  • That said, the advantage of slot cars was that not being able to steer your racer meant it was also impossible to steer off course. Hot Wheels AI works the same way, but instead of a guide pin on the bottom of the two included cars, there’s a sensor that reads a colored pattern printed on the track sections, which ensure your vehicle always stays in the race. But the AI that helps keep your vehicle in competition and on the track can also be idaled back to increase the challenge.

    File this one in the “cool files”. Batman and Robin, er… Bruce and Dick, racing slot cars with Alfred and Aunt Harriet. And believe it or not, they raced slot cars on the batman TV show more than once. The proof is below.

  • A slot car (sometimes, slotcar or track car) is a powered miniature auto or other vehicle that is guided by a groove or slot in the track on which it runs. A pin or blade extends from the bottom of the car into the slot. Though some slot cars are used to model highway traffic on scenic layouts, the great majority are used in the competitive hobby of or slot racing.

    You can think of the Hot Wheels AI race system as an updated version of the slot cars many of us grew up with, except it’s better in so many ways. The slotted track has been replaced with flat modular track sections that can be configured in over 40 different race layouts, and the larger racers—measuring in at 1/32-scale—can now be steered back and forth to help overtake an opponent. It’s no longer just a drag race.

    Slot cars are usually models of actual automobiles, though some have bodies purpose-designed for miniature racing. Most enthusiasts use commercially available slot cars (often modified for better performance), others motorize static models, and some "scratch-build", creating their own mechanisms and bodies from basic parts and materials.
