But anyway. I want to show you a car, i built when i was ten. since then it lied in my knex box and now I want to show you how to build.

    Well, I know it has been more than two years since you replied to my Instructable, BUT:

    It's the Kne'x car with the typo in the heading (Bolide) and you asked why only two wheels are on the floor. Well, theres a picture in the middle-end of the slideshow were a red text says that 2 parts (purple half and dark blue 7/8 circle) are disconnected in order to make sure that everything works fine.

    They'r right in the middle of the bottom of the car (well, less chance that you still got this car and didnt destroyed it in order to build sth else), just disconnect them and all 4 wheels will be on the floor.

    I like the car. but next time could you make normal instructions instead of a slideshow. The slideshow function is difficult to follow compared to the normal option so please use it next time.

    my native language is german, its not easy to post something in another language

    and a "Bolide" is a german word for a powerful car or a racing car too. Most of my english I got out of computer games and in there they used the word bolide.
    But any way, next time I will check it before posting.

Nice job on this Slideshow, the pictures are good, and the instructions are easy to follow, and your English is okay, at least I can understand you! :-) Nice job! +1 rating.
