If you enjoy this project, then I encourage you to buy my book, Rubber Band Engineer. It's full of more awesome and original projects crafted from household hardware. You can find it wherever books are sold.

This car can travel up to 40ft on a smooth and flat surface!

<p>This is a perfect DIY project to be done with loved ones during semester breaks especially if you have school kids at home. They get to be creative while picking up a thing or two about Science. Whilst accomplishing all that, we get to bond and promote family togetherness at the comfort of our own home sweet home.</p>
