K'nex Car (mini) Instructions!

Introduction: K'nex Car (mini) Instructions!

About: Hello I am Devin, A.K.A Jingo69. I am a student, lover of cars, K'nex/Lego, and art. I mostly post K'nex car creations but plan to post other ideas in future too! …

This is my knex mini! these are the instructions for it! (before you rate, please read everthing written and make the car as I dont have a way to show you properly how the system works)  it is a great little derby car as it is REALY strong. It has a realy clever system which helps the front and back bumpers to obsorb  impacts and the rubber bands makes the bumpers spring back. Aswell as that it does look quite alot like a mini. And sorry if there are any spelling mistakes (im only 12 years old ) the steps to make it are on the next page
here is more information about it...

pro's     20!!!

            the back end shape is not perfect

news 2

                        it has a clever new system made to obsorb impacts!!!                                                                        

                                          the stats (out of 5)
features                    *****                    5
the looks                  ****                     4
durability                  ****                     4

Step 1: Gather the K'nex!

This car takes 497 knex peices altogether and 6 medium rubber bands.

Step 2: Making the Front End

pictures: 1-4 please make, 2 and 3 are two pictures of the same thing
                 5-7 showing how to attach everything so far
                  8 making the suspension and system
                  9 how to attach it
          10-13 making the dials and dash board
          14-16 connecting the dash board together

Step 3: Most of the Middle, and Interior

this might be the MOST confusing step so let me know where I need more pictures! pay attension to all detail!

pictures: 1 and 2 please make
                 3-6 showing where to connect
                 7 showing how to make seats after you have done this put it to a side for now.
            8-11 pay attension from here onwards on this step! (these are some angles of what you need to build)
          12-21 tricky but its the best I can do to show how to connect everthing    

Step 4: The Back End

yaaay! that difficult step is done! its a bit easier from now...

pictures: 1 and 2 is showing how to make roof both pictures are of the same part
                 3 making the back suspension
                 4 and 5 showing where to connect it
                 6-8making the rest of the back

Step 5: Well Done You Have Finished!!!

Wow that took long but it was worth it!

    K thanks :) :) :) um I may rebuild the newest one not this (that one was a lot better and stronger.) These instructions were made quite a while ago and I obviously know better now, so I will consider re-doing them if I get time, okay :)
