With the holidays quickly approaching we have been on the lookout for awesome new toys that will eventually find their way under the tree this year. Today we’re reviewing the MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition Racing Track, a new twist on the Max Flex RC racing track line from Skullduggery, known for their award-winning kid’s racing tracks.
If you’re familiar with the Max Flex line, you’ll know that these tracks are designed to be easy to set up and customize, allowing kids to use their imagination and build their racing tracks in just about any space! The MaxFlex 300 RC Combo Edition features a Glow In The Dark Flexible Track Set with 2 Remote Control Vehicles and Light-Trace Technology!
This set takes RC racing to new levels with over 25 feet of glow in the dark, fully customizable track and two RC Racers with Light-Trace Technology that leaves streaks of light behind them as they race in low light!
Check out this quick video we made that shows you what the track looks like in full light and low light!
What We Love:
The track is easy to set up right out of the box. There are plenty of pieces included to create customized tracks. We were able to set up some basic tracks to start with and then build on to them to make the race more challenging as we got the hang of these RC racers.
RC set up was also simple, just requiring us to put batteries in the controllers and allow the cars to charge for a few minutes while we built the track. I love that the cars can be stored on the top of the controllers, keeping everything together, and that the car/controller has an auto-off feature when it hasn’t been used for 30 minutes – extending the already great battery life!
Racing the cars is a ton of fun, with the controllers being responsive and working really well. These little cars are fast! Things got really fun when we started shutting out the lights. The track itself glows in the dark, and once the cars starts racing the Light-Trace Technology (which is a small light under each RC car) leaves bright neon streaks behind them as they drive.
The result is a really cool looking display and an extra exciting race! We have clocked countless hours playing with this set already. My kids love RC cars and race tracks and the MaxFlex RC just adds so much fun to the experience thanks to the flexible track and light streaking racers! This is definitely one toy I see getting years worth of use from!
