When I was at Time to Play I stopped by the Silverlit booth to get a closer look at the Silverlit 3D Twister. This double sided remote control car was really amazing. Neal Hoffman from Silverlit took time to show me personally how the 2.4GHz 3D Twister, the Bluetooth Enzo Ferrari and the Blu-Tech Heli. I was really impressed with these remote control vehicles. But I like crazy speed so I wanted to get a 3D Twister to review and give away for SwagsGiving.
This car is so fast that it is so hard to get decent video of it in motion with my video camera. And I didn’t even switch to turbo to do the video. The car responds to the remote control very quickly as well. It turns when I expect it to turn and it goes where I want it to go, most of the time. The times that it doesn’t go where I want it to go are when it is going so fast that turning puts it into a super spin out. The car will spin 360s until I make it go the other way or backwards or release the trigger. I’ve made the car go so fast forward that if I slam it into reverse I can make it flip onto the other side and then continue to run.
A cool piece of technology that the 3D Twister makes use of is 2.4GHz which has been for hobby grade Remote Control vehicles but not for consumers until recently. With 2.4GHz technology you can run up to 10 vehicles at the same time. The fun thing about this is that many people can play at one time instead of just a couple using the older radio channels of 27MHz or 49MHz. Also with a 2.4GHz connection the cars can drive longer distances without degradation of signal strength and the controller can receive feedback from the car.
As far as feedback the 3D Twister gives the controller crash feedback. If you run your car into a wall or off a wall and it crashes your controller will give you feedback and vibrate. It is a fun gimmick for this car and helpful as well because, going back to the 2.4GHz signal your car might be out of your sight and knowing that ti is no longer on the straight and narrow is a good thing.
The car comes with extra tires and can run indoors and outdoors. It is a very light and flexible car and so it can take some crazy jumps and still keep going. The car is rechargeable and the controller recharges the car. A full charge takes between 30 and 50 minutes and you get about 7 minutes of run time to play with the car.

Please use the rafflecopter widget and follow all of the directions. The first direction is to leave a comment on this post (scroll to bottom to the comment section) after you’ve visted the Silverlit 3D Twister website and tell me what what sort of stunts you’d perform with a 3D Twister. Then click the “I did this” button on the rafflecopter widget. You can gain more entries by doing other tasks after that. But you must do the first steps to enter.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this toy to review and blog about as well as give away as part of the SwagsGiving Event. Opinions about the toy are 100% my own.
