    thats really cool! but... ...i don't have the steering thingy, would that pose a problem? as in the way it moves. or can you make it without the steering thingy?

    well it runs on the largest knex motor"burnout drag engine" which has the steering system builtin and since its radio controled with out actually having the original burnout dragster set it would be hard to do. but if you do have the original engine and not the front you could easly build one hope this was of some help

    COOOOOOOL! I think that you could post a video of it going down the sidewalk or something. I was looking forword to seeing it go. The video only showed it move out of the camera shot.
