The person behind the Backyard races The YouTube channel frequently turns their backyard into intricate Hot Wheels tracks. The latest takes advantage of the warmer weather by including three trips through water slides.
The course starts high in the air with tree branches supporting the track. After a short run, he dives down the first waterslide. This leads to a tiered section that dumps the car into more water, including backing up briefly.
After that the car goes through a technical section which includes several bends and a trip through a clear tube. At this point, the vehicle is close to the ground, so there is a lifting hill to pull the vehicle to the next part of the ride.
The car then descends a long incline and takes a turn where there is a leaf blower which propels the car further. It follows the backyard fence and then another waterslide.
Running through certain speed boosters takes the car to the final part of the race. It reaches the final slide and ends in a small pond.
According to the YouTube description, this trail required six sump pumps to get the water flowing. In addition to the usual Hot Wheels track, this course includes gutters to create the road. The builder also lists Popsicle sticks, string, magnets, Jenga blocks, plastic bins, and zip ties as building materials. There are decorations along the way like a shark, the green aliens of toy storyarmy men and other Hot Wheels cars.
Compared to other versions of Backyard Racing, this one is rather short. The full run takes one minute and 55 seconds. The last one we saw lasted 3:45 and featured complex elements like hanging parts of the track from popsicle sticks and even an elevator. It ended with a jump into a bucket of water.
Another track of this channel included a trip through a house, in addition to crossing the backyard. The clip ended with a jump off a bridge into a box full of foam blocks.
