Anki Overdrive Starter Kit (000-00031) 1379

Review for anki 000 00031 overdrive starter kit

Price was $119.99. This kit is simply awesome! i did a lot of research before i bought this for my sons (aged 6 and 7) for christmas. I was worried it would be too difficult for them, but we all know how tech savvy kids are today. I highly recommend this to kids and adults! i bought two extra cars so the boys would be able to race against computer controlled drivers, which works excellently, but the wife and i have been using them plenty too! you will fall in love with overdrive as soon as you start opening the box! everything is engineered flawlessly: from the mechanism that holds the cars in the packaging, the sticky pad used to clean the car tires, the "getting started" booklet, etc! it's obvious the designers of this system are either big kids themselves or have kids at home. We love it! . . Setting up the track is very simple. The ends of the track click together with magnets. The cars are set on the track and then do at least 2 laps to read the track. Now, make sure you have devices that use bluetooth 4. 00 (with full ble support). My boys' old kindles weren't compatible, but thankfully we also got them fire 8's for christmas, which worked perfect. I read in another review that you couldn't use apple devices and android devices together. However, we have found no issues at all mixing and matching different devices. I will mention that it seems like apple devices change lanes better than android, but we've only been using overdrive for a week or less. . I understand the tech that is involved in making everything work for anki overdrive, but it still seems like magic! the only slight downside is the physical connection to the race like pulling a trigger for throttle on slot cars, for example, isn't there. Thankfully, the addition of weapons and battle makes up for that. The cars themselves will cruise around the track without input from a player fine. . A small negative we have noticed is that the rail kits i purchased separately from the anki website don't stay on very well. They're supposed to click/snap into the edge of the track pieces, but they don't stay on as well as i would like. It's a bit surprising, really, because the rest of the systems are engineered so well. Also, the ramp kit doesn't work as well as the rest of the track. Too often, the cars careen off the sides of the ramp, which can be solved with the rail kits but the cars will eventually unclip the rails from the track. The bigger issue is that the cars will often do a 180 after landing on the other side of the ramp! still, we have left the ramp in our track system because it works more than it fails and the boys enjoy the jump. . Now, let me mention anki's customer service. I had bought add-ons from the anki website directly before christmas (20% off! ) including: two rail kits, a jump kit, a straight "speed" kit, a curved track kit, and supercar thermo. I had also purchased supercar guardian from an online store lightning deal. On christmas day, we excitedly set up the track and everyone sat down eager to play. Everything worked well, except guardian, which would spin in circles. The right drive wheel was the only one working properly or perhaps too much? troubleshooting tips online for a possible misaligned tire or bent axle didn't solve the issue. So, i picked up the phone on christmas day, without much hope of even reaching anyone. I was immediately connected to moises at anki and also later lauren on email. They were very kind, understanding, and apologetic! the very same day, they put a new guardian in the mail with 2 day shipping. Half a week later, we were all up and running! thank you, anki! it's not enough to make quality products, you must support them as well, which anki clearly understands. I will be purchasing more from them in the future. . To put it simply, i highly recommend anki overdrive! it's fun for kids and adults. They have made a high quality, enjoyable race track system and their customer service stands behind the products! again, thank you anki!

Preface

A modern day take on scalextric, you control a car that is free to race around a vinyl race track. The difference to the traditional toy from hornby, however, is that the cars have a life of their own. They can not only control themselves, but also fight back with virtual weapons. Overdrive is like a real-world mario kart, if you will. . The trouble with the original anki, however, was that unless you had a massive lounge to roll out the huge track you were pretty much scuppered. Anki overdrive rectifies this issue with modular track pieces - where, instead of a giant mat to lay out, different pieces clip together magnetically to create any shape of track you like. . I can safely say that overdrive is a huge leap forward for the californian start-up. It is almost a complete overhaul of the original anki drive in every way, and all of the additions will appeal to kids and more mature gamers alike Best Anki Overdrive Starter Kit as-of ( Sep 2020 ) | Anki-Toys And Games Review Extras Anki Overdrive Starter Kit Use your mobile device to take command of real robotic supercars in anki overdrive..

Anki 000 00031 Overdrive Starter KitAnki Overdrive Starter Kit (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

I bought this racetrack for my 13 yr old son as a christmas present. I had reservations about this product when purchasing. I didn't think it would be compatible with our older smartphones, and we have limited space to set up a racetrack in our home. I ordered it from online store because i knew returns would be easy even though anki. Com was offering this product at the same price with free shipping. On christmas day, my son opened the box and charged the cars. He then had the track set up in seconds. We were able to download the overdrive app & sync it with the cars on an iphone 4 and iphone 4s without any problems. Not including car charging time, my son & daughter were racing within ten minutes, and loved it! the more you win, the more upgrades you earn for your car to use against your opponent during races. The track clicks together with magnets and can be dismantled and rebuilt in different formations with no risk of damaging the connectors or the track pieces. We don't have expansion packs yet, but my son is constantly designing course layouts for a new challenge. He can play alone against a phantom opponent or with friends. We did add a third car to keep the racing more challenging. The cars are a bit pricey at $50, but anki. Com runs promotions, and the technology is worth the investment. (did i mention this toy is super cool? ) the original anki box is great for storing the track, cars and controls. So unlike older racetracks, it can be put away after each play session and rebuilt again later. I am impressed with every aspect of this product. I would definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a race track as long as you have access to some type of ios device required to play. It was nice to have a toy with such advanced technology be so user friendly and easy to operate. Well done from start to finish! can't wait to expand.

- Z. WadeThe entire overdrive system is terrific and works seamlessly out of the box. While a bit expensive, this supertruck added a new dimension to the base set/kit. The different game modes increase options for gameplay and continues to provide hours of entertainment for my kids, their cousins, and friends. The age range for this, in my humble experience (we just got the starter set and additional cars for christmas 2016) is 3+. The cars/trucks stay on the track by themselves and the players use mobile devices (smartphones/tablets) with bluetooth to control battle actions via an app. Speed control and weapons control is done from the device and affects on track performance. With several different options for challenges, the game accommodates 1-player, 2-player, and more. Moreover, the app continues to release milestone awards the more you play, so profiles of each driver continue to improve and reveal exciting new options. Can't recommend enough.

Bought for my 6 year old son. I didn't know what to expect after viewing ads and reading reviews but i am glad i made the purchase. As soon as we opened the box it took maybe 10 minutes to set everything up including the app. My son has an i pad 2 and samsung tablet that were not compatible because they did not run the latest software. Good thing i had a spare phone that ran android 6 because otherwise i would have had to return or give up my phone every time he decided to play. I downloaded the app on my phone and join in with the fun. The only complaint are after playing continuous for 15-20 min (i haven't timed it yet) the batteries die and have to be recharged however the cars charge back up in 10 min or so. I purchased 2 more cars which are a bit pricy running $50. So now when the cars need charged we switch the cars out and always have a fully charged car. It works great with 2 players. Plus it gives my son a chance to play with each car and earn points/rewards.

Best anki overdrive starter kit (000-00031) in review

This was the biggest hit of all the gifts at christmas for my kids. I got it for my 4 year old son, but my 7 yr old daughter loves it just as much and it's the only thing that gets her excited to get off her ipad. Well, you do use the ipad to steer, but i still consider this a non-video game, that's just the controller. The cars do fly off the track sometimes, but that's half the fun, knocking them off, and they stay on remarkably well in my opinion (better than slot cars for the unskilled). Having ai opponents in so many skill levels means i can get a challenge and there are ones that match up well for my son too. Right now our favorite thing is playing king of the hill with teams, and it's been great at teaching teamwork. I dropped my son off at school this morning and he asked if we could race tonight and if we could be partners against that mean raccoon (one of the opponents he likes to pick). Track set up is really fast and the magnets make it simple to do, both my kids have built different tracks and i can pack the whole thing up in 2 minutes (unlike traditional slot car tracks). I do with there was an easier way to clean and protect the track surface, but that's a minor complaint compared to how much fun we're having. It's really just been a great purchase.

This is amazing, fun, and addictive. I was originally worried that my 5 year old wouldn't be able to play it because it uses a phone and has some more complicated features that appeal to adults, but i was way wrong. My son loves playing it and has had his first trash talking experience with this set, my 2 year old loves running around the track and putting the cars back on when they crash or fall off as well. We loved it so much that the same night we got it we dropped another $200 on more track pieces and 2 more cars (you can race up to 4 at a time). In addition to playing the actual game, my son loves building the tracks in different designs and levels and over furniture and toys, which is great for his development. . The cars are truly amazing in how they scan the track and use your phone to steer and change lanes. The app makes it even more addictive by earning points to level up and earning new weapons. I have been known to stay up late and play it by myself against the ai. It is really like a video game in real life. . It is a lot of fun and both kids and adults will enjoy this, it is complex enough to entertain adults but also simple enough that a 4-5 year old can play and have fun. It is really a well done product. The ability to shoot other cars with weapons and ram your opponent off the track is awesome and a huge step above the little pin and controller cars of my day. My kids (and myself) are excited for the new super trucks that will be coming out later this year.

Bought this for christmas. The whole family uses it. We bought accessories to extend the track and have more cars. A lot of fun. Kids enjoy taking turns designing their own track routes. You have to keep it clean and cars charged. It's really fun and cool! easy assembly and take a part.

Simply the best race car set / track ever made. Great for adults and children alike. It says it is for 8 and above, but we have had 5 yr olds play with it and i expect that 4 yr olds can do it as well. After opening the box our the kids and adults alike played with it for hours. Until our cell phones died! . Pros:. 1. Track is the easiest to assemble, it uses magnets, so nothing to snap off an break, and they almost connect on their own. 2. Cars take approx 10 min to charge, but they give you at least 2 to 3 races per charge. So almost 30 minutes of racing. Or what feels like it. 3. The number one reason i bought this, was for the ability for my oldest to play with it by himself and still have fun. Anki has done a great job with this. This is where the ai stuff really comes into its own. You can effectively race against the computer and it matches your skill set. Really cool so it makes it fun without getting killed in 2 seconds. It has multiple computer players etc so it is fun for the children. So if you have an only child, get this because he can play without you, and then watch out he will certainly beat you when you play again! . 4. Can handle 4 racers at a time, you can switch lanes at will. I would have killed for this when i was a kid. Cons:. 1. The track takes up more space that we expected (it is 9 inches wide) - we put a small oval track (4 corner pieces and 2 straightaways) and it hung about an inch off of a standard rectangular dinner table for 4. - (we don't consider this much of a con, because we simply tell the kids to play with it on the floor in their rooms and take it apart and put it away in the box when they are done. The track is that easy to take up and down. So we get a clean room after! ). 2. You do need an android or apple device assigned for every car your are concurrently running on the track. We were planning on using a couple of our old android phones for this, but only one of them would work due to the os requirement. So check the anki site for what will work. This can be a drag, because most kids that want to play will this will not have cell phones. But tables work fine. Just a bit bulky to drive with since you steer by moving the phone right and left like a wheel. 3. Oh yes the down load for the software on android is over 250mb. So make sure you have enough room. But otherwise very fun and intuitive interface. In the end the pros far out way any of the cons, and after 3 weeks the kids still want to play with it every day. That is is a successful toy. I would say if you give it to you kids for christmas or birthday, be prepared for it to be the only gift they will want to play with. No matter what else you got them. . Thank you anki, for making something so fun!

Was looking forward to a new xbox or nes classic but we decided on this item as a special gift for our 6 year old. It's more adult then child, but i can say it's really fun for the whole family. Opening up this was a nicely package product, clearly the company cares. No controllers. You need to use a mobile phone or tablet per car that you want to control, up too 4 vehicles per track layout. This was our saturday before christmas special gift and we've already ordered 2 more cars and additional track since opening last night. Great pricing on add-ons through app at least this week. Got stuck at one point and the company responded almost instantly on a sunday. I was shocked! ps. Each car has a power on button on the bottom so if it gets stuck on connection to phone during vehicle selection just turn on/off. Happens occasionally. You can race for 25+/- minutes before charging which takes less than 10 minutes. Very happy with purchase!

This was the biggest hit of all the gifts at christmas for my kids. I got it for my 4 year old son, but my 7 yr old daughter loves it just as much and it's the only thing that gets her excited to get off her ipad. Well, you do use the ipad to steer, but i still consider this a non-video game, that's just the controller. The cars do fly off the track sometimes, but that's half the fun, knocking them off, and they stay on remarkably well in my opinion (better than slot cars for the unskilled). Having ai opponents in so many skill levels means i can get a challenge and there are ones that match up well for my son too. Right now our favorite thing is playing king of the hill with teams, and it's been great at teaching teamwork. I dropped my son off at school this morning and he asked if we could race tonight and if we could be partners against that mean raccoon (one of the opponents he likes to pick). Track set up is really fast and the magnets make it simple to do, both my kids have built different tracks and i can pack the whole thing up in 2 minutes (unlike traditional slot car tracks). I do with there was an easier way to clean and protect the track surface, but that's a minor complaint compared to how much fun we're having. It's really just been a great purchase.

Awesome game for 5 year old son. Didn't take long for him to figure it out. . I don't recommend track on carpet. Cars will pick up hairs and wrap around axle between wheel hub and outer chassis. Car will immediately start making erratic turns. Took me a few minutes to figure it out. I'd suggest hardwood floors for track, and if you have pets hit the floor with a swiffer or vacuum to remove any debris or hair. . The tire cleaner is a must. Helps dramatically when cars go off track and pickup dust on rear tires(big bang will fish tail if not clean). You can use cold water and your thumb to clean the tire cleaner and then let it dry over night. If you find yourself cleaning alot in one day take some packaging tape and stick it to a surface sticky side up to clean tires. Works just as good. . Additionally, i got the samsung nexus 10 to work. Download it from ankis site (not app store). Will let me join games, can't create though. . Anki will supposedly send you a new car if the gears get grinder or hairs stuck in axle. Thermo was my first car to get jammed up. I slowly got the hairs out using a paperclip while i ran my other hand over car sensor. The back wheels are controlled by two separate motors to two separate gears on each wheel. The front wheels literally have no purpose so don't bother cleaning them they're solid plastic. . Also check the rubber tire on rear wheels. If it comes slightly off wheel just in the slightest bit the car will be all over track. . All in all great game for kids and adults.

I. Candy, Newcastle upon Tyne says

Bought for my 6 year old son. I didn't know what to expect after viewing ads and reading reviews but i am glad i made the purchase. As soon as we opened the box it took maybe 10 minutes to set everything up including the app. My son has an i pad 2 and samsung tablet that were not compatible because they did not run the latest software. Good thing i had a spare phone that ran android 6 because otherwise i would have had to return or give up my phone every time he decided to play. I downloaded the app on my phone and join in with the fun. The only complaint are after playing continuous for 15-20 min (i haven't timed it yet) the batteries die and have to be recharged however the cars charge back up in 10 min or so. I purchased 2 more cars which are a bit pricy running $50. So now when the cars need charged we switch the cars out and always have a fully charged car. It works great with 2 players. Plus it gives my son a chance to play with each car and earn points/rewards.

I got this for christmas from my wife. I originally saw it at the apple store. At first i thought it was gimmicky. When i opened it for christmas i was thinking am i going to enjoy this or is is like slot cars and will i get tired of it right away. It is a very expensive toy. Well i am glad i got it. My kids 4 and 7 love it. I love it as well. It is really like a vides game and race track all in one. You have your cars and control them with your mobile device. It comes with 2 cars and enough track to make about 6 or 8 tracks. It takes up a lot of space. I can only do the oval track on my fully extended dining room table. I have 2 small dogs that i think would walk all over it if put it on the floor so i haven't tried the other tracks. The cars have weapons and you can "disable" the other cars in order to pass them. This is kind of like a video game and race track all in one. As you win races you build up your vehicle with power-ups and upgrades. One person "hosts" the race and someone else joins in to race. If you are by yourself you can challenge the computer. It actually races against you. Really cooll! there are add on pieces you can buy. Extra cars, banks, jumps, intersections etc. If you have a lot of room i say go ahead. The cars are rechargeable and last about 25 minutes and then need charged for about 8-10 minutes. It kind of sucks a little because when i want to race i want to keep going. If i stop to charge i usually move on to something else. It would be nice to have 2 extra cars to keep racing without stopping. They are 39. 99 each or you can buy combo packs for their website. If you like race tracks then you will love this one. You will not get bored, there is plenty to do and many configurations.

We bought this for our 9 year old grandson. He has enjoyed it more than any other race car set that he has played with. We did have problems in the beginning setting it up ( wished it had come with an instruction book) had to call tech support they were very helpful. Would recommend to a friend.

The anki overdrive set was given to my son for christmas by his grandmother, and it promised to be the hit of the christmas party. If only we could have gotten it working. . When we opened the set we un-packaged the cars, the tracks, the chargers and everything else - and put the cars on the charger. The track went together great - the magnetized tracks snap together super easy. So far, so good. . Then we downloaded the app on my son's phone, a motorola moto x. The app downloaded from online store, and appeared to be working. So we went through the setup process on the app, updated the firmware for both cars, put the cars on the track, etc. Then we tried to do a race. The cars wouldn't connect to the app on the moto x. Or one car would connect and not the other. . We monkeyed with it for like 1/2 an hour and then decided to try it on my phone, a motorola moto x 2nd gen, and no luck again. . We tried the google nexus 7 tablet, and we were able to connect to the cars this time, but when it came time to scan the track the cars just sat there and never moved. . We also tried another old samsung tablet, but that one also wouldn't connect. So when it came down to it we tried the following devices and were never able to get the anki overdrive set working:. . - motorola moto x 1st gen (2 devices no luck). - motorola moto x 2nd gen. - google nexus 7 tablet (newer version). - samsung tablet. . After having the letdown on christmas eve and not being able to play with the cars, on christmas day the set miraculously started working with the moto x 2nd gen device long enough to do like 3 races, but then stopped connecting to the cars again. So finally i went online to figure out if others were having the same problems. It turns out that the set has some pretty specific devices that it recommends people use that use bluetooth le 4. 0, and apparently none of our devices that we have were 100% compatible. In fact, our devices were actually on the "not compatible" list. Ugh. . Before you buy this track i recommend you figure out for sure if your device is compatible, otherwise you'll end up running into the same issues we did, guaranteed. . Finally after doing further research we found that the newest kindle fire 5th generation devices were in fact compatible with this anki overdrive set. Since those tablets were only $50, we bought one with a christmas gift card. . After unboxing the new tablet we downloaded the app from online store, we got everything up and running. . This time the app on the kindle fire connected the first try to both cars and we were able to get the game up and running without any issues. We were able to play single player games, and host a multi-player game as well. . When the kindle fire hosts a game, we're able to connect all of the devices mentioned above over the same wifi network, and control the second car, as long as the fire hosts the game and controls the first car. The other devices cannot host a game or play a single player game on their own without the fire. . Once we got everything running my son declared that this anki overdrive set was the "best christmas gift ever" and he hasn't stopped playing since. He's gotten so good at this point that i can't seem to defeat him in battle mode. *sigh. Defeated by a 6 year old. . My advice if you decide to buy this set is make sure your device is compatible with anki first. If it's not, be aware you may need to get a new device (like the $50 kindle fire) in order to get it to work. If you have a device on the compatible list, buy it now - you'll have a ton of fun!

Update: anki has replaced my car. Customer service was very good. They required a lot of communication, including a live telephone call so they could step me through the trouble shooting process (clean the tires), but eventually i was approved for a replacement. They now run at approximately the same speed, making the races more fun. I did buy 2 more cars (from warehouse deals) and have had fun with 4 of us racing, although with that many cars, we spend a lot of time putting cars back on the track after the crash and run off the side. . It is fun. My kids (and the parents) love it. The cars drive themselves around the track, you just steer a little left or right to pick your racing line. Then to pass you use weapons like a tractor beam or cannon to temporarily slow or disable the other cars racing. However. . The blue car that was included with mine is significantly slower than the red car. There is no way it can ever win a race (you can maybe pass if you use all your weapons up, but then you get passed right back and the other car pulls away while your weapons recharge, getting lapped the entire time). Initially it would slow way down and wiggle through all the turns and then, after reconfiguring the track, found it won't make right turns at all (just wiggle a little bit as it goes straight off the track). . After a little investigating, the only thing i can figure is it seems the left rear wheel on the car doesn't spin as freely as the other rear wheel on that car or the two rear wheels on the red car. Not sure why, but it significantly reduces its straight line speed and makes the car barely able to corner (it uses differential speed to the rear wheels to steer). . Problem certainly put a damper on christmas as everyone was excited to race and have a tournament with a game everyone could play, but the two cars were not on the same level. . I have submitted a help ticket to anki, and i will update with a rating of their customer service. Hopefully they will just send a new car, otherwise i am returning the whole thing to online store.
