The original Aero Racer featured a dual motor setup. This is a completely overhauled pullback racer with three hard-coupled pullback motors. Combine that with large tires, and it makes for a superb setup for more than adequate torque and speed and exceptional distance run. Features flex axles and (non-functional) V8 piston engine.

SharkBot – Robotic Shark

The SharkBot robot is built with Lego Mindstorms Ev3 and is basically a modified version of Builderdude35’s Timmyton 5.5 robotic shark.
