 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.

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)Skreetsha2008-11-12

Probably wont post, It can be built from pics.

Skreetsha (author)general zee2008-11-12

:( Ah well, i'll just try it myself :P

general zee (author)Skreetsha2008-11-19

let me know how it goes.

Skreetsha (author)general zee2008-11-19

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.

Skreetsha (author)general zee2008-12-03

Mine was on wood, that explains XD

cool, 3.5* the way you place them makes the gear/wheeled one looks like this:

Man your really good at making cars... i bet one day your going to design the cars of the future ;D! Bah you proabably won't...

general zee (author)mrbox2008-09-02

probably not.

general zee (author)2008-06-02

there is one rubber band for each axle, so if you build make sure you put them on right.

general zee (author)Ghostsniper2008-06-11
