-Hi I'm Wayne Cunningham, editor of CNET Car Tech I usually review full-sized cars. But today, I'm looking at something smaller. User Hot Wheels Stealth Rides new radio-controlled car from Hot Wheels. This operate on infrared controller and the unique thing about these is that they are compact and they fit in their own controller case, pull the knob, and sliding away. Hot Wheels design these so boys can take them anywhere and play with them all over the place. They have little buttons on the top of this case here, which serves as the remote control. So, you merely push both buttons forward to make the car go forward or push button back to make the car go back. Push them to the side makes the car go in a circle and with this racer car, one button back and car go forward and the car goes in a circle. Similarly the treaded vehicle, the tank which is another style of car, this has treads and similarly both buttons forward makes you go forward and both buttons back makes you go back. Now, both of these---- each of these cars can operate on one of two channels; so, kids can race them by having on one channel and one on a different channel. The range is about 15 feet for the remote and we tested it up to 20 feet, although the control gets a little spotty at that point. Operating time is about 45 minutes. These things operate on watch batteries basically. There is 3 in the car, 2 in the controller, but you will need a screw driver to get at them. Right now, there are 2 cars available, the racer and the treaded vehicle. And in October, Hot Wheels is coming out with the Batman Tumbler. These cars go for about $25.
