    I made a large 4 cylinder that works by pushing the pistons to turn the crankshaft. It's also hooked up to a tranny with a driveshaft. Gonna build it with a full chassis and wheels.

    please get back to me on that, I'm curious

    i'm planning on, right after i finish cleaning up the huge pile of k'nex around it that is usually a result of my experimentation with it, y'know, cams shafts, rocker arms, and the like

    i just knew you would say that, i've had 159 comments for the last hour or two.

    nvm, it's just funny that your the one to have 160 comments, since it was up for grabs, like for five hours before you commented
