As with the rest of the Auto Combat line, there are many printout options with varying degrees of damage and wear (e.g. we use two printed sets; a "nice" set for the Auto Combat Arena, and a "junk" set for our desert table all covered with grime and graffiti that are layer options in the PDFs).

When weighted with ballast as suggested (I used sand) they have a substantial weight and don't get bumped around at all.

Also worth mentioning: The Auto Combat Arena texture blends nicely with these; they look great together.

As mentioned in another review, the one negative is that the directional/arrow barriers have an untextured bottom, forcing you to either print out multiple copies of each, or hack together a "flippable" one yourself. If you switch your track layout a lot, you frequently run out of the necessary direction.

Silly tip: You can print these out with increasing degrees of battle damage and lay them out so that early portions of a race have less damage than the later... makes for a cool little narrative, especially as drivers pass Gate 1 and weapons unlock...

The textures are nice and the pieces are exactly what would be expected. The default scale works perfectly for Hot Wheels cars and still looks good when used with 32mm models.

It is a bit disappointing that the barriers are rectangular prisms but their graphics have a definite top and bottom. It would have been nice to make a single large set of barriers with arrows on them and just place them as either right or left facing arrows as needed instead of needing to make a batch of left arrow barriers and right arrow barriers. I would have also appreciated a flat fold option for the barriers like what was done on the turrets in the Auto Combat Gun Turrets pack. Those things are what kept this from being a 5 star review.
