About: Hi, I'm KneXtreme. I'm a Christian and I'm home schooled. I love to build with almost anything especially knex. I also do Taekwondo and collect coins. Just so you know, I don't hang around youtube to…
This project was an attempt to make a knex hot wheels machine. Unfortunately it failed :-( The video explains why.

    Those offroad trucks would obviously not work

    That's cool! For the record, most of the Hot Wheels sets never worked right, lol. The track design looks nice. Also, did it work with Knex balls? :-P

    This is awesome, truly innovative and epic! Even though it doesn't work, it was a joy to watch. That loop was great! Maybe you could use some thin(er) tubbing to reduce the friction, as for the lift I agree with Sorunome.

    Very good idea! I think all that this needed to work better is to lengthen the distance inbetween the landing ramp and the banked turn. I'm really impressed with the overall concept though.

    This is a good idea. As a matter of fact I've been working on my own version of a knex HW machine-but I've integrated hotwheels track, and used a hotwheels motor instead. it allows the machine to have more paths and "elements."

    Thank you. I was going to use hot wheels track but I didn't have enough of it so I tried this version.

    Your version sounds pretty cool. Are you going to post it?

    Cool idea, too bad it didn't work.
    Maybe the lift problem could be fixed by making it more like a rollercoaster lift on the top part, instead of that sudden drop like thingy.
