Hot Wheels R/C Terrain Twister Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Hot Wheels R/C Terrain Twister is an R/C vehicle that can be used on land, in water, and through snow. The new Terrain Twister is actually a relaunch of one of Mattel's most popular R/C vehicles. It has a unique auger-like drive system that allows it to virtually move over any surface in its path, so it can be a boat, a plane, or a truck. The remote offers multi-directional control and can communicate with the vehicle from up to 65 feet away. The Terrain Twister comes with a charger and rechargeable battery pack for the vehicle.

Is It Fun?

The Terrain Twister is a versatile R/C vehicle. Kids will like that this vehicle can go over pretty much any surface. It's easy for kids to control and create lots of cool stunts.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Terrain Twister is for ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Two AA batteries are included for the transmitter. The vehicle runs on a rechargeable battery pack. If you need to replace it, only use Hot Wheels R/C TMH FlexPak NiMH battery packs.

The battery pack must be charged for 5.5 hours the first two times you charge it. After that, charging time will only be four hours.

We found that the Terrain Twister doesn't work that well on smooth surfaces. It needs a rougher surface to give it traction.
