Get in the driver's seat with Remote-Control Machines: Custom Cars. You'll explore the physics of speed, acceleration, energy, and aerodynamics.

There are many different types of cars, from race cars to pickup trucks. When designing and building cars, engineers consider these differences. All cars are subject to the same laws of physics, which govern their design.

In this kit, you will build ten models of different types of cars. You'll also learn about some of the engineerings that goes into designing a car. Once you've built the designs, try reconfiguring the parts to build your own custom creations. You could time each design and find which one is the fastest!

Instructions to build 10 different models:

  • Race Cars: Build a model of a sleek race car and a dragster to race around a track. Learn about the physics of cars and drag racing.
  • Luxury Cars: Construct a luxury supercar and learn about how the gears, engines and drive shafts of cars work.
  • Classic Cars: Build a hot rod and a hot hatchback and learn about some famous cars through history. Then learn about engineering a race car and building a speedy go-kart.
  • Modern Cars: Build a pickup truck and a truck to move cargo around. Then build a buggy to drive up hills.
