BluTrack is a two-lane racetrack system with optional ramps to create more loops and curls. By design no small parts or interlocking connectors are needed to go from a straight race to one with loops or curves in it. The best hanging option is a window suction cup.

As we are selling more products into the school and promotional markets, we wanted to make it easier for our customers to tell the difference. Starting in June 2102 BluTrack Pro will be going to a gray color. During this transition your order maybe Blue or Gray but the spec remain the same.
- BluTrack Pro has 48% more material compared to regular BluTrack® for even more durability
- Rails are 12% higher than standard toy product
- BluTrack® Pro design based on teacher feedback for a more substantial classroom use
- Thicker base ideal for outdoor use and promotional events
- Available in 18, 50 and 100 foot continuous coils
- Smoother, more repeatable track surface
- Coils in both directions for easier setups and tear downs
- Better able to handle more extreme temps
For best results, BluTrack is designed to operate at 70 degrees. If track has been in the cold for a long time it can take several days for it to warm to the 70 degree temp. To speed process, coil up track and soak entire track EXCEPT hanger pad in hot water for 2 minutes. This will quickly soften the track.
Yes, Randy Belding designed the track, based on what he and his children wanted to do. The children were three and five at the time and the objective was to create something safe for young children to play with yet still really fun for all ages. We like to think that our research and development team is small but mighty.
Randy spent three years developing BluTrack, and is now in the process of manufacturing a starting gate, a finish line, and a lane changer to expand play options.
So would we! People of all ages use BluTrack in different ways - there's no right or wrong way. We encourage everyone to send us pictures of their BluTrack configurations, toys used, and places where they play with the track.
Already we've seen a lot of fun stuff! BluTrack fans set it up in the living room, loop it over the monkey bars in the park - why, we've even seen a BluTrack sand castle on the beach!
Check the website frequently to see how others play with BluTrack and please send us your pictures, too! Make sure we can see the smiling faces of those playing and give us your names and ages.

Yes. If for any reason you're not satisfied with your BluTrack purchase from this website, return it within 10 days in good working condition and we will refund your purchase price, less shipping and handling.
Address returns to the attention of Customer Service because that department is much more reliable than General Zoom on these matters.
You can use any 1/64th scale car but we found that Darda and Hot wheels® work the best.
Overall width of the track is 3.85", with each lane being 1.65" wide
Yes, we sell 6 foot extensions. Unlike traditional systems that use a peg to hold track sections together, BluTrack uses an adhesive system to connect lengths of track together. Simply peel, stick and rub. Once lengths are assembled, simply coil up BluTrack to store.
: Place the car on the track, gently push down and move the car back and forth until the sound changes. Release pressure and watch it go. CAUTION: Do not over-wind as this will damage the motor. If you damage the motor, you can remove it and the car will still operate in a standard gravity-drop.
We do not offer a warranty on the Darda® cars we include in some of our kits. These are a “pass-through” item that the Darda® Distributor has authorized us to place in our kits for customers’ convenience. We place these vehicles in the kits at our own cost and do not pass that on to the customer.
Comparing the track surface of a two lane BluTrack to some other systems sold at a discount chains, BluTrack is usually less expensive. For example, one system purchased at Wal-Mart costs $1.66/foot of track. An 18-foot Starter kit selling at $40.00 calculates out to $2.20/foot for two lanes but only $1.10/track lane foot. With the 24ft stunt pack, after backing out the 8 ramps, the price per lane foot is less than $1.00.
3 year and above.
Yes. You have two options.
1) Simply coil your BluTrack up (with the rails facing out) and place it back in the box. In most cases the track will return back to its original shape.
2) Warming the track up will cause BluTrack to return to its orginal shape. If the outdoor temp is above 65 degrees, simply roll out and let the sun warm the track. If colder, try giving the track a hot bath. Once BluTrack has softened, simply coil up and store.
Unlike most systems that are rigid in design, BluTrack was designed to use the horizontal and vertical space within a room so the kid can design track layouts that go left, right, up, down, loops, twists, ….
Yes, every component is purchased, manufactured, assembled and packaged in the United States except for some ramp styles. Even thoses ramps are sourced from a United States company that may choose to manufacture overseas.
