It’s like real racing: spills, thrills, color commentary. Except this is with Hot Wheels and the like.

3dbotmaker occupies a great little subset of the internet. It's like marble racing but with way better production.

So it looks.like if you can keep the car straight you could have a decent time. How do you do that? Weight the car a certain way? Better tires?

Good question about weight in the car. Maybe something heavy down low helps?

Most of the front runners are about 90 to 100 grams. Tires make a difference. If they stick out they run against the track sides slowing them down it seems. I love the commentary and the banter between 2d and 3d. That and the sound effects are what draws me in. Love 3Dbotmaker racing.

Weight and length seem to help.

I've been really enjoying these DRL videos. The banter is good and the audio additions (tires squealing, crash sounds, etc.) really add to the production level.

Also, totally not surprised Crazy Jimmy and Crazy James are related.

Totally agree.  The production values and commentary is better than many auto racing series manage, lol.

I literally spit out my lunch watching the first round of king of the hill.
