Description

This ultra-fast rubber band racer can travel five meters in one second! Engineered to generate a tremendous amount of torque by the stretching of a rubber band, the Sling Shot optimizes the transfer of potential energy into kinetic energy. The design of its ultra-sticky foam wheels provides maximum traction and keeps the Sling Shot from spinning out at the starting line. The result is a clear winner for all speed contests.
