Matchbox potential?

This is the Blue Shark from the latest batch of 50th Anniversary Superfast castings. Has anybody picked one up and sent it down the track?

I haven't even seen it on the pegs but I'll be grabbing one if I do so I can run it in the MB class at our club races. Thanks for the post!

Red Pill Racing has it on his youtube channel...believes it might be the fastest casting of 2019

  • I have the originals and they can go very well, which is why I have more then one.. When I get my hands on the 50ths.. they will go head to head... — madmax

That's a sweet casting. Gonna have to keep my eye out. I don't usually scan the MBX pegs, but guess I need to start!

I grabbed one of these from Wallyworld a few weeks ago. I remember this casting as a kid and always liked it's "Speed Racer" inspired styling. This is definately my favorite metal-on-metal car of the year, so far.

Still looking for this. None of the walmarts near me ever have one on the pegs.

Another one to look out for, if you're at Target, is the Mercedez Benz 6x6. It took down an FTE on my track (Ford Mustang GT) in a recent tournament I did and I was fairly impressed by it. That said, it did lose to the Fast Fish FTE in the next round. Still impressive.

  • I had this is white and it was pretty quick. I'm going to have to try to find this one — HotwheelShaun

Huh. I found some of these SuperFast castings at a Walmart and picked them up. The Blue Shark is HEAVY!! Haven't raced it yet, but man, i'm excited to do so. However, I was deeply disappointed to realize that the other 2 SuperFasts I got had Rubber wheels.... not so super fast I guess... ppreeetty disappointed there. Not so sure what i'll do with them.

  • I smell a wheel swap — redlinederby
  • prob not, I have too many wheel swap projects already and not enough FTEs to go around! — WorpeX

I finally found the Blue Shark yesterday a the Stop & Shop market. Overpriced @ $7 compared to WalMart but I couldn't pass it up. It got quicker after several runs down the track but I haven't tried it against anything yet.
