Product Description

This expansion to PitchCar adds new track pieces, including sharper curves and a jump, for an even more exciting race.

Important note to owners of Carabande: PitchCar is NOT compatible with Carabande. There is a slight difference in track thickness between the two; and contrary to popular belief, the jigsaw-cut ends of the PitchCar track segments which attach one track segment to the next do NOT match with those in Carabande.

I love what I have, not what I have not...
July 05, 2004

The expansion for Pitchcar came with 2 narrowed starightaways with 2 rails on each, 4 Curves with an rail in the middle as well as an outside rail (that narrowed the outside path as it went), and two starightaway pieces that allow a figure 8 formation with one flat side. No jump, and the straightaway pieces can't be connected one after another with all rails and be expected to work.

But, I love the expansion. With all rails in, the turn pieces are just challneging enough to make it tough, and the narrow straights allow for you to let another player push you through. For a change of pace, you can take out a rail, and make any of these pieces even more challanging. Try that curve without the outside rail, and you'll see what I mean.

One thing to note is that, through an unlucky flip, it may be possible to land on an unplayable spot of the straightaways where you are surrounded by rail. I would treat this as if your car went off track.

This is definately worth the price. Buy it and enjoy!

It's not what you think it is
March 10, 2004

While the game is excellent, the expansion is very limiting.

- The jump does not have a ramp/transition, so actually requires angling the pieces or the merge between them affects the cars. IE, it's not a jump, just a straight section of track, and certainly shouldn't be priced any different than a straight section of track.

- The tight turns and the 'chicane' do not match up to the other pieces for a flowing feel of track. Most combinations of the pieces are not feasible to drive. There is no way to place the chicane without having rails in the middle of your straight or turn, it's awkward at best.

For this price, I would like to see twice the track for not delivering very well anything it says it does. Stick with just the game or find this expansion cheap.

A PitchCar fan must

The best expansion ever made, it's still in stock so don't hesitate any longer because this item is really hard to find elsewhere. The publisher should re-release it with a new design/box in the following month, so this one will become a real collector ;-) If you have PitchCar, you need it, you'll enjoy it, you'll have fun with it, no doubt.
