The Pitsco 36685 GT-FX wheel is a narrow wheel with six spokes, made of lightweight injection-molded polyethylene plastic, and can be used as the front wheel on many model car designs. The lightweight polyethylene wheel reduces mass and increases the speed of the car, while the narrow tire width reduces friction during a race. The wheel fits a 1/8-inch diameter axle. Its design mimics the look of real dragster wheels, but can be used on any model car design. The GT-FX is a good choice for a shell dragster with internal wheels because the axle hole extends all the way through the wheel. The wheel is made in Pittsburg, Kansas. A wheel is typically used in an educational setting when building model cars or dragsters to study aerodynamics and physics.

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
Pitsco Education develops K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum, educational kits, and classroom tools. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Pittsburg, KS.
