It is really hard to get together and comes with only 1 car. Once we went and bought a second car for our son to race it with, he loves it.

OK is about the rating. A toy that requires many finger pushes, too fickle for the young and too tame for the older. Nice idea, could be a great toy if it was made better.

Fail... June 30 2013
By John S. Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I have a son who loves the Cars movies, and loves playing with cars of any sort. So I thought this would be a good thing to try.

Many people complain about the assembly instructions. I had no problems with them. It's very clear how it goes together.

Others have complained about how flimsy it is, so I was expecting really flimsy. It wasn't. Ours holds together just fine. Nothing ever came apart.

So assembly was quick and easy, only took a few minutes.

Where it's a fail is in the performance of the toy itself. The lower level track (only use it on hard floor, this will NOT work on carpet) actually lets the car do three to five laps around it. There are simply external boundaries for the inner track that force the car to run in a figure 8 underneath the track. That part works fine, the car just pushes against the plastic guide on the outside and that forces it to go where it should, there's no "track" on the bottom. But the top track, the one that has the "Winner's Circle" and everything, is a complete disaster. Even with me cranking it as fast as it will go, the car *sometimes* can complete a single lap up there. More often than not, the "trick" parts of the track screw things up and the car stops there...

The winners circle part has a spring inside that snaps it into place onto the track when you decide the race is over and press on the Piston Cup up there. Until that point it's rotated so as to not interfere with the race. Press the Piston Cup, the spring rotates it into place so it can capture the car. There's a small clear plastic piece that then pops up so the car finishes out the remainder of it's energy spinning around in it. That part works fine, but the odds on the car having any energy left to make it that far even on the first lap are poor...

If you have correctly sized cars that can sit in the "observation area", when the car spins in the winners circle, that makes little pieces of the track under the spectators move, so that it looks like they're moving up and down cheering. My son would've been more impressed had they simply had a plastic piece with a sticker of people that moved up and down since at least that would work more consistently.

All in all, a fail on the upper track, even if the lower track works alright. Definitely not worth the purchase. The lower track is the only reason it even gets two stars. If it were just the top track that was part of the race here, I would've given one star.

Horrible directions, disappointing performance June 24 2013
By Jason Kirkfield - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Mattel says, "Kids will love reenacting their favorite scenes from the movies." That's pretty much true, but all the reenacting will be in your child's imagination and not on this double decker speedway.

With rickety plastic construction and instructions that are miles from intuitive, it will be forty minutes before you are ready for the fun. And what fun it will be. Watching your car feebly attempt to navigate the contraption over and over. On the plus side, your child will develop Popeye muscles from cranking the motor incessantly.

Amazon's Recommended Age range is 3 to 7 years. The Manufacturer's Recommended Age is 3 to 10 years, which is ridiculous. A ten-year-old does not want to play with a dinky car toy. I would say even 7 years is pushing it, if not for the sheer dexterity needed to use this toy. Ultimately, you'll need TWO children: one to wind it up and one to hold the pieces together for some semblance of functionality, especially the Winner's Circle. You can't even crank sufficiently without moving the launching grid, thus negatively altering the alignment. Forget about seeing "stunts" on the track. What a joke.

The idiocy of this toy knows no bounds. The stickers, for example. The instructions include this Helpful Hint: "Apply labels before assembly by number as indicated." Unfortunately, the accompanying illustrations show only a fully assembled track. The individual stickers are numbered. The track pieces are lettered. There exists no alphanumeric means of matching which sticker goes on which piece, until *after* assembly is completed, contrary to the stated instructions.

From all accounts, the Stunt Racers sets are all disasters:
Cars Stunt Racers Dinoco Stunt Show Stunt Set

You can use multiple cars here but of course this set only comes with one. Additional Stunt Racers are ten bucks each. For example, here, here, and here. At least the car is fun, but forget about the track. Just rev the car (in either direction) and place it on a hard floor on an end or a side and watch it go. Just be careful: fingers can get easily caught in the spinning wheels.

The images on the box are all Photoshopped, no doubt because Mattel's engineers couldn't get it working long enough to take an actual photograph. If I had paid even twelve bucks for this toy, it would be going back to the store.

Shame on you, Mattel.

Plastic Pieces With Disney Logo and 1 Car: Everything Else and Fun Sold Separately July 18 2013
By Kyle Slayzar - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I remember playing with Matchbox cars and generic plastic tracks back in the 80s (everything was universal back in those days) and felt somewhat nostalgic when I had the opportunity to review the latest entry from the Disney Merchandising Empire, namely the Cars Speedway. Course I, a 6'5 29 year old male with graying hair, would have looked REALLY silly to my roommates trying to test this product by myself so I, as I had done with previous reviews on toys, enlisted the help of my neighbors, who have two children between the ages of 7-10 (I didn't ask, silly me) to test it out while I took notes nearby. It didn't take long for problems to occur starting with assembly.

The instructions were... well... crappy and exceedingly vague for anyone that doesn't assemble anything on a daily basis. The mother, who is about as normal as blueberry pie (hehe, South Pacific reference!), called me over within five minutes expressing frustration at what the instructions meant. The pictures were somewhat confusing even to me, and I used to install home theaters and home appliances at Best Buy. I had to violate my own prime directive of reviewing non-interference to assist the mother in construction and I quickly quipped that I certainly hope the writers of the manuals do not moonlight as 911 Operators ("Perform CPR by using your hands!")

Even with my help, it took approximately 30 minutes to assembly what should've have been a 10-minute job and we came to an even worse realization after that.

Now, I'm not a parent but I've moved around enough and spent enough time at other friend's houses as a child to know that most children's rooms are carpeted. It's a safety and comfort issue. Now, where does this fit into my review? Well, the product is basically a two-level track that starts on the bottom floor, that sits on the ground, and the cars are shot by a launcher up a ramp to the upper level or around a loop on the ground level. Problem is that the ground floor is little more than a plastic perimeter/guardrail that guides the cars and NOT an actual track. Also, there's a few inches of space between the launcher and the ramp to the upper level, meaning the car has to traverse across whatever surface it's sitting on (hardwood, carpet, your Dad's back, etc.) before using the remaining momentum to ascend.

In short, this thing does NOT work on carpet, ergo use in the vast majority of children's rooms.

Now, I was always under the impression that Disney had one of the best marketing divisions in the world, and yet, they overlooked THIS little problem that even I, a non-parent, figured out almost immediately (Hey, Disney Toy Execs! Did I mention that I am available to hire as a full-time bonafide toy tester? *waggles eyebrows sarcastically*).

The mother and I quickly relocated the speedway, which almost fell apart in our hands as it is very flimsy, to the kitchen table after promptly evicting the father, who was trying to enjoy a quiet game of Angry Birds on his laptop. After explaining the importance of testing the product to the angry father ("It's for science!") we reassembled the tracks and were about to test it on the hard surface of the table with the kids when we ran into another problem.

I handed the Steve- er... Lightning McQueen car to the youngest and reached into grab another one for the other-... what the? Where's the other car? The Speedway only comes with one car and replacement cars cost... well... you can get a few Matchbox cars for the same price. This wasn't good as you can't have a race without two cars otherwise it's a time trial and this is hardly Mario Kart. After a few seconds of thinking I asked the kids if they had any Matchbox cars to see if they could be used as substitutes. It was here that I found out WHY the Cars Stunt Racers were so expensive; they're proprietary and have pull-back motors! This means they are specifically designed for the track and vice versa so nothing else will work on the track as we learned VERY quickly.

I see your tricks Disney Toy Execs! You clever fatherless people you! THIS is how they tie you in to buy more stuff that is way overpriced and as flimsy as a bridge on the I-5!

Seeing how this was not going to work with two children and I was NOT going to travel to the nearest department store to spend money on more cars, we let the children take turns and they got bored within minutes as there was nothing more to do than turn an annoying crank and watch a single car do the same thing every time. It became very repetitive and I can just imagine how long the flimsy power crank would last as it sounded like something from Frankenstein with every passing turn.

Realizing that this toy would not last without a larger investment in more Disney Cars toys, I turned to the mother and asked a single question.

Me: "Do you guys have a Nintendo Wii?"
Mother: "Yes."
Me: "Mario Kart?"
Mother: "Of course!"
Me: "I challenge all of you!"
Kids: "Challenge accepted!"

I lost... darn kids...

All in all, this product is little more than an attempt by what I can only imagine as a bunch of pudgy, balding Disney Toy Execs to suck you in and buy more stuff. This toy is annoying to assemble, flimsy at best, and requires a larger investment to even begin to enjoy. Avoid.

DIS - A - POINTED :( July 31 2013
By Kathy W - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I got this for my great grandson and was really disappointed. I expected much much more from Disney. Granted, I haven't bought toys for a few years, but STILL! My 40 year old son (Joshua's grandfather) put it together and he and I played with it so I could write this review.

The track is made of very cheap flexible plastic, the blue upper track is like a rubber plastic - but thin. A dark grey launcher snaps into the side of the track so you can power up the car. You place the car in one of the two launcher compartments, crank, and press the button to release the car onto either the upper blue track or the lower green track. One of the 4 tires on the car is different. It has an allen key style hole that lines up with a tiny gear wheel so you can crank. The harder you crank, the more power the car has when you release it.

On the top (blue) track, there is a silver bar that is supposed to make the car look like it's going on its side (like one of those choke-and-barf roller coaster rides at the amuzement parks. If you don't crank the car enough, it gets stuck on the silver track piece. If you crank more, it passes across the silver piece and gets hung up a little further on the upper track. You would expect the little car to make several laps. Ha! Ain't happenin'

The lower green track actually works well.

All in all, way too much trouble to deal with. BTW, you have to put it together too. And if the child steps on it once, that's probably it! The only thing good about it is the cute little car and the bottom (green) track. The price on this is about $30, and I would be R-E-A-L upset if I had paid $30 for this. (I got this free, in the hopes I would do a review.) BTW #2, the gear where the car connects is plastic, as is the allen key style hole. I really think these two little parts should have been metal. I doubt the gears will last long in plastic, friction being what it is.

I hate to say it, but don't waste your money on this track. It's a bust. Just go buy a couple of cars and let the child race them on the linoleum floor.

My suggestion to the manufacturer would be a multi-lane flat track, where the child could have some fun and several cars could race each other. Also, for $30, I think the plastic could be a lot more durable. (Remember the old Playschool garage? -- THAT kind of plastic -- the OLD days when you could play with a toy for YEARS!)

Assembly does not require welding July 30 2013
By My Fake Name - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
*

This is a disappointment. Here are four reasons.

To use the lower track the set must be set on a horizontal, flat, solid, surface. Surfaces it won't work on include granite staircases (not horizontal or flat), sand, a black velvet painting of Elvis, and the upper tier of the green at the 18th hole at St. Andrews, which, by the way, you won't be able to use for more than about a minute anyway before all kinds of people wearing various comical forms of golfing attire come storming out of the clubhouse RIGHT STRAIGHT AT YOU and waving their arms and yelling at you to get off their precious old sod. Sheesh. For this sincere limitation I subtract one star.

Oh, and it also doesn't work on carpets or rugs.

*

The bottom track does have a chance of working on a solid surface such as an oak floor or a tabletop that's large enough and otherwise unneeded. Other surfaces it works on include a big mirror, a sheet of Lexan, the roof of a Humvee, and a freshly Zambonied ice skating rink, which, by the way, you won't be able to use for very long, at least not at Crown Center, before this sad-looking, slope-shouldered, 16-year-old comes slumping out onto the ice and tells you you can't set up your Disney/Pixar Cars Stunt Racers Double Decker Speedway there, "not even in a corner." Sheesh.

I found the instructions to be generally impenetrable upon the first reading and barely penetrable after the third, and I ended up relying on the pictures on the box and on this very Amazon description page, which shows several views of the assembled track from different vantages. For this I subtract another star. If you are still interested in this product, you will be pleased to learn that its assembly does not require tools such as a hammer or a cordless drill or an oxyacetylene welding torch.

*

The package comes with exactly one fewer than the minimum required number of cars to have a race, which according to my math is two. The arrangement of dual starting lines and dual launch buttons and dual tracks begs the participants to race one car against another, one on the ground and the other in the air, yet no matter how hard you search amongst the contents of the box, you will not find a second car to race against the one car you do find. To stage races one must drive to a store and spend money to get a second car or use Amazon or some similar online service and spend money to get a second car. Or you could do as I have done and fabricate one yourself, which I can now tell you takes a lot more time and money than you might originally have expected.

This failure is plainly stated by the manufacturer right on the box and on the Amazon description page, so it's not like customers can complain they were taken completely unawares, but it is still a failure, for which I subtract another star.

*

One more thing is, if you don't have the added enjoyment of a race, after a pretty short time this toy becomes boring. Except for this one deal where you can alter the upper car's course into a winner's circle, it's the same routine time after time. It's the same thing over and over, it becomes repetitive, it becomes repetitive, and it become repetitive, for which I subtract one star.

*

If your math is the same as mine, this baby has lost all the stars it can.
