Custom Cruiser Vehicle Design Kits

SKU: No option selected
A Pitsco Exclusive
From $17.95 (USD)
Availability: No option selected


Students use this kit to complete an exciting vehicle design project that culminates in a race competition, much like the Metric Dragster activity. Wide body blanks (3" x 3" x 12") allow for car designs that are closer to production-car proportions.

More emphasis can be placed on car styling and learning the industrial design process than on car performance. The activity can be a follow-up to a clay car design project (clay materials and tools sold separately).

Realistic wheels have removable hubs that can be painted. Requires a drill, coping saw, wood file or rasp, finish, and a race system, sold separately.
