So, I was at Wal-Mart earlier, going through their clearance section, and I found this!
So it's most obviously not a famous or high end set. Definitely not. But it's still awesome and I got two sets for a total of $22! You just can't beat that!
But I have to say, the greatest thing is not the fact that I got two insanely cheap slot car sets. It's the fact that it works great. It works exactly like any other slot car set that we had growing up, the first thing we all did was mash down the controller as hard as we could and watch the cars fly off the track at speeds we thought were in the triple digit ranges. then, we "grew up" and started dating real life people and somehow lost our tracks in the pursuit of...well, happiness.
Something else I absolutely loved was the so very obviously NASCAR-esque car that came with it all dressed up in #2 attire. Wait...what's that wearing a #8 designation? You're damn right! It's a Ford Escort Cosworth! Complete with rally attire and everything! How could I not buy this?
The greatest thing about all of this is the fact that my 3 year old already gets it. She's actually got more steady hand that I and falls of the track a lot less. But that's probably because I have reverted to eight year old me and am looking for that triple digit speed launch off the track.
