### Does toy car weight determine toy car speed?

Mass (and weight) certainly does have an impact. Other factors
that come into play are how much energy the engine exerts (a toy
car with an engine that exerts the same amount of energy as a more
massive toy car can travel faster on the same surface) and how much
friction is generated by the wheels and the surface the toy car is
traveling on. If the (toy) car is going down a ramp,if you add say
another two or so grams, the car will travel faster

### What influences the speed of a toy car?

There are many factors that can influence the speed of a toy
car, some of these factors may include:
- aerodynamics: the way the air passes along and around the toy car
at high speeds; the more aerodynamic, the higher the speeds it will
reach.
- quality of wheels: this may seem a bit odd but the quality and
resistance of the toy cars wheels will greatly effects the speed of
the car; the smoother the better.
- weight: The amount of weight the toy car has determines the
velocity of the car; the lighter it is the quicker it will
accelerate and reach higher speeds however heavier cars can reach
even greater speeds.
