Hot Wheels have been a hot toy for a long time. But for 40-plus years, the loop the cars raced through was toy-sized. You could never imagine doing that in real life, right?
Set your eyes on the Double-Loop Challenge. At more than six stories high it's the biggest double-loop ever attempted.
Team Hot Wheels set a Guinness World Record at the X-Games in Los Angeles this weekend for their feat on life-sized replicas they built. The Double Loop Dare track is modeled after a toy track set called Double Dare Snare.
