@Atibala The bearrings are a full loop. It's printed as a whole, no attaching/snapping involved.

Do the axis' just snap into the bearings once it's printed?

Just to let you know that I'll be bringing a bunch of these to Maker Faire Newcastle next month! Kids (and adults ;-) are going to love them, I'm sure.

@pete i did think about the jet plane.. we should test it out! ( there are always helium balloons that might do the trick ;)) thanks for the comment!

Actually if you can make it go this fast, you should be able to make a balloon powered jet plane? :) [nudge nudge]

So sick. Great work. I'm imagining version 2 having a rack-n-pinion steering system. @gs12... do consider that 3d printing isn't cheap in the first place...

Like it, but too expensive. If you could make it retail for $12ish...i think i would buy it (and maybe others)? Not being critical, trying to be helpful.
