Default sorta like a slot car...?

im looking for this odd racetrack from when i was younger. basicaly it was a large track, heavily banked in the turns, flat on the straights and with short walls on either side. no slots. you charged up your car with a gas pump looking thingy, but the actual pump part was like a headphone jack. it charged up the cars and they raced freely between the walls, bumping each other and the walls along the way. car were about 3 inches i guess. has anyone heard or seen of this? i vaguely remember the name being "zappers" or "fuelers" i think. something short like that.

Response appreciated,
Jake

Oh those cars were my favs way way back close to 40yrs ago (holy smoke I just thought about that....jeez!) and I was lucky enough to have such a loving family that they bought me another complete set back about 5-6 Christmases ago when Hot Wheels brought them temporarily back for their anniversary (or something).

Love them, bring back such great memories
