    Drift Cobra Racing car – the new supercar in Ugears Automotive collection.


    We know you love car modelling and you love the Ugears Dream Cabriolet, Roadster, and U-9 Grand Prix. Well, make room on the shelf, because a powerful new mechanical model just muscled its way into the Ugears Automotive collection. Introducing the Drift Cobra Racing Car, a beautifully-styled, two-seat convertible - our twist on what may be the most revered sports car of all time: the Shelby Cobra 427. The Cobra 427, produced between 1965-67, had a 7.0 litre 450-510 horsepower engine, did 0-60 mph in just over 4 seconds, and had a top speed of 185 mph.


    Driven by a powerful spring motor, the Ugears Drift Cobra racing car has the fastest team of horses under the hood of any mechanical wooden model we know. The model is wound by means of a ratchet knob under the chassis. Before winding your 3-D wooden Drift Cobra model racing car, move the air filter that protrudes from the hood toward the windshield, and flip the switch in front of the passenger-side seat into the Lock position (parallel to the door). Now twist the ratchet underneath the car's body. After 6 to 6.5 turns of the knob the spring is fully loaded, and — vroom! vroom! — your racer is ready to roar! Set the gear shift lever, located between the driver and passenger seats, to the desired position (Reverse, Neutral, Drive). To start the model, set it down on a flat surface, slide the air filter forward, and watch your Cobra lay rubber in a spin out (start with the wheels turned to one side), do circles, or speed down the track in a straight line.


    We think this 3D puzzle / DIY model is a beaut, with its fat tires, bulging curves (thanks to pieces that are precision laser-cut into fine 1mm plywood), a big open mouth up front, and open-air convertible design. This wooden car's moving parts include turning front wheels, doors that open, and a hood and trunk that can be raised. Instead of a rubber band motor we've used a powerful spring mechanism to provide the "muscle" in this racer and extend the model's usable life. The ratchet mechanism means you don't have to hold the knob the entire time you're winding the model—potential energy is stored with each twist, without slippage, until the strong internal spring is fully loaded.


    To put the model in "drift mode", turn the front wheels fully to one side or the other, set it down on a smooth surface such as tile, and watch as the model peels out in a sideways skid (ideally, your model should make a half to a full revolution before continuing forward, depending on the driving surface and turn angle of the wheels). When the wheels are set in their straight position, the model covers a lot of ground - 8 meters or more! Set the wheels in a gentler turn, or put the racer down on a less slippery surface, and watch your Drift Cobra complete two or three full circles.


    The DIY model kit for the Drift Cobra Racing Car includes 370 parts, with an estimated assembly time of nine hours, and is rated Advanced level. Everything you need for this challenging but doable DIY wooden puzzle project comes right in the box:



    • high quality plywood boards;

    • laser-cut pieces;

    • snap without glue;

    • metal spring powers the mechanism.


    Conclusion.


    Ugears model kits appeal to builders and hobbyists who love quality, clever design, and who appreciate ingenious mechanical elements with real world analogues. The Ugears Drift Cobra Racing Car is a great DIY idea and perfect gift idea for the car lovers among your circle of friends and family. Anyone who loved the film Ford v Ferrari, who loves car modelling, DIY projects, 3D puzzles, or who appreciates outstanding mechanical and aesthetic design, is going to love the Drift Cobra Racing Car.

    Skvelý model! Dokonca by som povedal, že je to jeden z mojich najlepších modelov. Pekná konštrukcia, skvelý návod. Špeciálne poďakovanie za kovový motor a voľnobeh. Odporúčam a čakám na podobné modely so železným motorom)

    Je to určite super a modely Ugears sa vždy veľmi pekne zbierajú. A pružinový motor je skutočne jednoznačnou revolúciou, pretože gumové motory nakoniec strácajú svoj výkon, gumičky sa trhajú, naťahujú a t.ď.

    Bolo by super implementovať model s elektromotorom s diaľkovým ovládaním. Dalo by to veľa emócií! Napríklad v mojom roadsteri vm01 je dostatok miesta na umiestnenie takejto jednotky. Ovládanie je možné implementovať prostredníctvom aplikácie v telefóne. Podľa môjho názoru by bolo nádherné mať drevené modely automobilov s diaľkovým ovládaním.
