Stick-Shifters By Euphrates
Stick Shifters were another SSP variation. Unlike Blasters, Road Devils and Ricochet Racers
Stick Shifters were battery powered. The set came with a car and a launching area with a minature
stick shift attachted. How did it work? Load the launching pad up with 4 "D" cells, put the
car on it's ramp and start shifting from first up to fourth. When the "gears" hit fourth
the car takes off.
Like most of it's cousins Stick Shifters didn't come with track. You just whipped it down a sidewalk or the middle of Elm Street. That's one reason why they are hard to find in clean condition now. If you do locate one you will have to pay for it because they are very popular and for some reason fairly scarce.
