Default Plasmacar or Wiggle Racer?

As you all probably already know, I am a huge fan of the Wiggle Racer. Does anyone know what the difference is between the original, and the new PlasmaCar? They look very similar.... did Sure Grip buy Wiggle Industries Inc?

Cool

Ya plazma car bought wiggle racer, and the process on how they cure them. But the new plazma car colors are different. The green plazma car is now the soft one and the red is the firm. But dont ride it yet...cuz they are not completely cured. It will feel like yer wiggling in mud

It may depend how much you weight too. If you aren't a heavyweight, it may not take 5 years for this to cure enough for you to ride.

Hey. Check out the instruction video for the PlasmaCar and then check out the other videos related to it. There is one video that has Tokyo Drift in the title. Check it out. Those guys are taking the toy to the extreme, but it's pretty cool.

As a spokesperson for Wiggle Racer industries i can tell you this. Plasma Car is in no way shape or form associated with Wiggle Racer. As of right now we have filed a lawsuit against Plasma Car for copyright infringement. Until further notice this is all that can be said at the moment.


Thanks for your time,

Mr. Wiggles

Mr. Wiggles,
I would like to thank you for taking the time to post on our internet forum. You are undoubtedly very busy fulfilling orders for the holiday season.

Is it safe to say that the company that manufactures the PlasmaCar does in fact not check every finished piece with calibrated feelers before shipping them? I am interested in purchasing only the highest quality vehicle.
Thank you for your time,
Fresh Edward Fresh.

As the founder and CEO of Hair Club for.... errr PlasmaCar Incorporated I would to take this opportunity to refute my competitions completely false claims that we are infringing on their copyright. It will be through useless lawsuits and litigation wasting millions of the taxpayers hard earned money that we, PlasmaCar Incorporated with emerge victorious and bury that "other" company in enough red tape that they won't be able to manufacture a whoopie cushion without our OK.

Thank you,

Walter Davis
CEO PlasmaCar Incorporated.

Please do not bring the good name of Whoopie Cushion Inc. into this sordid affair. We are under huge pressure to maintain our good name, and will raise quite a stink if we must.

Sincerely, Sir Fartsalot

You would be correct! "Nothing Wiggles like a Wiggle Racer!"

The new Wiggle Racers are the same molds and formula, but the red one is now firm to distinguish from the older ones.

There is an origianal "old school" wiggle racer on Ebay at the moment $700 BIN. Man the price on these has dropped since the new models came out. It was only a couple of monts ago these were going for at least 5 times that.
