Year Information: With the same turnaround action of the Stox cars these bangers are similar to cars raced at banger meetings throughout the country. A careful flick on the throttle as the car is approaching the middle of a flat curve will send these vehicles spinning around to race back in the opposite direction. Some experts will soon be able to rotate their cars through complete circles and come out of the manoeuvre in the direction they want.
