    No you cant, blues dont have holes in the middle.

    How the hell are you supossed to put a rod through it?

    you put in another blue connector!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In theory the shape of a blue connector will fit, but it’s impractical because to make it lock in place with a tan clip it would take more parts and it would be more bulky. You also would lose a lot of strength.

    but what if you run out of white connectors or blue rods?

    please take note of the what if

    I did.. And I said that the said person should get more knex.
    But, there are lots of ways to make knex work in ways they weren't meant to. You just have to mess around with it.


    im not starting another face war with someone so bye!

    Dude, im sorry if ive irritated you in any way but I only just told you your right.

    Dont worry about it

    you can also use 3 white connector for the small wide wheels.

    ok well i only have 7 so i guess i will have to buy more.
