Hot Wheels Video Racer Review

I will come clean, I was a Hot Wheels addict as a kid.  Not for nothing, but I clearly had the coolest jumps, tracks and crashes that anyone had ever seen.   But there was the problem - not everyone saw my super cool Hot Wheels setups and runs.  Some of my friends actually doubted me click to continue...
