In today’s video I want to show you how to make drag racing boat from wood. I came up with this idea when I made Mad Truck from one of my previous videos. This simple DIY project is not only going to save you a trip to the toy store, but also save you some money.

All it takes to complete this project are a few cardboard boxes, some glue, and your children’s imagination.As a race track I used pvc pipes with finish flags.If you want to build same boat all needed measurments are included in the video.

Add your CO2 cartridge into the hole at the back of your racing boat. Make sure the hole is not punctured in any way, or the cartridge will explode. Lastly, add your fish hooks. These are encouraged, but necessary, for your car.

Simply put, acceleration is the rate of change in velocity. When a CO2 cartridge is punctured, the equal and opposite reaction of the gas leaving pushes the dragster away from the launch pod. This force keeps pushing the car forward until all the gas is out, so the car keeps accelerating even after the launch.
