Description

The Side Draft is a Hot Wheels creation. It is powered by a 1100 HP 3.0L turbocharged aluminum W8 with side draft intakes, giving this car its name. It has a carbon fibre body on a magnesium chassis with coilovers, carbon ceramic brakes with 4 piston calipers, carbon fiber wheels, and 35 series rubber slicks. There is a triple nose cone. The front chin spoiler forces air to the front brake intakes, the front fenders drift into engine intakes at the rear with a spoiler which is half the side draft's girth. The back of the side draft has a rear brake outlet behind the rear lights and a transmission outlet inbetween. The engine cover is vented. The rear fender forces air to the sides of the side draft, which increases balance and creates a vacuum near the intake, creating greater suction. Air moves smoothly over the windshield, which covers most of top of the car but is also a quarter of the Side Draft's girth. The engine cover can also be opened on the toy version; in 2014, the casting was changed so that the cover is now integrated with the glass windshield so it can no longer be opened.

It appears in both the movie and comic versions of Highway 35, being a part of team Street Breed, and is driven by Dan Dresden.

It also appears in Stunt Track Challenge as a Stunt car.
