Research on K'nex Cars

Post by MayaKawakami on Fri Feb 26, 2016 4:55 pm

The websites I viewed and read were as the following, and I was not able to post the links based on my new regestration:
The first website was directly connected to how to make a k'nex car that goes fast. I noticed that they used five wheels (one not touching the ground) and was used to keep it stable.
The second website was focused on the factors that make a car go fast. One factor was about the weight of the car, and how the lighter a racecar is, the faster it will go through the wind. Though we are building a car made of plastic parts, my group may try having a more lightweight car.

I like how you found a website that uses five wheels rather than four, and that making the car lighter makes it go faster. I think I might try using five wheels rather than four in my group's car.

I like how you wrote about the five wheel car cause it will be a great addition to my group. This information will help our group to stable our car.

Five wheels instead of the normal 4 or 3 seems to be popular, it is worth a try!

I like the idea of using 5 wheels, I never knew that it relates to the speed.

I really liked how you actually explained the details of the car you might build. I also liked the part about using 5 wheels, not 4.
