Picture of How To Make A Rubber Band Car
If you have a school project, then this will probably make you the winner! This can even carry a size 5 soccer ball over 7 feet! This is my entry for the Make it Youth Contest. I hope this helps any other young builders out there. Along the way I learned that cardboard, with the right supports, can be really strong. I also learned that one rubber band will get your pretty far!

somehow, you should add rubberbands to the back wheels for traction

the best thing for CD disc traction is to cut both ends of a ballon then take the center piece and apply to CD

Can you explain how to add the Rubberband? I understand how to add more than one to make the car move, but for this year I'm required to add just one. How would I add it to the back axel and hook?

@whoohoo Never though of that. Good idea!
