Hang on a minute lads. I've got a great idea.
Whether you're recreating the Italian Job at home or just having a race at home this pack of two radio controlled Mini Coopers are great fun and will keep you in the self-preservation society.

What is the BMW Mini Cooper S?
The 1:24 scale Mini Cooper S, this third-generation mini hot hatch, features the BMW design and coming in a set of two packs delivering twice the amount of fun. You can challenge your friends and family to your own indoor rally race. The car itself has real rubber tyres and a high gloss paint, for that authentic appearance.

How does the BMW Mini Cooper S drive?
The full function remote controllers allows you to move forwards, backwards and steer left and right, allowing you to drive the Mini Cooper S across your indoor rally course and create your own exciting races. Each car requires three AA batteries, with the controllers running off two AA batteries. Both the car and remote can run off alkaline or rechargeable batteries.

What do I get in this pack?
This pack contains two BMW Mini Cooper S radio controlled cars which are great fun. The cars operate using different radio frequencies allowing both to be operated at the same time making them an excellent choice for racing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought these to replace another RC car, purchased from and returned to Maplin as it did not work properly... I bought the Minis for my 6 year old son and his sister 3 to play with and share. I am very surprised they have been rated 5/5 by everyone because I was deeply disappointed with the quality of them... Yes I know they're cheap (missed them when they were ???9.99 - thats more what they're worth), but, they have an absolutely rubbish turning circle and one of them cannot be set to track straight... To be fair my kids enjoy them, but I am still disappointed we get sold and buy such rubbish sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Little Toys These are brilliant little toys, but they are that - toys! If you are looking for a full-function RC car then these probably aren't for you. However, if you're looking for something that can be used in a small area, that can be bumped into things without much concern (tables, chairs, the other car!) and that can race one another - then these are exactly that! The Cons: Not the best turning circle. Digital control so lacks smoothness in turning & speed control. The Pros: Can be used / raced together. Good battery life. Strong build for cheap RC Cars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great little cars. I drive an Mini Countryman and was lucky enough to get one of the remote cars in exactly the same colours!!! These little ones are as much fun as the real ones. If you get one, you won't regret it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Got these for my sons as an xmas present. One of the pair the tracking was way out and couldn't be corrected by the lever on the bottom, the other didn't work at all until you shook it, then it worked for a while, then needed another shake, and so on. Probably a loose connection somewhere. Definitely not even worth the low price tag, unusable. Not worth the hassle of returning for a refund.

These two cars run on 27MHz and 40MHz. The twin pack can be used together but you cannot use multiple twin packs together.

What is run time
Asked by: J.E.A.
Sorry this is impossible to calculate as it will depend on the type and quality of batteries employed, - the terrain the vehicles are driven on and the ambient temperature can also play a part in battery longevity
