Hot Wheels Backyard Racing Tree Track Gondola
H/t: Gizmodo
Backyard Racing built this massive Hot Wheels track last month, but his latest tree track may have topped that one. It took around two weeks to put together and involved tying several sections of the track with string to a tree, but the highlight of the show is a functional gondola that is powered by a hand drill. This gondola is capable of transporting Hot Wheels cars from the bottom of the track to the treetop. Read more to see it in-action.

Aside from the gondola, there are plenty of tunnels, jumps, loops and other obstacles to keep any Hot Wheels fan entertained. On a side note, did you know that the original Hot Wheels were made by Elliot Handler? That’s right, Handler found that his son Kenneth playing with Matchbox cars and decided to create a line to directly compete with them, and thus Hot Wheels was born. Handler wanted his diecast toys to be more like hot rods fantasy cars, typically with larger rear tires, superchargers, flame paint-jobs, outlandish proportions, and more, as compared to Matchbox cars which were generally small-scale models of production cars.
