If someone could help me with a name of a specific toy that would be awesome. What I can remember is that they were battery powered cars from the 80's of very early 90's. They were roughly 5 or 6 inches long. They had rollers on each corner of them and you could buy all kinds of different upgrades for them like gears, motors, and tires. I remember on one saturday at the local mall a long time ago they had a tournament race with these things. There were big tracks set up in the middle of the mall. Does anyone remember the names of these toys? I had a few of them and I would like to try and find them again. Thanks for any and all info!

Asked my buddy Kevin who always impresses me with his recollections of stuff like this. He says:

Yep - they're made by Tamiya and I think you can still get them.
Here you go. I think they are harder to come by in the US but pretty popular in EU and Japan.
