    Moved my post from the shelf to here!

    Because technically what I'm making isn't a model..

    As Im living with my parents and were already working on a car atm, ive had to postpone my own rod.. even collecting parts so im keeping myself motivated with this.

    I dug out m K'nex the other week and was sitting around wondering what I could do with it as my knowledge with cars and mechanics has grown quite a bit since childhood!

    My first thoughts were a miniature 32 ford! But looking through photos on the HAMB I saw some sling shot dragsters.. IDEA! So a sling shot it is.. Flathead v8(with moving bits!)

    Only one gear. Throttle and Clutch will be added.. Everything will be driven by a Drill motor because the switch can be used as a throttle and you can have several speeds so that will be usefull!

    Engine:




    Seeing how to go about making it look like a flatty




    Will be posting more updates in a few hours or so.. Forgot to check everything could move freely when I ran it on the drill motor and a piston desided to rip itself apart..

    I know this isnt a car, or a real engine.. but it helps me learn and keeps my mind working!

    Heyy there.. Was thinking of a 32 ford.. but the body wouldnt work with knex pieces.. so im goin for a sling shot dragster, just tried some different gear ratios to see how cast i could get everything going out the back of the gear box and almost got a wheel to the face. joy. i read somewhere a while back that theres a club of knex nerds like myself that build drag cars... though i think mines a bit bigger than theirs aha..

    And unfortunately Lee I dont have a real one to work with im trying to get hold of a real flatty to start building my damn rod!
