Hot Wheels

Insanely Long Toy Car Track

Insanely Long Toy Car Track

A few years back, Trackapalooza built what is likely the longest Hot Wheels Sizzlers track ever. Measuring in at 1969 feet long, we’re amazed that the cars had enough power to make it all the way around the fat track. Time-lapse build videos here and here.

DIY Cardboard Hot Wheels Loop

DIY Cardboard Hot Wheels Loop

While you can certainly just go buy a Hot Wheels set, Mini Gear thinks its more fun to build your own track from scratch. He proves yet again that with cardboard, popsicle sticks, hot glue, and rubber bands, you can make just about anything with enough time and effort.

Hot Wheels Corkscrew Ramp

Despite the idiotic sound effects, the corkscrew jump in James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun is still one of the greatest car stunts ever. Wekster’s Geeky Stuff designed a 3D printed ramp which lets Hot Wheels cars perform the same trick. Download the STL file here.

The Mad Track Brothers put some flammable cargo on a Hot Wheels car, then let it loose to spin through numerous loops on their twisty Darda track. It’s a cool idea, but the best part is the long-exposure image they captured of the car’s fiery ride. More here.

Leno Checks out the Darth Vader Car

Jay Leno’s Garage talked to Hot Wheels’ designer and builder about the fully functioning life-size replica of the Darth Vader toy car. It’s amazing how Leno got through such a lengthy interview while barely knowing anything about Star Wars. Test drive at 17:13.

Hot Wheels Double Loop

The Hot Wheels jump stunt was impressive, and we rather enjoyed Top Gear’s buggy loop – but that was nothing compared to this stunt with two cars racing through a double loop at the same time.
