The Radio Shack variation is called the Zip Zap. They are about the 
hottest thing going. I got on
a waiting list 3 weeks ago and got 2 a week latter. RS doesn't even set 
them out, the list takes them
immediately.  There are also Micro Racers sold at places like Toy's 'R' 
Us, I think they sell similarly
fast. A 'geek' online magazine rated the Micro Racers better.

I don't believe either have Mini bodies. Though both have interchangable 
bodies. I think I got
a Mustang and a Civic (Fast and Furious). I also got Sponge Bob Square 
Pants bodies. These
are for the kids, after all.

There's are also knock offs of these. I don't know much about the knock 
offs though we saw
them at Mall of America and the Supermarket (Rainbow).

I can't give a report on how fast and fun they are until Christmas, of
