How it works

Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is an award-winning racing set that has entertained kids and some adults for years. Not only can the tracks glow in the dark, but the cars that come with the set leave behind streaks as they whiz around the track. The cars can go forwards or backward and the tracks are compatible with other car racing sets so you can add to the tracks and make them even longer. The cars are run by a remote control that is wireless and the remote control doubles as a charging station for the cars. Children who have played with the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers have been entertained for hours as they sit and watch the cars whiz around the track either in the light or in the dark. The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers are a great buy for any kid who loves to watch the cars whiz around and create tracks that are changeable and fun.

 

Design

Design

The design of the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is fairly simple like any other kind of car racing toy. The tracks are white and made of thick durable plastic. When the lights are turned off, the tracks glow in the dark, which makes kids very happy. Underneath the cars is an underlight that leaves behind a streak as the car whizzes around the track. The streaks can be seen during the day, however, they are most prominent when the lights are off and the room is dark.

There are two cars that come with the set and the cars are charged on a wireless charger that runs on batteries. The charger also doubles as the remote control for the cars, so everything you need for the cars is in one spot. The cars can also go backward on the track as well as forwards.

The set also comes with X Blox. X Blox are small building blocks that you can put under the track to raise it up so that it becomes more challenging for the car to get over the track or around corners. The X Blox are also used to elevate the track so that when the car runs through the loop, the track can be raised for the loop to be built.
The Tracks

The Tracks

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers set comes in a standard box with all the parts included. The entire set is about 46 feet of track. Other Tracer Racers sets come with more track if you have a bigger area in which you can build the set. The tracks of this set are deep set and have mini walls around the sides of the track so that the cars stay in place and do not fly out of or fall off of the track. This particular set’s track length is only 46 feet long. The tracks are easy to assemble and connect. The tracks lay in a figure eight configuration with the loop in the middle of the eight. The tracks come in several pieces, they connect at the ends through a snap peg system.

The male end of the track has two pegs at the end. The female end of the track has two openings for the pegs to snap into. All you have to do is slide the male end into the track so they are connected, and then all you have to do snap the pegs into the opening and the tracks will stay together seamlessly. The tracks connect completely flush so that the cars can whiz around the track and not be derailed by a separation in the track or a bump between the pieces. The loop connects in the same way, and the X Blox are also used to raise the track so that the cars can loop around and go underneath the track.
The Cars

The Cars

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers set comes with two cars. One car is blue and the other car is red. Both cars fit the track perfectly in the deep-set groove of the track and the cars can then fly around the track at top speed. The cars whiz around the track so fast, that if they were actual real racing cars, they would go at about 500 miles per hour. The cars move around the track very very fast.

Underneath the cars is a blue LED light that glows every time the car is activated to move. Because the cars move so fast, the light leaves behind a streak of blue light as the cars whiz around the track. In the light, the streak can be seen but not as prominent as when the lights are off and the room is completely dark. In the dark the blue light contrasts against the green glow of the tracks and the streaks are bright. The streaking adds another fun element to the racing cars as they appear to be going even faster and hover when the streaks can be seen.

The cars also have the capability to go backwards. Press the backwards button on the remote control and at a whim, you can change the direction of the car. Both cars are operated by the wireless remote control that comes with the set.
The Remote Controls

The Remote Controls

The cars of the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers are rechargeable so that they are always fully powered. The remote controls resemble a power drill in their shape in order for it to be easier for you to hold. There is a little trigger on the front of the remote control, and when it is pressed, you can make the car move, and it will move at a high rate of speed. There are switches on the remote control that allow you to change the direction of the car, so if it was going forwards you can switch it to going backwards and vise versa.

The remote control runs on four AA batteries. In order for both remote controls to work, you will need a total of eight AA batteries. It should be noted that when you buy the racing set that the batteries are not included. You will need to supply your own fresh batteries in order for the remote control to work. Without the remote control, the cars will not work.

The remote control also has a second function, and that function is to charge the cars. On top of the remote control is an opening that contains a wire. Reach into the controller and pull out the wire. The wire will then hook up to the car and charge it until it’s fully charged and ready to be used. In order to check if the car is fully charged, disconnect it from the charger and flip the car upside down. Pull the trigger on the remote control and when fully charged, the car’s underlight will blink indicating that is charged and ready to race on the track. It should also be noted that the remote controls are the most important part of making the set work at its full potential, so take extra good care of the remote controls and always have extra batteries on hand in case you need to switch the batteries out at a moment’s notice.
Competitive Play

Competitive Play

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is a great way to get kids to play together. Although the set is marketed for boys, girls can also get hours of enjoyment out of racing the cars. What the set does best is bring together children to play together and have fun together. Each child can get a remote control and a car and then place the cars on the track and race each other to the finish line. The cars can be run in separate directions or forwards and backwards depending on what kind of race you want to have. By giving kids these opportunities to play with each other, kids can begin to develop the social skills necessary to succeed in life by being able to feel comfortable in social settings.

Also, the art of competition also helps children perform better in school and work well on teams. So, not only will your child get fun times out of playing with the toys, but they will also get the opportunity to play with others and play well with others whether it’s friends or family as the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is a great way for parents and children to spend time together building the set and then eventually playing with it.
Awards

Awards

Due to its many benefits and unique glow in the dark design, the Max Traxx Tracer Racers has been the recipient of a few prominent awards.

Display

Display

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is a great toy to keep on display in your child’s toy room. Although it is easy to assemble and disassemble the parts, once the tracks are put together it is best to leave them. This way the tracks are always set up and your child can just sit and play when they want. The glow in the dark tracks will look nice at night when no one in in the room, and if your child chooses to keep the track in their room, the tracks can then double as a sort of dim night light for your child.

Either way, it becomes the focal point of the room and adds a bit of decorative flair to your child’s play area. The set is also a great idea for the toy collector who likes to open the toy and put it on display for all to see. The look of the set gives the scene a nostalgic feel as the set is that perfect display piece for a toy room as car racing sets are the quintessential toy that rounds out any toy display.
Price

Price

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is not priced too high for what you are getting. The price is not incredibly cheap, but it’s not too expensive either. Considering you are getting 46 feet of glow in the dark track coupled with rechargeable cars that leave streaks, the price seems pretty fair. Also, because the tracks are made of durable plastic and the cars can continue to be recharged, the tracks will last you as long as they possibly can, which can turn into years of enjoyment. The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers become a sort of investment for your family where they can have a toy that will last them for a long time through siblings and friends. If the tracks are out grown by your child they can be gifted to another child making their value even greater and the price even more affordable.
Conclusion

Conclusion

The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers are a great gift for boys or girls. No matter your gender watching the cars race around the track in the dark is a sight to be seen. The tracks glow green and the cars whiz around the tracks leaving behind a bright blue tracer line that adds to the already high speed at which the cars move. The toy promotes playing together and being competitive, which helps your child build and develop their social skills and learning how to play fair and play well with others. The Max Traxxx Tracer Racers is a great gift for the child who likes to build and change the difficulty of the track or the child who likes to race and play with other kids. With a price that is not too high but not super expensive, the Max Traxxx Tracer Racers can fit into the budget of any parent and bring your their child years of fun and joy.
