Manually operated means 30 is also provided for con
trolling the direction and speed of movement of the racer
in use. This control assembly 30 includes a pair of shafts
32, each of which is provided with an outwardly open

spike 38 is received.
The spike 38 is also projected
through a central opening 40 in a cap 42 that is secured
to the adjacent end of the shaft 32, such as by a fastener
