Hot Rod Furious Mouse
Assemble me. Turn on the power!
When you see a hot rod car on the street, what first draws your eye? Is it the custom paint job, the shiny chrome details, the souped-up engine, or the body modifications that transformed a boring factory model into a beautiful supermodel ready for the auto show catwalk? Hot rods are personal automotive visions brought to life. They are pure passion (va-va-vroom!)—the outward expression of a deep-seated love of cars. They are someone's baby, someone's pride and joy—the type of someone for whom the idea of buying and driving a factory car is unthinkably lazy and dull.
At Ugears we get it. Our engineers and designers understand the kind of automotive obsession that borders on crazy, that leaves your spouse wondering why you'd rather be in the garage or workroom tinkering late on a Saturday night. So here you go, all you crazy car fans, all you beautiful builders of beautiful machinery: we bring you the Hot Rod Furious Mouse, the first model in the new Dual Motors collection by Ugears. Start your Dual Motors collection today, and get ready for more model cars to set your car-loving heart a-thumping.
The Hot Rod Furious Mousecar model has dual engine functionality: you can wind the spring motor by giving six full rotations of the ratchet key located on the model car's undercarriage, or you can simply pull the Hot Rod back along a flat surface then release and watch the car speed off, as you would with any pullback toy car. Turn the front wheels of your Hot Rod left or right to make graceful turns, or race down the straightaway. Other details in the Ugears Hot Rod Furious Mouse include realistic scaling, wonderful detailing on engine and interiors, and twin doors with lock and handle mechanism.
The Hot Rod Furious Mouse model kit has 207 parts and is rated "Easy" level. Simply punch the pieces out of the laser pre-cut boards then snap them together following our illustrated step-by-step instructions in 11 languages (English, Ukrainian, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean). Even beginner model builders should be able to assemble this DIY toy car model in 4 hours or less, then enjoy hours of play. Hot tip for assembling your Hot Rod Furious Mouse: "develop" the chassis (i.e., make sure all moving parts are lightly sanded and lubricated, and that all gears move smoothly through test runs) before placing the body module on top. Like all of Ugears' outstanding line of 3D puzzles, DIY model kits, automatons, robots, wooden puzzle boxes and STEM Lab model kits, you don't need glue or special tools to assemble your Hot Rod, everything you need comes right in the box.
The Hot Rod Furious Mouse is a spiffy addition to our growing catalog of Ugears race cars, motorbikes, trucks and other outstanding automotive DIY models. It's a great gift for any car lover or 3D puzzle enthusiast. It can be left in its attractive natural wood state or colored or painted in a custom color scheme of your choosing. Go ahead all you super hobbyists—color, modify or soup up the Hot Rod Furious Mouse to your heart's content! It's in the spirit of the thing, right?
