Is Tomy still the manufacturer for AFX cars?
I am interested in purchasing a TOMY AFX 9131 HO Scale Electric Racing Set - Ridge Runner model and want to know if the set is compatible with current tracks made by AFX. I am purchasing this set for my 5 year old and i am sure he will break something.
If i can easily buy replacement parts, it wont be too bad.

I just cant find ANYTHING online or here about this Ridge Runner set.

TIA!

If it is a Tomy AFX set, it should work just fine with the current Tomy AFX track.

I'd also recommend one of the Tomy AFX Tri-Power power packs as an add-on right away - It will let you reduce the power so he won't de-slot his car as often when he is just starting out.

Here's a few links for you:

Thanks for the reply. Thats a great idea about the power pack too.

So AFX is still made by Tomy?

Spoke with the seller of the item and i was told the set was manufactured 3 years ago, but is new inbox.
Also uses current mfg tracks like you thought.

So excited, my son is going to love this Christmas Gift.

Welcome to HT, Tia!

Lucky son to have a parent like you.
I am sure you will have as much fun racing the cars as your boy does!

Spark a passion, feed the soul, Tia.
If you can swing it, add an extra car to the Xmas stocking and buy new cars for gifts through the new year. He will treasure the memories that you give him.
Way to start him young! :thumbsup:
