Hi, Welcome to my instructable !
In this instructable i will show you how to build a Robot Racer !
The robot racer is a fast, fun, easy-to-build elastic band car.
The car uses recycled tubes, bottle tops and even recycled elastic bands.
If you skim through this instructable and like it, it is entered in the Klutz Competition and i really need your vote !!
Thanks and i hope you enjoy the instructable !
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- 1 Cardboard tube
- 1 Elastic band
- 4 Bottle Tops
- 1 Kebab/Barbecue skewer
- Craft knife / Scissors
- Dremel (only if tube is really thick)
- Glue Gun
The tube can be a recycled toilet roll tube, my tube originally held a roll of kitchen foil
Post-Men drop elastic bands all the time when their doing their rounds, have a look on the pavement/sidewalk when you next go out
The bottle tops need to be larger than the tube so look on milk bottles or cleaning products !
I got my kebab skewer from my kitchen but any thin rod will do !
