Based on our number one selling mousetrap car kit, The Basic Kit, Show Off is the first of its kind kit that comes with completely reusable and interchangeable parts. Show Off was designed to be used as a demonstration model for instructors and/or a reusable kits for students but will also makes for a great science fair project. The mousetrap can be attached and then reattached to any of the three predrilled mounting locations in order to investigate how the location of the mousetrap effects performance. Show Off comes with three different length lever arms so students can change see how the pulling force is effected by the length of the lever arm. Show off also includes three different sized drive axles so students can see how the axle and wheel gearing effects both speed and travel distance. Show Off also comes with wheel treads for investigating traction and friction. Both CDs and DVD layers are included for investigating rotational inertia. Show Off comes ready-to-assemble with pre-cut and pre-drilled parts so you can be ready for action in less than 30 minutes and then take it apart and reassembled it all over again. As with all our kits, Show Off Kit comes with step-by-step instructions that are filled with tons of top secret performance tips and tricks that have been developed exclusively by Doc Fizzix so that you will have all the information you need to make your Show Off a success.
