Step 2: Decide whether you’d like a basic chasis or if you’d like to make it a radio controlled car (an optional rechargeable battery/charger is suggested but not required).

Step 3: Choose your wheels and tires (note they’re sold as sets of 2 with front and rear tires distinguished, so you’ll need a total of two sets of each). There are even tires that carry the Lightyear brand name, just like the movie!
