A magnet mounted under the car is attracted to the steel guide rails of the race track giving the car incremental downforce and grip. This allows the car to stay on the track at higher speeds and gives improved high speed stability and cornering ability. The race is far more exciting as the cars speed around corners and accelerate away down the straights. The cars slow for corners more sharply too, giving the race real energy. But be careful, when the magnet looses attraction to the steel guide rails the car becomes a real handful!

Neodymium magnets are also available that have significantly more magnetic attraction.
