EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
The Cars 3 Turbo Charge Lightning McQueen from Thinkway Toys is a Lightning McQueen radio controlled car. It includes a 12-inch Lightning McQueen vehicle, and a full function 2.4 GHz multi-channel radio control. Using the controller, kids can make McQueen speed forward, zoom backwards, and turn right or left. The only instructions are those on the box but we found it easy enough to figure out even without instructions. Four AA batteries for the car, and two AAA for the controller are required and not included. An on/off switch is located on bottom the the toy. Turbo Charge Jackson Storm is also available, and sold separately. Kids may want to get them both for some real racing action, and challenge his competitor to the race of the century. 
Is It Fun?
Lightning McQueen fans can control the racing action with this radio controlled car. The 12-inch Lightning McQueen vehicle features character details like those in the movie, and seems well made and durable. Ours bumped into the wall many times, and is still in perfect condition. The only instructions are those on the box but we found it easy enough to play with. It's a cool car for Cars 3 fans, and would make a great first RC for a child. Turbo Charge Jackson Storm is also available, and kids can collect them both for racing head to head.
Who It’s For
The Cars 3 Turbo Charge Lightning McQueen is recommended for kids ages 4 years old and up. It will appeal to Lightning McQueen, and Cars fans whether they have seen Cars 3 yet or not. It's larger size, durability, and easy to operate control make it a great contender for a child's first RC car.
What To Be Aware Of
The only instructions included are pictured on the box. The car can move forwards, backwards, left or right. You will need four AA batteries for the car, and two AAA for the controller, which are not included. An on/off switch is located underneath the car. 


For best results, play with this car on a flat, smooth floor. 


A Cars 3 Turbo Charge Jackson Storm is also available, and sold separately.
