Hotwheels are far superior to Matchbox.

Can you rev it to the 'Red Line?'

Matchbox goes green, while Hot Wheels is rolling coal.

Any ideas on the best way to sell Matchbox?

Will you need to charge it after 40 minutes of playtime?

Matchbox are "Superfast" and have been around longer.  Hot Wheels are much better on all the track sets they sell, but they make so many different cars that not all of them live up to what they should be.  Plus you spend way too much time looking for Treasure Hunts or trying to complete some mini-set.

I've got a few HW Teslas, but the Cybertruck is very elusive and everyone snaps them up so they can sell them on ebay at ridiculous prices. I am NOT going to spend $40 on a 1:64 scale Cybertruck.  Both brands are owned by Mattel now anyway.

Nice Ford. My opinion is just from looking what's on the shelves at the local stores.  I'm not a typical collector.  I mostly buy Porsches, Miatas, other exotics and race cars.  I don't worry about sets or anything like that.

Good for them to put electric vehicles in the lineup.  When I was the target age for these in the early 70's I had a few cars the I could "gas up" by plugging in a battery pack.  Don't know where they came from, or remember what brand, (possibly an oversees import) but they sure were great on those orange plastic tracks.
