Annihilator 

Your RadioShack Annihilator is built to 
handle the road, whether the road is the 
hallway in your house or the sidewalk out- 
side. Built to Vio scale, it can reach speeds 
of up to 1120 feet per minute! It has super- 
size racing wheels to handle the straight- 
aways or rough spots, and two gear 
speeds to handle most racing conditions. 

The Annihilator’s electronically controlled 
gearshift lets you change gears at the 
press of a button on the transmitter while 
the Annihilator is moving. When your 
friends stop to change gears on their cars, 
you can move right on by! 

Note: You need the following items (not 
supplied) to power your Annihilator: 

• at least one 9.6V rechargeable battery 
pack for the car 

• one 9V battery for the transmitter 

• one battery pack charger 

Warning: This car can reach higher 
speeds than many other radio-controlled 
cars. Be careful to avoid high-impact colli- 
sions with people and objects. 


THE FCC WANTS YOU TO 
KNOW 

Your Annihilator or its transmitter might 
cause TV or radio interference even when it 
is operating properly. To determine whether 
your car or its transmitter is causing the inter- 
ference, turn off your Annihilator and its 
transmitter. If the interference goes away, 
your vehicle or transmitter is causing it. 

Try to eliminate the interference by: 

• moving the Annihilator and its transmit- 
ter away from the TV or radio 

• contacting your local RadioShack store 
for help 

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the 
FCC requires that you stop using your Anni- 
hilator. 

Changes or modifications to this product not 
expressly approved by RadioShack, or oper- 
ation of this product in any way other than as 
detailed by the Owner’s Manual, could void 
your authority to operate the product.

USING THE BATTERY 
PACK 

You need a 9.6V rechargeable battery pack 
for the car. Before you use the battery pack, 
you must charge it using a special battery- 
pack charger. 

Once you charge the battery pack (according 
to the battery charger’s supplied instruc- 
tions), follow these steps to install the battery 
pack in the Annihilator. 

Cautions: 

• Use only the required battery pack and 
charger. 

• Do not charge (or recharge) the battery 
pack while it is in the car. 

• When you disconnect the battery pack 
from the charger, do not pull on the con- 
nector’s wires. Otherwise, you might 
damage the battery pack. 

• After you charge or recharge the battery 
pack, disconnect it from the charger. 
Overcharging the battery pack could 
damage it. 

1. Set OFF/ON on the side of the car to 

OFF. 



2. Use a coin to turn the two battery com- 
partment latches counterclockwise until 
they stop, then lift the cover up. 



3. Put the battery pack in the compartment 
with the battery pack’s connector on the 
same side as the car’s matching con- 
nector. 

4. Attach the battery pack’s connector to 
the car’s matching connector. Do not 
force them! They fit only one way. 

5. Close the cover and then turn the latch- 
es clockwise until they stop to secure 
the battery compartment. 

When the car loses power, remove the bat- 
tery pack from the car and recharge it ac- 
cording to the battery charger’s supplied 
instructions. 

Warning: Dispose of old batteries and bat- 
tery packs promptly and properly. Do not 
burn or bury them. 

Cautions: 

• Do not recharge a battery pack immedi- 
ately after use (while it is still hot). Allow 
it to cool first. 

• If you will not be using the Annihilator for 
several days, disconnect the battery 
pack from the car. 

Important: Contact your local, county, or 
state hazardous waste management authori- 
ties for information on recycling or disposal 
programs in your area. Some options that 
might be available are: municipal curbside 
collection, drop-off boxes at retailers such as 
your local RadioShack store, recycling col- 
lection centers, and mail-back programs.

INSTALLING THE 
TRANSMITTER’S 
BATTERY 

The transmitter requires one 9V battery. 

Cautions: 

• Use only a fresh battery of the required 
size and recommended type. 

• Never leave a dead or weak battery in 
the transmitter. 



1 . Press down on the battery compartment 
cover and slide it in the direction of the 
arrow. 

2. Place a battery in the compartment ac- 
cording to the polarity symbols (+ and -) 
marked inside. 

3. Snap the cover shut. 

When the transmitter’s range decreases, re- 
place its battery. When you finish driving the 
Annihilator, be sure to turn off the transmitter 
to preserve the life of the batteries. 


INSTALLING THE 
TRANSMITTER’S 
ANTENNA 

Insert the telescoping antenna into the slot 
on top of the transmitter, then turn the anten- 
na fully clockwise to secure it firmly in place. 


DRIVING THE 
ANNIHILATOR 

Warning: Never play with your Annihilator in 
the street. 

Caution: Do not drive the Annihilator in pud- 
dles, on a wet floor, on sand, or in mud, rain, 
or snow. These can damage it. 

1. Pull out and fully extend the transmit- 
ter’s antenna. 

2. Slide ON/OFF on the Annihilator to ON. 

3. Use the transmitter’s speed control trig- 
ger and steering wheel to drive and 
steer the Annihilator.

Speed Control Trigger 

• Pull the trigger to the left to move for- 
ward. 

• Pull the trigger to the leftmost position 
to drive in turbo. 

• Pull the trigger to the right to move 
backward. 

Steering Control Wheel 

• Turn counterclockwise to move left 

(L). 

• Turn clockwise to move right (R). 

• Release to go straight. 

4. Press the gear control button on the 

transmitter to set the Annihilator’s gear. 

• For driving on a smooth surface, 
press the button so it stays down 
(high gear). When driving in high 
gear, the red indicator on the trans- 
mitter lights. 

• For driving on a rough surface or on 
an incline, press (and release) the 
button so it pops up (low gear). When 
driving in low gear, the green indica- 
tor on the transmitter lights. 

Notes: 

• The Annihilator might make popping 
or grinding noises when you press 
the gear control button. This is nor- 
mal. 

• If the Annihilator does not respond af- 
ter you press the button, pick it up 
and turn its back wheels by hand. 
Then try again. 

5. When you finish driving the Annihilator, 

slide ON/OFF on the car to OFF. 


WHEEL ALIGNMENT 

If the Annihilator does not go in a straight line 
when you release the steering wheel, adjust 
the wheel alignment control on the bottom of 
the car. 


Slide the control toward L if the Annihilator is 
pulling to the right, or toward R if the car is 
pulling to the left.

HELPFUL HINTS 

These hints can help you get the most enjoy- 
ment from your Annihilator. 

• For maximum battery life, we recom- 
mend you start (from a complete stop) in 
low gear. 

• Running your car continuously for long 
periods generates high heat levels. Heat 
causes wear and tear on the motor. To 
help keep heat levels down, when your 
car’s battery power dies, let the car cool 
at least 10 minutes before installing a 
new or newly charged battery pack. 

• The Annihilator uses more battery pow- 
er to run in high gear than it does in low 
gear. If the battery becomes weak while 
you are in high gear, you can usually 
drive the Annihilator in low gear for 
about 1-2 minutes. 

• If the car moves slowly and you have in- 
stalled a fully charged battery pack, 
check the wheel mechanisms for lint, 
thread, hair or dust. 

• If someone uses a CB nearby, it might 
interfere with control of the Annihilator. If 
this happens, move the Annihilator and 
transmitter away from the CB. 

• You cannot operate your Annihilator 
near devices with transmitters that use 
the same frequency as your car (27 
MHz or 49 MHz). Check the Annihila- 
tor’s box to see which frequency your 
car uses. 


CARE 

The following suggestions will help you care 
for your Annihilator so you can enjoy it for 
years. 

• Do not drive the car through puddles or 
mud, on a wet floor, or in sand, rain, or 
snow. These can damage it. 

• Do not expose the car or transmitter to 
temperature extremes, and do not store 
them in direct sunlight or near a heat 
source. 

• Do not leave the car or transmitter out- 
side overnight. Night dampness can 
damage their electronic circuits. 

• To protect the car’s mechanisms from 
lint and hair, do not drive the car on car- 
pet. 

• Wipe the car and transmitter with a 
damp cloth occasionally to keep them 
looking new. Do not use harsh chemi- 
cals to clean them. 

Modifying or tampering with the car’s or 
transmitter’s internal components can cause 
a malfunction and might invalidate the car’s 
warranty and void your FCC authorization to 
operate it. If your car is not performing as it 
should, take it and the transmitter to your lo- 
cal RadioShack store for assistance.
