Our "EZ-1" dragster kit is legal to race in the Great American Dragster Derby. The EZ-1 is very easy to build and is recommended for a first time builder and racer.

The EZ-1 runs anywhere on its wide rear foam tires. The front suspension deals with an uneven surface and allows for direction adjustments. A special tool to wind the racer is included.

We recommend you use white glue to build your EZ-1. Due to the interlocking chassis design, you will successfully complete your racer in very little time.

Use markers to decorate your racer and keep it light. All the GADD dragsters you see on our website and videos have been decorated with markers.

Kit contents: The EZ-1 kit comes complete with all laser-cut plywood parts necessary to build the racer and the winding tool. All metal gears, axles, .187" rubber motor, windshield and small plastic parts along with an Allen wrench are included. Two rear foam tires and rim kits along with two grooved wooden front wheels with O-rings are included. Several ballast washers come with the kit. Detailed building and racing instructions will be emailed to you.

The EZ-1 can easily run a 50 ft distance in under 3 seconds.

You can improve the performance of your racer by applying Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). You can vary the following on your EZ-1:

Power: Adjust power through wider and/or more rubber string loops.

Gear Ratio: Choose from different pinion and/or crown gears to improve acceleration and/or top speed.

Wheel weight: You can change the wheel weight for more traction by adding weight to your rims.

Overall racer weight: Adjust ballast for optimal traction/ stability of your car.

Aerodynamics: You can sand your racer for better aerodynamics.

Overall Length: 15 inches or 38 cm

Curriculum: Spotlight on Teamwork, Careers & STEM (Available as a free download with each multipack purchase.)

We recommend that up to 5 students share one of our GADD racers and work as a team.

A team consists of:
• Crew chief
• Mechanic
• Driver
• Artist
• Public relations agent

Other students in the class act as race officials.

This is a real life scenario where students experience first hand what it is like to work together as a team towards the common goal of winning a race.
