Real FX vs. Hot Wheels AI...

Hi all,

just a few moments ago, i saw a Batman car cover on Amazon for Hot Wheels A.I.

This should fit on Real FX cars, because I bought an defect HW set only for the shells and they fit (not vice versa); but more interesting there is a controller expansion with new sounds:

and I wonder if this fits in the Real FX controller. But even more interesting, there is a picture with a real crossing:

Although we have a Real FX crossover, this seems to be more "natural" to me and I would like to have one. But there is no further information even at Hot Wheels...
I wonder if the Real FX cars firmware is aware of these double lines... I will test it. For my understanding, they switch off the automatic - may lock the steering - and switch it on again by crossing the second double lines...
So since the first sight of the Real FX product web page, I do not see a progress...

The batman car is available from amazon in UK and germany aswell https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mattel-Wheels- ... B01N1UJWDF
(the price may be due to the electronic module - which I think only would be compatible with hotwheels controllers)

Also found the "Arkham" trackset with policecar and batman becoming available in the US,
this set has its own special track which splits the road into two smaller alleys,
personally I hope for some longer turns again (and perhaps some bluetooth/phone bridge if mattel stays in for the long run)

I tested Real FX cars together with the crossroads (they call it "T-Bone Crash Zone") from the Hot Wheels 2.0 Starter Set. They work fine except when you run them as Pace Car. In Pace Car mode the Real FX cars come off the track as they don't know how the crossroads work. The Hot Wheels cars that came with the set don't have this problem. I think the Real FX cars would need a firmware update to handle this.
