This little racer is the fastest available – it will travel five meters in 1.5 seconds or less – and travels a total distance of 15 meters or more. The simple construction of this racer is made even easier with precut and predrilled pieces. All parts come ready to assemble, and four high-tech, low-rotational inertia wheels are included. Features a five-inch propeller and bearing, adjustable steering, replacement rubber bands, and instructions. Requires white glue, hobby knife, T-pins, and needle-nose pliers, sold separately.
