Radical Racers are toy cars for children that are equipped with suction turbines. These turbines allow the car to stick to any surface it's racing on, including the floor, walls, and ceiling. This is an alternative to having them on a fixed track that always goes to the same place. With these cars, kids can play all over the house, chasing the car from room to room. They can use the multidirectional remote control to spin the car around 360 degrees or race it with other cars. Radical Racers really get kids moving.

Features

  • Super Suction Turbine

    The cars have what is called a super section turbine on the bottom, and this is the technology that allows them to stay on any stable surface without falling. They can drive anywhere, including the walls and the ceiling, and on furniture. This allows children to go all over the house with the Radical Racers, instead of staying in one place the way they would if the cars were racing on a track.

  • Multi-directional Remote

    The remote control that comes with the cars is multidirectional, meaning it is capable of spinning the car in any direction, including around 360 degrees. You can even do donuts on the walls and ceilings. The car will go under and through things too, so kids can make up obstacle courses to race each other through and compete with each other.

  • Real Lights

    The headlights and taillights on these cars are completely real. They are exactly the same materials and design that is used for real cars. Naturally, they also work as efficiently as real lights and are suitably bright, especially at night.

  • Aerodynamic Design for Speed

    These care are specially designed in such a way that maximizes the speed of the vehicle, so you can get to "the speed you need". They are also constructed in such a way that minimizes the turbulence while the car is racing.

  • Durable Construction

    The cars are meant to be well-constructed and are also apparently very durable. They're made of super polytech, which is supposed to be a very solid material. The product should last for some time unless kids are really hard on it and deliberately destroy it.

  • Rechargeable Power Plant

    There's a rechargeable power plant in the vehicle, which makes charging it up incredibly easy and effortless. You'll literally never run out of power with this unit.

Pros

  • Keeps Kids Off the Internet

    These days kids start spending their time on tablets or even computers at a fairly young age. This keeps them staring at a screen, and of course sedentary, instead of getting up and playing or going outside. Radical Racers is a stimulating toy for kids that will have them doing something different than sitting on a tablet or computer all day.

  • Race Anywhere, Anyplace

    These racers expand the use of the toy from one room and one place to anywhere, anytime. Kids can use these all over the house, in any and all of the rooms, and presumably outside too although that is not mentioned at all on the website. It gets kids more physically active than if they were just sitting in one place with a train set. This also means the toy is portable and can be taken to other locations to be used as entertainment.

  • Keeps Children Occupied

    This is an interesting, fun toy that is likely to keep children occupied and stimulated for long periods of time. The product could also be very useful to mothers who may want their children occupied at certain times of the day so that they can get other things done.

  • Three Color Options

    The cars don't only come in one color; there are three options. These are red, black, and blue. Not the most exciting color options in the world, but it's always nice to be given some selection.

  • Free Shipping

    In this case, the company is covering all shipping and handling costs for your purchase of Radical Racers. It's not a massive amount saved, but shipping can come to a decent amount of money so this could be a 10-20% savings total on a product that is inexpensive to start with.

  • Cheap Price

    This product is really priced very low. If it interests you at all, you can't really lose at such a low cost. Most of the competing products are more expensive than this product, although there are a few that have a comparable cost. The price may even call into question the high quality of the materials.

Cons

  • Will Dirty the Walls

    These little cars are going to go all over dirty floors and then ride up the floors and the walls dragging dirt on their wheels. You could end up with little track marks all over the house, which would look terrible and would be hard to clean. You'd also end up with dirt from the floors all over the furniture. This doesn't seem like the ideal toy for the children of a busy mom who doesn't need added cleanup.

  • Can Break Things

    These cars are going to roam all over the place, and the kids won't be watching them every second. They're going to smash into things and knock them over. Possessions will break. That will make a mess and possibly destroy valuable items.

  • Not an Ideal Toy for Night

    The company markets this as an ideal toy for kids to use at night since you can then see the headlights and taillights so clearly. However, the last thing a mother wants at night is to get her children more revved up. At that hour kids should be winding down, and the Radical Racers would not help with that at all. It sets up a situation where kids will want to play at night and mothers will have to turn them down.

  • Can Cause an Accident

    The Radical Racers could easy startle someone and lead to a bad fall or some other unfortunate accident. They can go really fast and you don't know they're coming, which could throw someone off.

  • Marketed as Indoor Toy

    These are marketed as indoor toys - presumably, you need a smooth surface. The toy keeps children inside instead of drawing them out into the fresh air.

  • Kids All Over the House

    Many mothers don't want the kids running all over the house, but would rather they stay and play in one or two rooms. This way there will be a mess in several rooms.

  • 18 and Older to Order

    There's no reason why a teenager couldn't order this product. This stipulation makes no sense at all.

Where's my Cars

Order in May 2020. You took my money on June 5th 2020. Never received a damn thing. Can't get through to customer service if there is customer service. I want my money back and you have 48 hrs to respond or I turn this over to proper authorities. Scam.

Rip-off

I ordered a Radical Racer on July 16th for my grandson. Have yet to receive it or ANY email stating where he'll it is. I tried tracking it, calling customer service (on hold for over an hour), and DHL shipping to find it. Nothing. This company sucks. Just another rip-you-off and run piece of crap!

Retired

I started to order the radical racer and I chose the blue car, I reached the next step and entered my credit information and then the system did not allow me to add the delivery address. I had already entered zip code 60415. I could not go to the next step, so I held on to the phone for about 45mts/1 hour and was told to call back so you can find my order. I am anxious as you have my credit card information. I was placing my order for only one item the blue radical racer. Please call me back cell708-940-0620, so I can let you have the delivery information. I spoke to Jane.

Dissappointed

My grandson saw this on TV and had to have it, he got it with his own money. He was so excited! First we never received a confirmation until weeks passed, and I got an email that it was on the way. When we finally received it, we charged the cars immediately, and to our disappointment they didn't live up as advertised. One car didn't work at all and was missing a wheel. The other two we're hard to control with the remote, they did whatever they wanted. Neither of the two went on the wall, I tried every wall in the house, even wall, textured, doors and nothing, they kept falling off. I plan on returning them, depending on the postage. So disappointing!

Charged Without Completing Checkout

I can't speak to the quality of the product as I haven't received it yet. I saw the infomercial late last night and went on to order a racer for my nephew. I input the credit card information, but never actually confirmed the order by clicking submit as the site kept prompting me to buy an upgraded option instead. The constant upsell left me with a sour taste so I closed the site on the order review page before clicking the submit button. A back or cancel option was not provided. This morning I awoke to find that my card had been charged despite having never completed the order. I called the number listed, but as is the case now with COVID19 no one was there and I was directed back to yourorderconfirmation.com. I am going to wait it out in good faith and see what happens as I got a confirmation email along with the charge, but the experience was extremely concerning.

Broken Car

Very disappointing, first off it took almost 3 weeks to receive it, 2nd off you try to call customer service never an answer nobody ever picks up, a bunch of CRAP! Finally received it and it is broken and I should not have to pay shipping and handling to send back because it is broken. Never got a hold of anyone, So Watch Out Everyone!

Radical Racers Toy Cars

May 22, 2020
Radical Racers out of Canada are doing some fishy things with my money. Ordered May 16, 2020. Charged my card, then canceled one of my orders on May 18, 2020 without emailing me. Have not returned funds. Now, the other order is back ordered without ever emailing me. Are they a third world company? Their website is wonky. Very disturbing. If they can run ads on TV, by God they afford a better website. There’s no way to contact them. https://www.buyradicalracers.com/?mid=10490006.
