Introduction: K'nex Mini Cooper S Updated
The new mods are mainly for strength and for better appearance,and changing the over-all shape a bit, the air bags are 2 switches at front disguised as lights, when they are pushed it pushes a rod to make the airbag push into driver, it clicks in and the bag stays out until you flick the light up and lights spring forwards with airbag. the video on the older version shows you exactly how it work and the rest of the features like.....
AIRBAGS! can be modded for passenger and driver
other extra's like seat belts, and 4 seats
it is surprisingly really durable
interior with dials
boot with lots of space + no holes
original white mini roof
matching white floor
opening doors you (have to) use handle.
4 wheel drive rubber-band power
seats can be lowered and raised
car is higher so suspension is more effective
the wheels are more out so it looks better
when airbag isn't used the front lights are pushed out
the rubber-band power is good but isn't as powerful as k'nex moters therefore not powerful en-
ough but still does move a bit
It has no grip, you shouldn't put the tires on or the suspension won't work as well
As usual, here are my 'stats' for this car, these are in relation to other cars I've built in the past. (Out of 5)
The looks ****'
