Why can’t I drive the Mach V? I mean look at that car. It is awesome. Take a glance at the abridged version of the specs:
The hub of the Mach 5â€™s steering
wheel features seven lettered buttons, each of which activates a customized accessory designed by Pops Racer.
Control A: â€œReleases powerful jacks to boost the car so that Sparky, our mechanic, can quickly make any necessary repairs or adjustments.â€ Although designed for this practical function, the auto jacks have also been used to â€œleapâ€ the car short distances at high speeds, as a wedge to prevent the car from toppling over a waterfall, as an alternative braking systems, and as a tool to crush cars in a car-wrestling match.
Control B: Sprouts special grip tires for traction over any kind of terrain. At the same time, 5,000 horsepower is distributed equally to each wheel by auxiliary engines.â€ Definition of â€œany kind of terrainâ€: firm, icy, or unsteady ground; ocean floor; vertical mountainsides.
Control C: â€œFor use traveling over heavily wooded terrain. Powerful rotary saws protrude from the front of the Mach 5 to slash and cut any and all obstacles.â€ The rotary saws have also been used as a means of self-defense.
Control D: â€œReleases a powerful deflector which seals the cockpit into an air-conditioned, bullet- and crash-proof, and water-tight chamber. Inside it, I am completely isolated and shielded.â€ The deflector also protects against sleeping gas.
Control E: â€œThe control for special illumination which can be traversed singly or in tandem, and which enables me to see much farther and more clearly than with ordinary headlights. Itâ€™s invaluable in some weird and dangerous places that I race the Mach 5.â€ When used with the â€œnight shadesâ€ attached to Speedâ€™s helmet, his vision is enhanced with infrared light.
Control F: â€œUsed when the Mach 5 is under water. First, the cockpit is supplied with oxygen. Then, a periscope is raised to scan the surface of the water. Everything that is seen is relayed down to me by television.â€ The 100-pound auxiliary supply of oxygen is enough to last for thirty minutes.
Control G: â€œReleases a homing robot from the front of the car. The homing robot can carry pictures or tape recorded messages to whomever or whenever I want to send them.â€ The robot also can carry handwritten messages, X-ray film, rope, and small Egyptian statues, and it has been used as a means of defense. The bird-like device is operated by a built-in remote control within the cockpit. A separate button sends the robot â€œhome.â€
