Hot Wheels have teamed up with Mod Kids in a change to the MK traditional long formatted films, starting with an online introduction; Mod Kids | Hot Wheels.
"This is a monumental inside look for our sport and will likely change our platform moving forward to ensure long-term viability and growth," Mod Kids USA producer Chris James said. "We've put everything into documenting the families we follow for the last four years. That means time, money, and passion! So, we're excited to have this elite brand represent Mod Kids from when we started - to where we're heading."
