Hey awesome... how much weight will it hold because when I made my own design when the wheels were attached it broke under the weight of my truck...

That's an impressive mechanism, with all the k'nex car parts coming out lately, someone will probably be coming out with an awesome car pretty soon.

the only sets i ever got was 'screeming serpent rollercoaster' and a 4000 piece package from ebay

There are so much more K'nex sets then the screaming serpent.

cant remember but it was a large red plastic box with models like large cars and a clown

I had a similar idea when I designed my knex car, but my idea used more hinge pieces, more that I had. :( That's why I used the four wheel steering system instead. Great idea!

author

*more than I had*

I did not get design from a different set
