The 1969 Hot Wheels 2-Way Super-Charger.
Here are the instructions.
The 2-Way Super-Charger was only sold by itself and in 2 other sets:
The 1969 Grand Prix Race Set
And the 1970 Hi-Performance Set
The standard Super-Charger typically goes with oval tracks. It’s pretty easy for a Hot Wheels car to run on a track with just 2 full curves.
The 2-Way Super-Charger powers figure-8 layouts. Figure-8 tracks are a lot harder for Hot Wheels cars to deal with because they have to negotiate 6 half curves on every lap. Appropriately, Mattel calls this figure-8 layout “The Tricky 8”.
Today I am putting 6 Hot Wheels cars through their paces on “The Tricky 8” track.
Each car will attempt to run 10 laps non-stop. Here’s what happened:
So there you have it. The 1969 Hot Wheels 2-Way Super-Charger driving the figure-8 layout.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
