Double-loop drag race sets are a staple of the early Hot Wheels years. In 1969 we have the Double-Dare Race Action Set. For 1970 there is the Mongoose & Snake Drag Set plus the Twin ‘Chute Action Set (UK). And 1971 brings us the RRRumblers Daring Duo Set (UK) and the RRRumblers Rip Roarin’ Set (Australia).
The difference between the Daring Duo and Rip Roarin’ Sets is the finish gate. The Daring Duo Set uses the automatic finish gate…
and the Rip Roarin’ Set uses a standard finish gate with the contact arms cut off to allow the taller RRRumblers motorcycles to pass through.
The Daring Duo Set includes 28 feet of orange track, 10 joiners, 1 universal clamp, 1 start gate, 1 automatic finish gate and 2 daredevil loops.
Here’s a run down the Daring Duo track.
Here’s a video of the Daring Duo Set in action.
So there you have it. The 1971 RRRumblers Daring Duo Set from the U.K.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
