New HW track kit on shelves

Team164Bruno Friday, 2/7/2020

I've wanted to build a slalom style track but could never seem to find turns that were less than 90 or 180 degrees. Even discussed it with Brian Vaughn a few weeks ago. Well, looks like Mattel might've been listening because this new for 2020 kit has what appears to be 45 degree corners. Hallelujah!!! Bought both kits that were on the shelf at Target. 

Haven't opened the box yet so I've no idea if the pieces are decent or junk but will check them out more closely this weekend. Anyone here have any experience with this kit yet?

Sweet! If nothing else I can use them for measurements and still work on making some more gentle slalom curves rather than 90s. But nice to something other than the 180s...wonder if 2 turns sit well together for 2-lane action.

I expect a full review :)

  • Also nice to see a track set that's just track and not sure some sort of trick/gimmick track. Back to basics. — redlinederby
