Since Mattel bought it there is really nothing bringing in new users from "hotwheels AI" sets to a "realfx" forum. (also the new users are probably very young)

On the plus side they are still adding to the franchise with mariokart:
https://play.hotwheels.com/en-us/shop/p ... -Track-Set
https://www.toysrus.com/buy/race-tracks ... -125702346

Similar to the batman plane crossing they also add new types of boards with a green shortcut in this set.

You seem to need a very large room to use it - I don't see this coming to Europe.

heh mariokart, fun!

Im wondering if the 'tool' for re-calibrating cars that go in circles, can be reverseengineered, or copied?

I need one.. :/

It is sad, I still have my set, and I still race it often. I run HWAI for the most part, and put a massive amount of work into it, custom body work, track, banking etc.

does the hotwheels cars not have the going in circles issue ever?

if they do perhaps the tool to fix it could be sourced from them?

Never, the worst steering issue required me to physically recenter the servo on a chassis, but that's it. Now that I think of it, the RFX steering isn't real precise, it will bounce around on the track, jerking down the straights etc. HWAI on the other hand, is much more proportional, and has some Exponential based on speed, so you can actually run a racing line.

Absolutely, I bought an RFX controller for my friend who didn't like the HWAI style, it works for everything you need it to
