Step 1: The Spokes

you need to make 16 of them

Step 2: Rolling Strip

this touches the ground
you need to make it exactly as I say:

blue rod = b
white rod = w
and yellow connector = +

+b+b+w+b+b+b+b+b+w+b+b+b+b+b+w+b+w+b+b+b+b+b+w+b+b+b+b+w+b+b+b+b

and make it twiece

Step 3: The Motor

just follow the pictures

picture 8: their are 4 grey spacers

Step 4: Putting It Al Together

OK...
first place place those 16 spokes on the yellow connector with between two spokes a connector between. and the yellow connector you haf left, connect them to eachother with red rods.

second, you need two snowflocs for each side, adn put it togeter like this

third and last step, put the motor in and...

LETS ROLL

    As counter weight or making the whole thing smaller. In theorie you could make the whole wheel smaller but if you find a way too do that and keep it round and rolling, tell me.

    You need more weight where the wheels are. Try Batteries or hang the wheels closer to the ground. Hope it helps.

    Nice! Probably the first decent knex object I've seen on 'ibles. Would you consider joining knexinnovation.net? This is the kind of innovation we were hoping for on KI.

    Err, first decent knex object I've seen on 'ibles in awhile.

    Ive been wanting to build something simillar to this for as long as I can remember. My version would be a ball with a counterweight like yours, only the counterweight can swivel from side to side so that the ball can steer. Usually I dont read Knex ible's because they suck, but this one was interesting and innovative.
