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...

king1000 (author)JonnyDude20082009-07-15

i see what you mean but to be honest ive never actually used this on anything. Ive made an other one that wont break which is on my knex monster truck which is coming soon.

JonnyDude2008 (author)king10002009-07-16

wow the truck looks great! Thanks for the info on the steering. Can't weight to see your 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.

it is a modded version from a set

pls (author)The Jamalam2009-01-23

The Jamalam (author)pls2009-01-24

rs2king (author)The Jamalam2009-06-28

The Jamalam (author)rs2king2009-06-28

I have it in a set book.

I don't know the name but I have that set too.

king1000 (author)TigerNod2009-05-01

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

TigerNod (author)king10002009-05-02

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

Oblivitus (author)The Jamalam2009-01-24

Ahh, oh well.

knexfreak95 (author)Oblivitus2009-02-03

probly but it takes alot of talent to think of ur own and not copy

knex obsessed (author)2009-06-09

could it be fitted onto your street car? XD

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!

*more than I had*

king1000 (author)2009-01-26

I did not get design from a different set
