Description

Race CO2 dragsters – even with a budget on the brakes.

Start with the EZ Start Gate – a manual start gate designed to make dragster activities easy and affordable. Lining up cars and launching them is a simple operation, and students spot the winners at the finish line. When you can budget for more equipment, add the EZ Finish Gate to quickly and accurately indicate the winner. Or get both – the entire EZ Start Raceway – at the same time. It is made of durable, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) to last for years.

The EZ Start Gate works on a floor track, the FasTrak Elevated Racetrack, or the EZ Track Raceway sold separately.
