Air Power Racer Kit
Build an air-powered racer – no batteries required and no motor to malfunction. The kit includes all of the plastic parts for your racer; just snap them apart when you are ready to assemble. In a separate bag are the screws, shafts, o-rings, and other mechanical items needed. You will need to provide a few tools to help with assembly – a diagonal cutter, screwdriver (small Phillips head), hammer, scissors, ruler, tissue paper, and permanent marker. The assembly & instruction manual is 48 pages of step-by-step, numbered illustrations with explanations. There are even a couple of pages of trouble-shooting suggestions, just in case. The finished product can then be hand-pumped full of air for the power to go a distance of up to 50 meters.
This car is fast and furious fun that requires no batteries or specific weather conditions to limit its usage. A pump-up bar with a pressure meter is built into the car for easy operation. The air chamber is made from PET (polyethylene terphthalate), the silicon tube creates an air tight fit. A safety valve has been implemented into the kit as another safety device. When the compressed air is released it drives the vehicle a distance up to 50 meters in 35 seconds. OWI's Air Power Racer is not only designed with the environment in mind, but is also fun and easy to build!
