Each time a kid puts a Hot Wheels car blasting down a twisty track, what's in the back of their head? Imagining what it would be like to be at the driver’s seat of that tiny car perhaps? Back when I was a kid, the closest view I could get is by playing the Hot Wheels games game in PlayStation 2; racing wheel-to-wheel with other racers through banked curves and 360-degree loop.

With GoPro Hero4 Session strapped on the roof of a Hot Wheels car, it is as close as you will ever get to experience actual Hot Wheels road trip in real-world speed. Lower your head as the launched car zooms under a fence into the neighbour’s yard. It even dives into the swimming pool and does the classic loop-de-loop, too.

According to the uploader, 5MadMovieMaker, in the video description, “The cart worked reasonably well underwater and only fell off the pool track a few times. The main problem with the pool track was keeping the track connected and in place. A rock was attached to the end of the track in order to weigh it down.”

5MadMovieMaker also stated that there are actually 11 cuts in the video, but you’ll hardly notice it as the video is brilliantly and smoothly transitioned.
