Racing R/C cars across the floor is terribly last century, don't you know. Well it is here at the Firebox Toy Testing Centre (busy, us?) because we've got our mitts on the jaw-droppingly astounding Zero Gravity Micro. Believe it or not, this sporty little racer is capable of driving across any smooth surface; horizontal, vertical or even completely upside down. Mad, eh?
Just an ordinary racing car?
Zero Gravity Micro R/C Car sticks to the wall like a vacuum
Super manoeuvrable, Zero Gravity represents the next generation of upside down-driving vehicles (of course the category exists) as it is smaller and nippier than ever. And that's quite something for a car that can spin around on the ceiling and perform gravity-defying moves as it scrambles up the wall. Best of all there are four frequencies available, so you can indulge in some truly wacky races - last one to the crack in the ceiling is a rotten egg!
Drives up walls!
So how does it work then? Well, Zero Gravity Micro features an advanced Venturi suction system that works a bit like a vacuum cleaner. Special fans create massive down-force to keep it glued to the wall whilst flexible skirts around the chassis ensure the vacuum remains sealed. You control the action via a stylish twin toggle infra-red transmitter and the vehicle itself is powered by a rechargeable battery. Simply charge and go.
Micro size, huge powers
Although your gob is liable to be constantly agape, you needn't worry about inadvertently swallowing your Zero Gravity Micro when its juice runs out because its headlights start flashing when the battery is low. What's more, you can adjust performance according to the surface: Regular Mode gives outstanding ground control whilst Extreme Mode fires up the fan for vertical and upside-down action.
Recharge the battery using your remote control

If you're looking for a palm-size vehicle worthy of a place in the hallowed Pantheon of Ludicrous R/C Playthings, Zero Gravity Micro is just the ticket. The only downer is the inevitable neck ache. But who cares about that when you're performing 360°'s next to the chandelier. The only way is up... and down, and across...
