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?

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.

ya, I was going to say the same thing. If you are too lazy to type out "this is for people who don't know much about using K'nex" then you have no right to be insulting others. I would also like to point out that if you don't like an instructable, just leave the page. There is no need to be a jerk.

Actually these are ever so slightly longer than the rods, I used them a lot on my moon base because blue rods couldn't reach. Look at my slideshow to see what I mean.
