The Uncover series combines the best elements of a book with model elements to help readers truly "uncover" the mysteries of what makes things work. A fascinating three-dimensional presentation allows in-depth, hands-on exploration of the subject at hand. This unique "model" is easily built, deconstructed and re-built layer by layer, system by system just by turning a page, until an understanding of the topic is achieved. Explore the dynamics of a race car engine and learn about air flow and drag, safety equipment and roll cages, the fuel system and horsepower, suspension and track bars, and internal combustion. Interesting facts and experiments are also featured throughout the book including why race cars don't have speedometers, how roof flaps are designed like airplane wings, and the gas mileage on a stock car is about four miles per gallon.
