Cool. I remember beating the shit out of each other with those hot wheel track sections, those things stung. I like those little black stations they have on the track that launch the car further. Our old asses has to pick up the car and push it again.

Yeah, they didn't have those little booster things when I was kid. Damn that must have been an expensive track to build!

At first, I thought it was just the same few track sections over and over...then it goes down the stairs and around the block! Awesome! And for a good cause as well!

I was wondering exactly the same thing.

Unless he had a whole fleet of cameras, I'd say it probably took a couple days of setup, and a whole day of filming with a couple different cameras.

I'm going to guess that might not be one continuous track. It might be, but I would think you would need a spare garage to store all that track when you don't want to fall down the stairs every morning. Still very cool. I never had any track, just pushed the cars around. A lot easier to pick up later. Lol

Exactly what I was thinking. He really only needs as much track as you can film in one shot. Great idea though for a good cause. I bet it was really fun for the family to do together.

I saw this on Autoblog last week and immediately thought the same thing. I counted just over 120 of the boosters used ont eh track, and at $20 a pop ($2400!) I don't think so. Plus it was all shot with one camera yet the angles change mid-action so it's a few hours worth of video editing with lots of track setup.

After 5 minutes the kids got bored and beat the shit out of each other with the track sections. I'm with Under200 on this...those pieces were more for fighting than track building back in the day
