Looks like a lot of fun! I can just imagine how many kids are gonna get busted up trying to drift around curbs and whatnot haha.

Heaven forbid the American public would allow a company to make a product that could cause harm to children while they were having fun. Because it's nothing short of a miracle that any of us survived our childhoods back in the day with some of the stuff we were allowed to do, lol. And yet, we survived. I think kids should be allowed to fall down and hurt themselves in the name of fun.

Haha I know. It's good for little kids to get ruffed up a bit while playing every now and then. It's part of growing up!

I also agree with this statement! Or, a more modern take, the FR-S/BRZ.

They said they're waiting to see if this sells well because if it does, they're already testing a larger version with the test driver weighing in at over 6 feet tall and well over 200lbs (can't recall the exact specs of the driver at the moment).

As a person who drifts on the track quite frequently, I honestly think this is bad as fuck. Seriously, I want one and want to impregnate a random girl just to have a son to gift this to. I mean come on, at 0:57 that little fucker is initiating his drift backwards - drift cars today can't do that without heavily modifying the knuckles, the driver knowing what he/she is doing, and having serious balls. I want this so badly.

Apparently we just have to make sure this version sells like hotcakes so they see that an adult version would sell well enough for them to make it worth their time to produce.

If there was an adult version they would be sold out in a week. Toy companies forget that adults are kids with wallets.
