  • [Question] Radiator Springs Racers/Test Track technology question?

    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone might have a diagram or could make a quick drawing to illustrate how the cars attach to the track. I know the cars have a slot, but is there motor under the track or on the car it self? I'm curious as to what is in the slot. anyone know? thank you!

        The motor is in the car its self. The Car is attached to the track via a roller coaster like track beneath the "slot". The Car gets its power from a electrical bus bar which runs underneath the "rollercoaster" track.

        If you go to West Coaster dot net, they have great pictures of the underneath of one of the cars and all the components that makes this ride work. Just look at their 2011 D23 update.
