Tamiya Mini 4WD Cars Have Come A Long Way

We used to play with Tamiya Mini 4WD cars when I was in primary school, along with a couple of other brands that were out there. They weren’t all that fast back then and we could follow them down a long gutter at school, turn them around and send them back to the finish line.

It seems that they have come a long way in the roughly 25 years since then. These cars are raced in Japan on guided, multi-lane tracks (they have no throttle or steering). They are now so fast that you can barely keep track of them. Here are a few videos of them I found on YouTube.
