I think I've seen a building kit distributed by the offical Knex people that builds up to something very similar to this.

That is soo cool!

jollex (author)2008-11-16

This is really really cool! If you were in TGKT you would totally win round 2 with this!

I built it and modes 1 and 3 work but the one where you have to move the tan clip doesnt work for me

untd103 (author)benboy2072008-11-16

If mode 2 doesnt work then alter the tension of the bands to create more or less friction on the gear.

one motor? this is fantastic. Coolest knex ride I've seen (besides roller coasters, but I can't build any of those)

DJ Radio (author)2008-11-15

OMG, thats amazing! And finally, something ORIGINAL! 5*
