If you are new to the world of Ugears clever mechanisms, the Desert Buggy is one of the models you want to start with. It won’t overwhelm you with the amount of details as some of our more advanced-level models might, yet, the assembly of the buggy is an interesting and very engaging process. Here you will need to use the colour step-by-step instruction manual that comes with the model, but no glue or extra tools are required – everything you need for assembly is provided with the set.
The Desert Buggy is driven by a rubber band motor. Due to an open style body design, you can see the movement of the gears and wheels in the working motor. Just wind it up, pull the switch in the rear side of the model and your buggy will dart ahead. Or not ahead: you can adjust the direction of movement of your tiny vehicle by turning its front wheels – make it run in circles chasing its tail if you like! While the front wheels make your buggy manoeuvrable, the back driving wheels also provide stability. The rear wheels are larger and have rubber band tires that ensure better surface traction and a smoother ride.
If you still aren’t convinced that the Desert Buggy equals an exciting time, we’d say that only two Buggies can beat how much fun you can have with this model. Why? The explanation is very simple – two Desert Buggies is a race.
