What is your favourite piece in Knex? Answered

Hi everyone, just out of interest, what is your favourite piece in knex?
My favourite piece is the little black end cap and closely following is the long black rod!
Did you know that the reason why the long black rod is stronger than the long grey rod?
The answer is because there is carbon in it!

Cool!

Motors and gears... they're awesome!

I once made a car out of knex, it was so geared down that it couldn't drive 1 meter before you had to change the btteries!

You spelt racecar backwards.

Ontopic:
Either those green/blue hinges, or yellow connectors.
Hinges, because they open up a lot of possibilities, especially "inside" something.
Yellow connectors, because they are the bulk of most of the stuff I post.

I've built the opposite end of the scale, geared up so far I literally twisted a grey rod 360* with the power!

Mine would have to be green rob because it is the most used. There is actually a rod stronger than the black one. It is a off-white color.

I love the green rod too, a bunch of them are great for an awesome shotgun projectile!

I'd have to say the black Y/hands because you can do a lot of interesting things with them. They're an odd length relative to other pieces. They also don't connect quite like a normal connector does, so you can do a lot of quirky things with them that you can't do with other connectors.

Cool!

I have always had tons of those little pieces, they come very handy especially for offsets in car bodies!
