Cox sold a bunch of Prop-Rods, primarily for two reasons. First, the 11-9″ toy generated considerable customer appeal with it new and unique design. Second, the toy had a tendency to self-destruct thus creating repeat business. Most tether racers would continue to run until turning over or running out of fuel. The plastic/aluminum Prop-Rod, however, would continue to run even after turning over and thereafter would thrash about until it ran out of fuel.
