I guess you could say this incredible kit was an accident. We had stumbled upon creating a double gimble system in our engineering lab and managed to squeeze in a pivot that pretty much allowed this kit to operate almost exactly like the real machine. So, we took our previous Batpod kit and mashed it up to support these new developments. The result is this technically fantastic piece of Batpod fun!
- Featuring our newly developed double gimble system that allows the "cockpit" or rider to stay upright and level with the road, whilst both wheels can independently tilt sideways to allow the machine to actually steer around corners!
- The gimble system also allows the rear wheel to spin SIDEWAYS! This is when the Batpod takes sharp turns and the rear wheel spins over and over. However, it needs to be manually twisted as a stiffener piece is used to maintain the model's strength.
- A pivot at the front of the machine allows the Batpod to straighen out into a lower form to speed under trucks and other low obstacles!
- Carefully chosen tires that spin easily, steer easily and allow the machine to stand up by itself!
- The whole machine follows the zig-zag frame of the real machine where each wheel is attached at only one side!
- All mounted in a strong, yet flexible frame to last countless hours of play!
