using the power of air. Blow up the balloon using the carís exhaust pipe, let go

balloon racers in a blister pack. The racers can be used again and
does it work?
Place the carís plastic exhaust
pipe in your mouth and blow up the balloon. Hold the car with one finger firmly

expelled. Never under-estimate the power of air.
