For those of you who are familiar, but uninterested in the Build-a-bear phenomenon, Something new has come to us in SoCal. Its like build-a-bear, but its cars. Its called “Build Your Ride”. the website is ridemakerz.com. It looks kinda neat for a guy like me, you pick a body, wheels, accessories, and you get to use a “rack” to put it together. You can go as far as to make it a full remote control car.
The cons; The cars look too cartoony for me. Kinda like the Chevron commercial or the Cars movie. All the accessories are pretty much just bling, of course, but I would like to see something more technical, like engine bay options, or steering. Also, the remote control option steers like a tank. The effect also looks cartoony. the steering is by brute force on the drive train, and the car can spin in circles. The radio looks cheap.
I hope this expands and gets better. they need more options all around, like more car types. Even so, I plan on building my own car and reporting on it later.
