The racer car has a magnet embedded inside. When you place the included horseshoe magnet near the racer car, it will attract or repel it, depending on the orientation of the magnetic poles.

The same principle of magnetism demonstrated in this little kit is also used to propel special trains that can travel at speeds of over 300 miles per hour. These trains are known as magnetic levitation trains, often abbreviated as MagLev trains. MagLev trains are used in many countries, including Germany, Japan, and China.
