    can i modify it?

    It's a cool looking k'nex chainsaw, but as stated by other posts before, it's little more than a stylized chainsaw. Looking like it could roll around on it's own hardly makes it a bot. Making the motor operate the wheels is a start, but then it strikes me more as a chainsaw cart. If you really want a bot, it will take plenty more work. I'd say a minimum would be for it to be able to be controlled to saw, go forward, and turn.

    Some added functions that would then be frosting on the cake would be to make it go backwards (easy if it goes forward), raising the saw is a little more involved, or if you're quite clever, you could try for some kind of bump control that can change it's direction. Even posting some general instructions would be a good addition. The detail you include in your plans depends on whether you want people to follow your plans like a formula, or if you want them to be forced to use some ingenuity in their design. It's not much of an INSTRUCTable if you only show off what you made.

    I'm looking for fans of K'Nex to send in pictures of their creations to be featured in a new magazine called Beckett BUILD. Please contact Doug at to submit your creation.

    Wow! This Really Is Awesome! It Might Be Great For A Battle Bot! But I Have One Question: Don't The Teeth Of The Chain Break Down When You Hit Something???

    Why? I don't tell you to go away if you say anything bad on my ibles. Hell, I didn't even say anything bad about this, just meh. You need to learn to take criticism.

    its the fact that everyone ELSE is saying its awesome but whenether that happens you hate it
