While it's not the speediest vehicle in our fleet, our Piston Thumper is a solid ride with some unique action. Pressing a piston-shaped button in the middle of its roof will activate engine sounds and lights, and when the blue Ford speeds ahead, the clear engine compartment roars to life with it's toy-sized V-8 thumping away with visible pistons illuminated by red LED lights. The motion effect is great at any time, but the lighting looks particularly cool at night. Additional buttons trigger addition sounds.
Having seen this one played with both indoors and out (the weather just started to break for us), I've seen it work great on tile and laminate floors, short carpet and concrete. Conditions may affect performance, but our Piston Thumper seems to do just fine no matter where the adventures might take it.
