Could a moped be used to propel hot wheel cars around a track?

I remember seeing those battery powered contraptions used on hotwheels tracks that basically just had a motor and a roller. Well could a moped tire be used if done carefully? My concern is that the car would go too fast and cause trouble. But maybe if the track were long enough it wouldn't be a concern??

I would attempt this and post results but I down own a hotwheel track or cars anymore.

I mean, yes. but youd have a hard time with it, and you'd also have to have a rippin' moped wheel on a fixed moped stuck in your play room with exhaust blasting you in the face while your die cast twin engine shark car whips around a criss cross crash course

You bastard...I could go the rest of my life without reading those three words...hot...wheels....track

My mortal enemy from the age of four up...my ass hurts just thinking those words...

I'm convinced hot wheels only marketed the track so that parents would always have a weapon within reach...

Probably a good thing that your dad was not an avid golfer.

Seriously, setting up that track and trying to fire those cars into my butthole still gives me shivers

Re: Could a moped be used to propel hot wheel cars around a track?

They were called super chargers. They had foam on each side, so the moped over the track would only be propelling the car on the top and not the sides as intended. You would do best to take off the hard tire and just run the bike with an inner tube inflated to low pressure, or the only cars you could run would all have to be the same height.

This thread is near and dear to my heart, as I still have all my Hot Wheels cars from 1968 AND my first moped from 1979.

Now if I could just do this and incorporate my Beatles' collection and my rotary telephone collection into the mix...

Mopeds are better used to propel merry-go-rounds.

Re: Could a moped be used to propel hot wheel cars around a track?

I want to do the merry go round thing.

People will get hurt

Re: Could a moped be used to propel hot wheel cars around a track?

People always get hurt, once "jack-ass" became a hit? There really was no hope for us, once dumb becomes entertainment, the society is doomed. We are circling the drain, glad I lived my best years pre-internet. Best of luck to the new people.

Rotary phones! Now we're talking! I was surprised that my magic jack put out enough voltage to ring my old wall mount bell when I ditched quest. Had to get a pulse to tone convertor tho..

still works great, plugged the magic jack into my wall socket and the whole house was converted from copper no problem.
