Out of stock


Driven by a powerful spring motor, the Ugears Drift Cobra racing car has the fastest team of horses under the hood of any mechanical wooden model we know. The model is wound by means of a ratchet knob under the chassis. Before winding your 3-D wooden Drift Cobra model racing car, move the air filter that protrudes from the hood toward the windshield, and flip the switch in front of the passenger-side seat into the Lock position (parallel to the door). Now twist the ratchet underneath the car’s body. After 6 to 6.5 turns of the knob the spring is fully loaded, and — vroom! vroom! — your racer is ready to roar! Set the gear shift lever, located between the driver and passenger seats, to the desired position (Reverse, Neutral, Drive). To start the model, set it down on a flat surface, slide the air filter forward, and watch your Cobra lay rubber in a spin out (start with the wheels turned to one side), do circles, or speed down the track in a straight line.

Ugears Drift Cobra is a stylish two-seat convertible with front wheels turning and doors opening. It also features a hood and trunk which you can raise. A powerful spring motor puts the Ugears Drift Cobra ahead of any rival model car. First move the air filter protruding from the hood to the windshield, then put the switch located in front of the passenger seat parallel to the door (into the ‘Lock’ position). Wind a ratchet knob located under the chassis. You don’t need to hold the knob all the time when you wind it. The knob the spring is fully loaded after about six turns and your automobile is ready for action! Like in a real car, the lever for shifting gears can be put in Drive, Reverse or Neutral position. A powerful spring is used intead of a customary rubber band, which means the car is able to go further and has a longer usability than similar models.Place your Cobra on a flat surface, slide the air filter forward, and observe your car perform spin outs (turn the wheels to one side before putting the model in motion), go in circles, or race away in a straight line (of up to eight meters !).
