We used to make these with a cotton reel (I guess spool in America) What you seem to have missed out is the 3/4" bit of candle between the drive prop and the spool. It acts as a friction regulator, and yes before the days of computers this was a stock toy for boys to make and race. Ah innocent times
ya. in the USA u call it a spool.

No offence but see cotton reel tank it's easier.
Nice instructable. I need that big white thing and that special rubberband. I like it!
so you basically need half the parts? ill just steal legos from my brother's room! He wont mind he has so many.
