Knex Faster Car Idea.

Introduction: Knex Faster Car Idea.

About: My real name is Ryan.

This motor and gear idea will show you guys how to make a faster car. How faster you might ask?, more than two times faster. In this instructible I used a low-class motor found in the starburst spinner set. It is one of the slowest motors.

    Make the Wheels bigger as well. Here is a car that I made a few years ago with a gearbox to make it faster.

    Good idea, but the problem is that this will also reduce the grip on the ground. But it's nothing to worry about as long as the gears are not too big.

    its easy to make faster gearboxes if you know the ratio between the gears and the order you place them in small, big, small, big, etc... will give you torque big, small, big, small, etc... will give you speed

    Eh, I don't know what this would do but it seems.. useful, I guess? I have a different motor and gears so I can't test it.
