funk on the Downhill circuit and as fas as I know it hasn't flown off the track yet...and it's not too heavy.

I'll have to do some testing soon

I did a little expermenting of my own this weekend with the new FTE wheels...and I'll have to say I don't like them!

The gold sections protrude from the outside of the wheel and actually rub on the sidewall of the orange track.
So if the car runs along one side of the track or the other it's getting slowed down by the wheels.

I was testing a Ferrari California and it tended to run along the right side of the track and you could hear the wheels rubbing.

lame!

I'm hunting what is left of the older FTE cars in the stores now.

I put those FTE 2's on a Super Van that I loaded with weights. The good news is it has won some races. The bad news is, It crashes in the transition from the downhill to the flat straight away and wins the races sliding down the track upside down on its roof. I assumed that the track needs some support under the track in the transition due to the extra weight of the van. I have a Funny car that has the same problem. The track needs some fine tuning.
