Robert Gullotto (Ruby): oh man I remember these in the living room. These things would get kicking right. That sound always made me think these bad buys would just burst into flames or something hahaha.
madfun510: OMG my dad bought me this same set for Christmas back in 93 this was a kick as gift I still have it till this day
charimanxthefirst: In my youth I could have run that track much faster. You should be maxing out on that long straight away. Also that cork screw going into the loop could be hit much faster.
Dennis Hagans: just wish they stacked curves and loop the loop wasn't in it
Satyan “Satu” Patel: Ah... I love this. Loved the Tyco slot car stuff growing up. Tried finding it for my kids, but went with a Carrera set due to cost and availability. Just can't get enough of this stuff.

001GenLee: They don't make stuff like this n e more. :( Back in the 80's, I remember walking into Toys R Us & seeing this set, along with : The Dukes of Hazzard slot car set, Knight Rider, The Fall Guy, The A-Team, Super Cliff Hangers, Cliff Hangers Glow-in-the-Dark, Tyco Turbo Bandit slot car set, & there were others i'm sure. Thank God I was a kid of the 80's and NOT now days. LOL Kids now days don't have cool toys like what was back then, what a shame! :(
Daniel Tyler: Hi, nice job. I was wondering if you might be kind enough to tell me the secret. I realize that once you get X amount a views that people watch it for the same reason I did, because it is there. But I have a friend who mounted a mini cam to the bottom of his RC plane and buzzed his neighborhood. Super funny, great editing and production, great music over dub, exciting take off and landing. And the last I checked I think he had almost 200 views. How did you get almost one hundred thousand views! Thanks in advance.
Karaoke Vic: About 30% of the views come from the suggested videos section of YT, another 20% come from people searching for the video, and about 50% are from mobile devices. The video has been up for about 2 years collecting views...
Daniel Tyler: How did you get eighty thousand views?
Karaoke Vic: I'm not sure if you're just asking if you need one or whether yours might be bad. You do need one to run the track. If you have a power pack you'll need to test it with a multimeter to see if it works. The other problem with these tracks is that the connections often get corroded. There are quite a lot of suggestions on how to fix this in the comments on my original track video.
TeamDadandSon: I can't get mine to work to I need the power pack?
Karaoke Vic: This is the Tyco 440X2 NiteGlow Championship set with the addition of the loop. They are hard to find now, but well worth it for the fun! Thanks!
Eric Hooker: What model track is that or where could I get a model like that. That's awesome
RyanXcasting: you can also polish the rails with a piece of notebook paper until they shine. anywhere they are not shiny they are not making good contact. do not polish with grit sandpaper because it will eat the rails to the point where they are too low to make contact with the brushes on your cars. also put rubbing alcohol on the tires and do burnouts before racing them to burn off the grimy stuff from the tires. or just buy new tires.
Karaoke Vic: Also, you could try cleaning the rails on the top of the track pieces that are troublesome with some really fine emery paper. I've found these are more often the problem than the connectors. Generally, if you have intermittent dead spots all over the track, the connectors are working and the top is oxidized. If you have one bad connection on the end of a piece of track, the car will normally go around pretty good until it gets to that piece..
Karaoke Vic: Don't know your skill level, but when you say the connectors look good, realize that electrical connections are different than just having a good appearance. If there is any tarnish or oxidation on the contacts they still might look "good" and not have a good electrical connection. The best way to check the connections is with a meter, but I know not everyone owns one. Try cleaning the contacts with a rubber eraser and see if they get shiny. If they do, then they are probably dirty.
