We'll admit it, this video isn't exactly new, but it's the first time we're seeing it and, honestly, we're stunned. The creators have dubbed this "The Mother of All Hot Wheels Tracks," and after sitting at our desks with wide eyes and dropped jaws, we're inclined to agree. And not just because it's amazing to watch a little toy car run a claimed 2,000-foot gauntlet of orange plastic – it's remarkable from a construction standpoint, too. Think about it: How many times would you design an elaborate Hot Wheels track only to have the whole thing come apart around Turn Four?

Consider this thing the Nürburgring of the Hot Wheels world.

Being the skeptics that we are, we so have to question the authenticity of this race course, only because the changing camera angles leaves some wiggle room for building the sections separately with much less track. You can vote yea or nay in our poll below, but frankly, we want to live in a world where this is 100 percent real.

Regardless, it's an amazing feat of Hot Wheels engineering, and we highly encourage you to take four minutes out of your day to watch the full video, posted after the jump.

      Even if it the shots were staged and its not a continuous track they still would have had to take the time to set it up in each area with is impressive.

      now we just need him to run one of those new fancy hot wheels cars with the camera on it through the track, that would be epic.

      This is awesome, but must have taken many runs to get all the footage. I don't doubt that it's one track, because boosters and D-cells(never have any) aren't too hard to come by. Either way, it's great that a dad would do this kind of fun stuff with his sons!

      This is the reason that, if I have children, I hope it's a boy.

      So did anyone else feel compelled to make a donation? Got $20 from me.

      I believe it was shot in segments but the track is real, where the track seem to stop, I believe was the drop in the curb. A lot of schools do these types of stunts with dominoes, so why not with a Hot Wheel? Great video!

        its in segments because at 58 seconds you see the view through the loop at one side, then the next second at 59 seconds the camera angle switches to the other side of the loop, if it were continuous then we would see the other camera in both views. this is the only way for the car to be continuously moving in real space and time. how else could one produce a shot like that without moving the camera instantaneously and faster than light in order to catch the car coming from the other side of the loop. and plus what else would he have done, buy like 50 cameras and switch to each one as the car passes? i want to believe this is real too though, but it is for a good cause so its still cool.

          I believe the track is all 1 piece. The video footage is a composition of several takes/shots.

      maybe next time he can use one of those hot wheels cars with the video camera built into it

      At 2:04 you can see the track sort of end, as there is no more track.

      Now they just need one of those new Hot Wheels with the camera in it so we can get a driver's seat view! It also should've ended in an epic jump into something.

      he should run it with that little car with a camera in it to prove it's really all one unbroken track.
