EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

In the new movie Cars 3, there's a new crop of Piston Cup racers looking to knock Lightning McQueen off his pedestal. And one of those racers is Jackson Storm. Bring this high-tech racecar to life with the Disney/Pixar Cars 3 Racing Series Jackson Storm. This car has a sleek black design with the IGNTR logo and the number 2.0 on it. Use the matching remote control to send Jackson driving in all directions.

Pushing the throttle forward and backward sends Jackson going forward and backward, too. There is also a knob on the side that controls the direction of the car's wheels. So, if you want Jackson to make a forward left turn, pull back on the throttle and turn the knob toward you. If you want Jackson to make a backward right turn, push forward on the throttle and turn the knob away from you.

Is It Fun?

Kids are really going to like driving around the new movie's antagonist and creating all sorts of Lightning versus Jackson races at home. This gives kids the high-speed racing action of the Cars movies, allowing them to recreative favorite movie scenes or make up their own racing stories. The car travels really fast, so you'll want to use this in a large area to give you plenty of space to navigate without hitting obstacles.

Who It’s For
The Disney/Pixar Cars 3 Racing Series Jackson Storm is for ages 4 and up, but we think older kids will have an easier time using the remote. Fans of Cars will like controlling the racing action with this R/C vehicle.
What To Be Aware Of

You'll need three AA batteries for the car and two AAA batteries for the remote. Batteries are not included.

It might take kids a little time to get the hang of using the remote control. It can be confusing when you want the car to go forward so you push forward on the throttle and it goes backward, but it does get easier to control.

If you need to realign the wheels, there is a steering lever underneath the car that will do that.

Additional Racing Series R/C cars include the characters of Dinoco Cruz Ramirez and Lightning McQueen. Each is sold separately.
