Once Car Maker instructs you to pull the handle, you must immediately pull it all the way down in one continuous motion until you hear “Complete.” For best results, DO NOT pump handle when pulling it down and complete the injection within 2-3 seconds. If you do not pull it all the way down to complete the injection, Car Maker will keep repeating the phrase, “Please pull down handle.”
You need to fine tune the spray nozzle by turning the adjustment nozzle all the way to the negative side (-). Then while holding the trigger down, slowly adjust the nozzle toward the positive side (+) until you get a nice even spray. You should also make sure that the pen is fully inserted by pushing it all the way into the slot on the spray gun until you hear/feel it click.
You can combine your pens to get more color combinations. For example, you can get green by applying blue and yellow inks over each other. First apply a thin layer of one color until you get the desired coverage, then switch pens and apply an even layer of your second ink. Try making your own combinations!
The very first time you use Car Maker, you need to insert 2 wax sticks. Car Maker comes pre-loaded with 1 wax stick. The second stick you insert is not meant to fit completely inside the machine – it will protrude through the top. After you have made your very first car, only 1 additional wax stick needs to be inserted every time. Please note that ALL wax sticks must be inserted with the point side down.
Variations in Hot Wheels cars are the slight differences between cars of the same model.For example, with the many different wheel styles available, the same car model can have a wildly different look just by changing the wheels.
After you’ve airbrushed your car, lower the turntable into the drying chamber by turning the handle on the far right counterclockwise toward the ground. Rotate the knob outside the chamber all the way to the rightmost setting to turn the fan on. Air will blow inside the drying chamber and dry off your car!
You need the appropriate piece of equipment, such as a flotation device, big-wheel tires or wings, to access certain areas. You can get this equipment in the Workshop, which you can find by following the green tool icon, then pressing the action button once you arrive at the Workshop hangar.
You can customize your vehicle in the workshop.Follow the green tool icon to find the workshop hangar.
There are multiple types of customizations that you can make:
One-shots are one-time game modifiers that you can use to improve your performance, such as nitro bursts that give you faster speed. However, after you use a one-shot, you no longer have it anymore.You would need to unlock another one to use it again.
Add-ons are customizations that can be used forever on your vehicle, such as tires or weapons.Once you have unlocked them, they are permanently available for your use.
In order to modify your vehicle in the workshop, tap any icon in the circle with your finger and it will take you to the page where you can unlock it, if you have enough credits.
Those that are green are unlocked and your car is currently equipped with that item.
Those items that are orange are already unlocked, but your car is not currently equipped with that item.
Those that are grey are unearned.
You can purchase more credits to unlock specific one-shot or add-on modifications. Once add-ons are purchased, they will always be available to equip your car.
Since 1968, when Hot Wheelscars were introduced, we have manufactured tracks in many different colors, yet the color that sticks in the minds of most people is orange.As in the past, we will continue to manufacture tracks in many different colors that will vary from set to set, and year to year.
If you cannot press the handle down, have an adult unplug the machine, wait ten seconds and then plug it back in to reset. Car Maker will automatically go into the cooling cycle. Do not unplug during this time. After you hear “Cooling Complete” and the door opens, try the following:
Check the mold for blockage. See CLEANING section in the instruction sheet.
Look into the front window on the machine. Ensure that there is a wax stick in the heating chamber and that the wax stick above it is properly aligned.
If your car body came out only partially completed, see instructional video or try the following:
Ensure you are inserting enough wax sticks into the machine and they are positioned next to each other in the proper alignment (point side down). Remember, it’s normal for one of the wax sticks to protrude from the top.
Ensure the handle is pulled all the way down in one continuous motion and the injection is completed within 2-3 seconds until you hear “Complete.”
Ensure the mold has been thoroughly cleaned before starting your cycle.
The booster needs to be correctly assembled to its designated wall bracket in order to function. The designated wall bracket has a notch on it. This notch ensures the motor only works when attached to the bracket. All other brackets are flat.
