The stunt loop can be configured into a standard 360 degree circle (The Swooper Loop) with the vehicles traveling in a straight line or it can be twisted into an oblong circle (The Big-Twist Loop) with the vehicles exiting at a 90 degree angle from their entrance.

For track time I’m going to use an orange 1971 RRRumblers Road Hog and a silver Camaro Concept Convertible.

Here’s a run down the two layouts.

  1. My son and I recently picked up some assorted Hot Wheels tracks at a thrift store. In with several sections of straight track and a stunt loop, there is a short red section that I wasn’t sure about. I now recognize it as the chute trap pictured in this set. Unfortunately, there is no chute or harness, so I’ll have to find those before we can try it out. Thanks for another great blog post!
