What can I build with this electronic kit?

Powered by two AA batteries (not included, Order Code sold separately Order Code L43AL) you can get a relatively high speed on a smooth surface. Experiment and see what additions or alterations you can make to the body, tyres, spoiler or even drive system to make the buggy move differently. This kit is suitable for ages 13 and over with adult supervision

How does the buggy work?
A motor inside the body of the buggy uses a drive belt to power the rear wheels. The spoiler at the back of the car creates drag which pushes the buggy down over the wheels allowing them to get more traction. This is similar to how a spoiler would work in a car. Spoilers and other aerodynamic surfaces produce so much downforce on a F1 racing car they could theoretically drive on the ceiling.
