Back in february of 2020 hot wheels unveiled the 164 scale rc tesla cyber truck alongside the 400 110 scale version, like the actual cyber truck reactions, were immediately split with many commenters painting it, and this was on a hot wheels official post peg warmer. Hardly the pre orders went fast, delivery was pushed back until december and then pushed back again until may of 2021, but in february this year we started to hear about it popping up at target as it turns out. It was officially available march 1st, but several people were able to acquire one days early and fuel the social media buzz about its surprise arrival. Faktisk, it seems like it was a shock to those who pre ordered as well. I hope for their sake, when the pre order is finally shipped. It has unique packaging and a black controller like the prototype from the reveal, if i’d spent over a hundred dollars for a quote, pre order on ebay only to be shipped the target version. I wouldn’t be happy if you pre, ordered one from mattel and you got an update. Let us know in the comments i stopped at my local target on released it, but sadly they were sold out. So imagine my surprise went back a few days later and there were four hanging there elliot handler. The creator of hot wheels was winking at me from heaven review the cyber truck. He said: Okay, Okay, each package includes one vehicle, one controller and one ramp that you can use to have your rc enter the hot wheels track builder system from a hard floor.
It won’t really work on carpet. The controller is powered by four double a batteries. Each car has a permanently installed lithium ion battery inside and is charged via this charge, cable hidden inside the back door on the controller make sure the vehicle’s power is switched to off. The lightning bolt will remind you which way to have the switch, then press the center charge, slash pair button and wait 20 minutes for the initial charge. The light will blink while charging and turn solid briefly when ready after some play. If the red led blinks quickly or the car responds slowly it’s time to recharge under the right joystick, there are two alignment buttons you can use. If your car doesn’t go straight when driving forward the left, joystick only moves forward and backwards, there’s also a boost button. Hot wheels playfully calls this sport and the regular speed chill to play switch on the power button under the car press, the charge pairing button to activate the controller. The led should light solid and you can test it by pressing one of the joysticks it’s rear wheel. Drive and the vehicle turns by alternating the direction those two wheels rotate. The speed does vary with how far you press the joystick but it’s not easy to control at slow speeds. If you press the steering joystick hard, the car just does donuts. I made this layout with no boosters, kickers or gravity drop ins. Looks like i need a little more power to push this gate open got ta, make sure i don’t go too fast around these hard 90 degree turns oops must not equip those overpasses on correctly for the bank turnarounds and the loops.
You almost need to use the boost or sport button, especially because what i did here doesn’t leave much room for getting up to speed Music. It does take a little finesse, but with a few minutes of practice, you can make it through your whole circuit. A few times in a row like any other hot wheels track layout, though you’ll need to have a little patience and be willing to change out pieces of your layout. If you find your cars aren’t, making the same spots over and over at this point, the possibilities are endless. Just get out all of your track builder pieces leave those boosters and kickers behind and see what you can build. Look in the description for the various target and amazon links, and since we have a spare cyber truck – and we know how hard they were to find why don’t you join the conversation over on instagram at common collected, send us a dm. Maybe we can work out a trade.
