  1. Not bad. Thank you for the info. I've ben looking at a DC speed controller actually. I've seen power supplies like that and would maybe try one.

  2. This would be great for the AW Drag Strip sets. No longer needed for Tomy, now that the new Tri Power power packs. BTW, I want that Viper car from Hack Video 1 — where can I get one?

  3. Sorry, but I liked the 1st generation T-Jet cars the best.  It took some skill to race these instead of just putting them on the track and watching them go round and round.  It took more skill to race the cars.

  4. Terry, when making these videos, you need "BRIGHTER" bodies so we can see them as they go around…..Dennis

  5. Hey, just found this site. Wish to thank you for taking the time to help share your wisdom. At 60, I have rediscovered the only hobby that takes me back to when I was about 8, when I got my first 4 lane T-Jet set. I still have 2 of the original cars and race them from time to time. Thanks again!

  6. the lifelike cars may have longer pins
    check and trim the pins if they are to long
    I think the lifelike track had a deeper slot?

  7. no comparison to the old T jet,AFX ,and Magna track Cars I have.We had a 4 lane track(1970s),and used a 12 volt car battery to power the track,Still hard to keep them on the track.

  8. Been using this type of power hack for a year and a half. Works great. Nice to be able to change voltage once in a while. Keep up the good work.
