The Basic Kit can be assembled in less than 30 minutes & will travel 25 – 45 meters for most first time builders.
Stock #1714 Basic Kit II
This car is designed for those who are serious about winning. This kit features many enhancements to our top selling Basic Kit, which makes Basic Kit II a guaranteed winner. Its design maximizes the mousetrap’s energy output over 200% greater travel distance while reducing the overall loss of energy because of friction. It can be assembled in less than an hour and will travel from 35 – 65 meters for most first time builders.
Stock #1716 Can-Dew Kit
Can-Dew is designed to carry a full sized soda can over 15 meters distance. Can-Dew has a special cargo bay that will hold a full sized soda can, egg, large mass, or just about anything you can dream up. It is designed to maximize the mousetrap's energy output over a 75% greater distance while reducing the overall loss of energy from friction and increasing the efficiency. Can-Dew's secret to success is the design of its high torque gearing system that generates a tremendous amount of torque and power output capable of caring large loads over great distances. Can-Dew can be assembled in less than 30 minutes and will travel from 15 - 20 meters with a full soda can for most first time builders.
Stock #1718 Double Trouble
This twin-powered mousetrap racer is turbo charged with two mousetraps for twice the fun and power output. Just like all ur kits, Double Trouble is designed to maximize the mousetrap's energy output over a 200% greater travel distance while reducing the overall loss of energy from friction. Double Trouble can be used for any challenge that allows for the use of two mousetraps. Double Trouble will travel from 40 - 80 meters for most first time builders.
Stock #1720 Build Your Own Kit
The Build Your Own Kit is a complete do-it-yourself mousetrap racer kit that includes all the hard to find parts for building your very own record setting mousetrap-powered racer. The Build Your Own Kit comes with a top-secret construction guide that is filled with tons of performance tips and secrets developed over the years by the pros. You will also get a collection of sample mousetrap vehicle designs to get you started building your own record setting racer right away.
Stock #1722 The Sling Shot
The Sling Shot is an ultra fast rubber band powered racer that will travel 5 meters in under 1 second. It is engineered to generate a tremendous amount of torque causing explosive starts and incredible acceleration. The secret to this racer's design is the pulley system used to stretch the rubber band instead of winding it, which maximizes the transfer of potential energy into kinetic energy. The Sling Shot is the clear winner for all speed contests and the design of its ultra sticky foam wheels are essential for keeping it from spinning out at the start line and providing maximum traction to the road.
Stock #1724 The Hover Craft
See physics come alive as the Hovercraft levitates and floats on a cushion of air as it glides across the floor. Two rubber band propellers power the Hovercraft, one that produces the lift and the other produces the thrust. The Hovercraft is so cool that it even works on carpeted surfaces. The Hovercraft was designed to travel a 5 meters distance. Make learning fun by challenging builders to amke theirs go the furthest or the fastest. This kit can be built for distance and/or speed. Assembly time is between 1 and 2 hours for most students.
Stock #1726 DVD Layer & Axles Set
Give yourself the winning edge over the rest of the competition. DVD layers have half the thickness and rotational inertia of a normal CD. Vehicles that use DVD layers require less pulling force and will see an increase in travel distance from 5 - 15 meters more than with CDs because more of the mousetrap's energy goes into the forward motion of your vehicle instead of the rotational motion of the wheels. With this set up you get everything you need to attach your DVD layers to your vehicle including axles, spacers, thrust washers, and step-by-step plans.
Stock #1728 CD/DVD Wheel Spacer Set
The CD/DVD Wheel Spacer is designed to fit perfectly inside the hole of a normal CD/DVD so it can be attached to a standard sized 3/16 inch brass axle. They are made of flexible rubber and designed for mousetrap powered racers. These spacers can also be used to center an axle between the frames of your vehicle in order to cut downon the side-to-side movement of an axle. This is a hard to find item and is really a must-have part for making a mouse trap powered racer. Spacers come in a pack of 20 with a complete step-by-step instruction guide.
