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
