Build a battle tank from a few LEGO pieces.

Step 1: Grab Your Pieces

1x4459 Technic, Pin WITH Friction
1x3708 Technic, Axle 12
1x6582 Wheel 20x30 Balloon Medium
1x x89 Rubber Belt Large (Round Cross Section)
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.
my dad showed me how to make these with a cotton reel as well, when i was little my dad and i spent like an entire day making stuff likt this, ahh good times
that thing or whatever won,t even move lol
