some1 should make like a giant tank that can support a person and has controls...all you woul;d need is

-a whole **** lot of knex
-some super glue, to make sure it not break
-a bis @$$ motor
-and some more knex
and maybe a big rubberband

knextank (author)arrow shot2011-08-11

good idea, but u need a lot of wheels, u will have to put wheels every 2 or 3 inches again so the tank doesn't breaks .

hootydavis (author)arrow shot2008-01-20

ill get to work that thank for the idea :)

knextank (author)2011-08-11

I use stronger treds made with white tubes and small grey parts, always 1 light part in the middle and 2 dark parts left and right of it, when u attach 2 wheels on each side of a motor ( leaving an opening between the weels ) the treds will have a lot of grip and won't slide away !

rde (author)2008-01-04

jayg5000 (author)2007-12-30

That is a nice simple tank! Has anyone tried to add to this and add some armor or a gun?

killer towels (author)jayg50002007-12-30

i have made a double barrel morter that goes about 20ft but it is a manual where you have to physically pull it back,but it does have a trigger.

Doctor Who (author)2007-12-30

I got my motor from the loopin lizard set, the exact same motor to be exact. 2 of those are $24.99 on

arrow shot (author)2007-12-30

cool .i tried to put a motor on the tank from the gear set,but i couldnt find a way to put it in >.< finally something nice and simple that people without 10thousand knex peices can build lol

GorillazMiko (author)2007-12-29

Dang..I don't have that kind of motor. :-( Well, at least I think I don't.

you can use any other kind as long as it has a chassis.

X_D_3_M_1 (author)2007-12-29

finally none of those stupid little guns that crowd the site....

DanAlmighty (author)2007-12-29
