I have wanted to do this for a few weeks now, except on a much more massive scale... My goal is to someday make a full scale cardboard moving tank so that I can ride my way across campus safe from the denizens of the blizzardous winters in this state, safe from death...
As it is, this entire race car is made out of cardboard, gorilla glue, and wood (wheels and dowels only).
Pretty much a bamf race car. videos at the end!
Unfortunately for the car, and for everyone else since they can't see it, the car was run over by a truck at the bottom of a hill we raced it down... so we no longer have the race car... My only regret is that we stopped the video too soon.
Step 1: Choosing your Size
We roughly picked the dimensions to be 4 feet long and 2 feet wide (no actual measuring was done for dimensions).
Cut out a large sheet of cardboard of this size, we will glue everything onto this board (double-corrugated cardboard is the best!!!)
We next sketched a rough estimate of what the car was to look like-
yep, real professional vocab here :)
The next steps will show you how to make these...
