Crazy Idea

I was cleaning out my dresser draw and i found a package of engines that you put i model rockets and i said what the hell lets combine knex and rockets engines.I have just designed a rocket car out of knex i am hoping to see if it works in the next week if it does i will post it. For a fact i know some peices will get melted when the engine blows at the end of the cycle. I just wanted to get your comments

I tried this before, it was alot of fun actually. The housing i made for the engine was just a white (snowflake) and 6 red rods clipped onto it to make a tube, no parts were burned or melted, and i don't see why any would be, I've never personally seen an engine that blows up and the end of it's launch.
