Matchbox was known to make positive strides in rolling performance with the original 'Superfast' wheels in the 70s. But I think the 'Starburst' wheels from the 1980s was among their best performers(remember the Hailey's Comet cars?). Of coarse, the 'Laser Wheels' have also raised some eyebrows among racers. Although, I can't really see any mechanical differences between Starburst wheels and Laser Wheels.
So in the case of something like the Fantasy League game, would you want to know if a car had Laser/Starburst/Superfast wheels?
That's what I'm trying to determine...guess I didn't mention that above, whoops.
With Hot Wheels, there can be 2 cars that are the same casting but one has FTE axles...thus in the context of picking a car for the game, those are 2 different cars; each with separate stats.
Do you think that type of policy should be applied to the Laser wheels, etc.?
I need to figure out what people would consider to be "special" or "premium" features on a car so I can denote that car database we end up creating for the game.
