Does anyone know what size the cars are? Hot Wheels? Micro Machines?

Anyone know where the game can be purchased in the US?

thanks!

The game came with 1/87scale Herpa miniature cars.

HotWheels and 2 other companies (who's name escape me at the moment) sell 1/87th scale cars in big chain stores such as Walmart.

But 1/144 scale actually are a better fit and the track looks less crowded. (Think MicroMachine scale).

The game is out of print and cannot be bought anywhere - unless you are lucky enough to find a copy of two stowed away somewhere.

As William explains are the 'original' cars really too large for the tracks. The designers simply bought a large surplus stock of hobby display model cars, which not only are out of scale for the track, but they are also very fragile - as they was never created to play with.

MicroMachines works mush better - even if they too are slightly too large for some spaces.
