ongratulations on your purchase of Excalibur
Electronics’ radio-controlled Subaru Impreza 1:20 Scale
car. This full-function model has features that include
air-filled rubber tires, telescopic antenna, front-wheel steering
trimmer and sporty decals. The radio transmitter is also included.
Your Subaru Impreza is easy to use, but be sure to use it safely.
Before starting, please read this manual thoroughly, especially
noting safety, care and battery information. Keep this manual
for reference.
Battery Installation:
Make sure that the On—Off Power Switches on both the car and the
transmitter are set to “Off” before installing any batteries. We recommend using alkaline batteries for best performance.
Car Battery Installation:
Open the battery compartment, located on the bottom of the car, by
sliding the latch with your thumb in the direction of the arrow. (See
diagram below.)
Lift the battery cover off and then install the 3 AA batteries (not
included), making sure to match the polarity (+ and -) with the diagram inside the battery compartment. (See diagram below.) Then
replace the battery cover.
The legendary King Arthur brandished a
magic sword, Excalibur, from which we
take our company name. With this unique
weapon in his hands, he could not be vanquished.
Although Excalibur Electronics can’t claim
the magical secrets of Merlin, King
Arthur’s court wizard, sometimes our
patented technology may make it seem as if
we could. The radio-controlled Subaru
Impreza car is another unmatched innovation of Excalibur Electronics.
We make you think.
Remote Control Transmitter Battery
Installation:
Find the battery compartment on the back of the transmitter. Use a
small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw. Remove the battery
cover by sliding the latch with your thumb in the direction of the
arrow. Install one 9V battery (not included) in the compartment, mak3
ing sure to match polarity with the diagram inside the battery compartment. (See diagram below). Then replace the screw and tighten gently.
(See also Battery Information on page 9.)
Maintenance and Care:
• Never drive the vehicle on a wet floor, or in sand, mud, rain or snow.
These conditions can damage your vehicle.
• Do not expose the vehicle to extreme temperatures.
• When storing your vehicle, please remove the batteries from the
vehicle and the transmitter.
• Protect your vehicle’s wheel mechanism from foreign objects such
as lint, hair and dust by using a small brush, tweezers or a small piece
of cloth tied to the tip of a toothpick
to wipe the wheel off.
• Use only a dampened cloth to clean the vehicle. After cleaning, use
a dry cloth to wipe off all the water. Never use any chemical agents
to clean the vehicle.
Helpful Hints:
• If the vehicle is not responding to the transmitter, make sure the car
is not beyond radio signal contact by moving the vehicle nearer the
transmitter.
• If the vehicle starts to lose power, replace the vehicle’s batteries.
• If the vehicle starts to move slowly, this can be caused either by
weak
batteries or by foreign objects in the
wheel mechanism. Check the
wheel first, and clean, if necessary,
4
by using the instructions listed
above in Maintenance and Care. If
the wheel is clean, replace the
vehicle’s batteries. Remember that
the 9V battery in the transmitter will last longer than the 3 AA batteries in the vehicle.
• When the transmitter range decreases, replace the battery in the controller.
• Your control of the car may be interfered with by someone using a
CB radio near you. If this happens, move the car and transmitter
away from the CB radio.
Caution:
• Do not apply any electrical shocks to either the vehicle or
transmitter.
• Do not run the car during a thunderstorm.
• Do not touch the vehicle’s wheels when the vehicle’s Power Switch
is turned “On.” This is extremely
dangerous.
• Do not leave the vehicle or transmitter near sources of heat or under
direct sunlight for extended periods of time. This may damage the
sensitive electronic instruments within the vehicle and transmitter.
• Do not operate the vehicle near small children, as this can be very
dangerous.
• Always select a safe place to run your vehicle. Never drive your
vehicle in the street.
• Rechargeable batteries are to be removed from the toy being
charged.
• Rechargeable batteries are only to be recharged under adult
supervision.
Operation:
Extend the telescopic antenna of the controller to full length for best
performance. For maximum range of control, always keep both
antennae straight up.

Set the car and transmitter Power Switches to “On.” The car is ready for
use. Use the transmitter’s control levers to steer the car. (See diagrams
on next page).
Trim Switch Control:
The switch is located on the underside of the vehicle between the two
front wheels and is used to align the wheels for consistent straight-line
driving. (See diagram below).
Trouble Shooting:
IF THE VEHICLE DOES NOT MOVE:
• Are the vehicle and transmitter Power Switches set to “On”?
• Is the vehicle too far away from the transmitter?
• Is the metal tab in the battery cartridge flattened so it doesn’t touch
the tip of the battery?
IF THE VEHICLE DRIVES SLOWLY:
• Are the batteries exhausted?
IF YOU EXPERIENCE POOR RANGE CONTROL:
• Is the battery in the transmitter exhausted?
• Is there strong interference in the area from CB radios or other interferences?
