Traditional radio-controlled cars look and act pretty much like the real thing, only in miniature. Fire Racers look and act pretty much like traditional radio-controlled cars, only in miniature.
They have proper rubber tyres and a great job has been done in making the models look incredibly similar to their full-size, road-going cousins. Oh, they go like the clappers and the steering is excellent, too.
They can be used indoors and out, and with two different frequencies available you can have proper races around the obstacle courses and racetracks we recommend you build for them (cushions, open-book bridges, figure of eights around table legs etc). Much fun is to be had with desktop demolition derbies but be careful of the cold cups of coffee.
