Great to see how the toy companies of the past are adapting to the modern tech. I'd've loved something that timed my Scalextrix cars as as a kid. Proper race rules. Love it.

These things always used to fly off the road but it was always fun setting up the track around the living room.

Nothing like the whirr and smell of overcooking electric motors in the air.

I used to love these kind of cars as a kid. Glad to see they're still kicking.
