&nbsp;what kind of wheels did you use, bc all my lego wheels fall off the axis?
The wheels are fairly standard Technic wheels.<br /> <br /> Here's a<a href="http://www.peeron.com/inv/sets/8236-1" rel="nofollow"> link</a> to a set that uses the same kind of wheels and axles. (The website is used for piece inventory.)<br /> <br /> Also, if you don't have the right wheels, you could always pick up a cheap Technic set that has the right ones.<br />
i need fishing rod and knex!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 <br>
um.....do you have to use a fishing rod and i think it is better if there is a video of how to build it.
very nice
we have not made this yet, but i guess it looks cool enough to give it a try.
that's a really easy way to make a <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.davidoverholt.com/blog/2009/02/mouse-trap-car.php/#comment-2518">mouse trap car</a>... plus using a lego will help reduce weight... which is good for long distance cars and fast cars....<br/>cool!<br/>
