The Wind Up is Legendary vehicle in Crash of Cars.
Lethality lies in simplicity and a few more cranked gears. Goes true both ways.
Wind Up is, hence its name, a wind-up car. It has a spoiler at the back, a large gear, and headlights.
After reversing for up to 1 second, Wind Up gains a temporary speed boost for 0.5~5 seconds, proportional to the amount of distance covered in reverse.
During the boost period, Wind Up gains greatly increased acceleration and top speed at the cost of handling. The next boost cannot be triggered until the current one expires.
Although Wind Up has low base stats normally suited for passive play, its speed boost allows for versatility. While temporary, it exceeds the top speed of almost every other vehicle, allowing it to easily pursue and destroy foes or flee from oncoming threats. It is furthermore not dependent on power-ups and is therefore a more reliable choice.
The user must time their boost properly for maximum effect with prior preparation, and constantly keep themselves on the move. Without its boost, the vehicle can be easily overwhelmed even if it manages to trigger the ability shortly after.
- Without boost, Wind Up drags a transparent trail behind, similar when a vehicle is under effect of a map speed boost.
- Whenever the ability is used, the audio of stepping on a map speed booster is heard, and the vehicle drags 2 smoke trails for 1.5 seconds.
- The Wind Up's ability is a reference to the real-life pullback motor utilized in some toy cars.
- Similar to the in-game vehicle, when pulled back, these vehicles' internal springs will charge up. The springs will then unwind and push the vehicle forwards.
