Race for the chequered flag
Build your Hexbug gear racer from over 100 specially designed snap together pieces and watch as you take the lead, with your very own high speed racer. The Hexbug VEX Gear Racer has been specially designed so you can have fun while experiencing principles of engineering and energy.

High speed STEM learning
Learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics with a hands-on approach and watch your racer speed off to the finish line. Pull back on the racer to store tension within the rubber bands and let the racer go. The energy stored is then converted into kinetic energy by using a system of gears to give the racer a boost of speed, leaving any trailing behind.

Easy to build, hours of fun
The Hexbug VEX Gear Racer can be built completely by hand without the need of any tools, glue or batteries. Easy to follow instructions make it easy for you to snap together each piece so you can see exactly how the racer works. Learn about gear ratios using an adjustable system of gears to let you choose between high speed and high torque modes which adjust the distance the speed racer can cover. Once the energy runs out and the racer comes to a stop simply pull back on the car and your good to go again, no batteries, no fuss.
