Watch sparks fly as dragsters and alternative energy meet!

The Shockwave Electric Car features a laser-cut racer powered by electricity rather than a CO2 cartridge, and, best of all, it is compatible with the same electronic race systems as CO2 dragsters.

The cars must be used with the Shockwave Control Module and Starting Blocks from the Starter Package as well as a G3 or F1 race system with launch pods. Requires a screwdriver, hobby knife or sandpaper, and white glue, sold separately.
