Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scalextric C3128 BMW Mini Yellow/ Blue 1:32 Scale Twin Slot Car Pack (Toy)
I have a few Scalextric cars, but most of them are carefully tuned, finely detailed, and cost over £40 each, so I get a bit nervous letting my children (or other peoples!) use them. It was my wife's idea to buy some cheaper cars for the 'junior racers' to use, which is why we bought this boxed set of two MINIs.
I was expecting the performance of these cars to be a bit tame compared to some of my others, but I'm really surprised at how well they run and handle. I own a full-sized BMW MINI Cooper S too, and these Scalextric ones have a lot in common with it: solid construction, strong acceleration, go-kart handling, an impressive turn of speed, and bags of fun. The only downside is that the visual appearance is very simple with (for example) blacked-out windows and therefore no interior detailing. But if that doesn't bother you then these little cars should prove highly competitive, terrific value for money, and a real hoot...
