The Air Hogs 1/24th scale NASCAR replica RCs come in four different paint & sponsor schemes, a Jimmy Johnson Lowes car, Tony Stewart Office Depot car, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. cars in National Guard and Amp Energy get-ups. These are inexpensive, but come with no batteries, so I recommend that any RC Maniac parents keep a stock of rechargeable AAs on hand.

Let's see how this car actually performs...

Test & Review Video



This Air Hogs NASCAR replica car drives exactly how I would want it to, for the age range it's targeted towards. Any faster and I'd fear it could get crashed too much indoors, or too quickly & easily driven all the way down the driveway and out into the street if played with outside. As it is, with its fast, responsive steering, it's a hoot to carve around corners, and it has enough power to drive on slight inclines and even low carpet. I'm pretty happy with this one & wouldn't ask for more.
