Instructions for a Darda Car Track
Darda claims its cars are the fastest motorised model cars in the world. (red car toy image by Dubravko Grakalic from

Darda cars are about the same size as a Matchbox car, but they contain a powerful motor inside which you can rev up to shoot the car along a course which you build. The tracks which come with the cars are flexible and easy to rebuild in a huge number of shapes. The freedom to create your own tracks makes the toy even more entertaining because you get more than just one lap out of each set.

  1. 1

    Slide a track joiner piece halfway into the grooves underneath a plastic length of track. Side another piece of track onto the other end of the track joiner.

  2. 2

    Join the track to a 180-degree turn piece with another track joiner.

  3. 3

    Insert the pins of a loop piece into the connector of another loop piece. Clip loop joiners on either side of this seam between the pieces.

  4. 4

    Attach the loop to a 90-degree cross track using track joiners.

  5. 5

    Assemble a box frame using bars and couplers, if your kit has them. Attach the large joiners to the bars on one part of the box frame to create points to connect the track to the upper part of the track.

  6. 6

    Expand on the units of track until you use up all of your pieces. You don't have to make the track into a closed loop, but if you do, your car will run on the track until it runs out of juice.

  7. 7

    Rev up your car. Push down on the car chassis until it clicks, then slide the car backwards and forwards repeatedly until you hear the motor whining loudly. Pick up the car and place it on the track to send it on its way.

Tips and warnings

  • Periodically wipe dust off the track and the wheels of the car to improve the traction of the vehicle.
  • The track provided with Darda cars is the ideal surface to run the cars on. They will work on hardwood floors, but they may peel out instead of taking off.
  • Don't run the car on shag carpet or carpeted surfaces, because it may jam the motor.
