Go for a trebuchet, or a ball-coaster.

Wow, you toy around with K'nex sometimes, too? How do you like it?

I have very little, but we have a little at school for demonstrating simple mechanisms - levers and what-not. It's OK, but Lego is where my heart is.

LoL. School? How old are you? Yeah, when I was like 12, they had 'em at my school for demonstrating the simple machines: ramps, levers, etc.

I could make a chair from knex, and it could prolly hold my weight, I've never tried my idea, but I will soon.

you could use the k'nex as a fuel for a fire...that would be the best use of k'nex in my opinion

yeah, that'd be way more deadly then a little whimpy fake gun that shoots little rubber bands that you could shoot with just 2 hands

not distance speed... you said feet per second so it doesnt matter how far it goes, please tell me your dumb enough to think it has to do with distance it'll make my day

Usually, high speeds=lots of distance... I guess not always. But usually (Unless you are talking about shooting a towel =/
And when i said that the gun shoots 400yrds, I am prooving what i said that many air rifles shoot 1500ft.
I never said anything about airrifles shooting at 500ft/sec. I just said that when someone says "very powerful" I think of 500ft/sec and a max range of 1500ft

you have to also keep in mind the weight and and poor aerodynamics of a knex peice and you'll see why a knex gun cant reach the distance and speed of an air rifle

Define "very powerful" The max a knex gun can shoot is about 100ft (30metres) When someone says very powerful i think about 500ft/sec and a range of about 1500ft. Many air rifles can shoot 1500ft (500metres)

When I throw a k'nex piece it usually goes pretty far. Just do that with your new tub of k'nex pieces.
