Overall, this is a good set that my son (10) and I enjoy. The cars and track are bigger than the slot-cars I had when I was a kid (30 years ago). My thoughs:
The track, with its banks and loops, is challenging to the beginner, in that you have to get your speed just right to stay on the track and complete a lap. If at first you don't succeed, don't blame the set. Keep trying and improve your skill. It will be worth it once you get it right.
Unfortunately, the track provided, as far as I can tell, allows no other track design other than the pictured one, and a very simple oval. More options would have been better.
The instructions on how to assemble the track and use the cars are picture-only, and too brief. They do not explain important parts of getting the set to work, such as the electrical contacts on the cars are sensitive to dirt and having the correct shape. Doing a little reading on the internet for this product will make up for the poor instruction book.
After 2 weeks both cars are not working.
