 I don't understand how the wheels are suppose to move i have everything else done i just dont understand how the rubber bands make the wheels turn by winding them?

Sorry i am kinda new at building these things

you have to wind it up, you dont tie the rubber band to the axles, you have to wrap them around by winding the axle.
where is the other end of the elastic tied to?
How do you make it? Where are the instructions on how to mkae it. Please Help! :-(
you should post the ute in the background . it looks pretty cool

I think it's rather interesting how you made a knex car that doesn't require an engine making it lightweight and for that, more agile :D Could you please post it???? I wanna build it :)
general zee (author)  Skreetsha5 years ago
Probably wont post, It can be built from pics.
:( Ah well, i'll just try it myself :P

let me know how it goes.
I gave up on it. It was boring, lacked traction (making the wheels spin before it drove), and didn't have a long driving area ('bout 2 metres).

were you on carpet? Mine usually would flip over.
Mine was on wood, that explains XD

there is one rubber band for each axle, so if you build make sure you put them on right.
it looks interesting? what ca is that in the background?
