     I don't understand how the wheels are suppose to move i have everything else done i just dont understand how the rubber bands make the wheels turn by winding them?

    you have to wind it up, you dont tie the rubber band to the axles, you have to wrap them around by winding the axle.

    I think it's rather interesting how you made a knex car that doesn't require an engine making it lightweight and for that, more agile :D Could you please post it???? I wanna build it :)

    I gave up on it. It was boring, lacked traction (making the wheels spin before it drove), and didn't have a long driving area ('bout 2 metres).

    cool, 3.5* the way you place them makes the gear/wheeled one looks like this:

    there is one rubber band for each axle, so if you build make sure you put them on right.
