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

Help Lightning McQueen win the Piston Cup when you control the racing action with the Disney/Pixar Cars 3 Racing Series Lightning McQueen. This R/C car looks just like the number 95 racecar as seen in the movies. And when you wield the controller, you can make Lightning McQueen drive in all directions. 

The remote has a throttle that sends the car forward and backward. There's also a knob on the side that changes the direction of Lightning's wheels, either left or right. So if you want Lightning to make a forward left turn, pull back on the throttle and turn the knob toward you. If you want Lightning to make a backward right turn, push forward on the throttle and turn the knob away from you.

Is It Fun?
This is a pretty cool R/C car that kids are going to have a lot of fun driving around. Part of the fun of Cars is the racing action, and this Lightning McQueen delivers that high-speed action, allowing kids to recreate favorite movie race scenes or make up their own races. Because this car travels really fast, you'll probably want to play with it in a large open area to ensure that you have the space to more easily navigate it through whatever racecourse you set up.
Who It’s For
The Disney/Pixar Cars 3 Racing Series Lightning McQueen is for ages 4 and up, though it might be difficult for young kids to control the vehicle. Fans of Cars will like controlling the racing action with this R/C vehicle.
What To Be Aware Of

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.

The car requires three AA batteries, and the remote requires two AAA batteries, which are not included.

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 Jackson Storm and Dinoco Cruz Ramirez. Each is sold separately.
