Reply to "Powering a McKeen Car"

I had an idea by the cylinder drive.  I would have a small pipe that is above the front axle, and would be powered by a motor width wise in the engine.  By doing that, the rubber band would always say vertical.  Although it would take some time to build, I think that is the best bet.  I have pulled apart both a VCR and a R.C. Car, but I don't think either have a good gear system.

Have you looked at all the drive parts available for RC cars?

 

Awesome job on the McKeen car so far BTW.
