  • i used a 2cm thick and 4cm wide piece of crap wood to make the body but a 2 by 2 cm piece would be easier
  • i think drawing the body free handed al lot more easy than making a tamplate , to avoid split ofs you can use some cleare packing tape
  • don`t throw the cut of ( picture 3 ) away you can use it for the head of the driver

    Step 2: Dril some holes

    drill with a 6mm drill bit the holes for the axis on the marked spot in the picture

    and than drill with a 8mm drill bit the hole fore the ``neck of the driver`` you can make that by glue in a small peace of wood

    Step 3: Making the head

    for this part you need the inner tire of a bicycle and some all glue.

    cut 3 peaces of tire of the same ticnes as the wheels , than make a cut in 2 of the rubbers and glue the first 2 peaces arount the wooden wheel .

    put some extra glue on the third (uncut) peace of rubber an force it around the hole thing .this dont need any clamping pressure .

    repead the proces 3 times and the weels are ready
