Angry Drag mod

Hey thought I'd tell you about my drag car. I broke a couple steering springs and thought my car was dead than i decided to mod it...
I took wire cutters and cut the the whole car up (the plastic). That took off tons of weight. I also took a hot wheels car for the front wheels and took out the whole steerig unit. I decide to do a dual cell mod so I put the second battery in where the steering should be. After that came problems...
I had a broken back axel so I couldn't think of a way to get some rear wheels than more wires broke and i decided I'm done for now. Any ideas for a new rear wheel set up let me know.

it may be alot of weight to rotate, but it will be stronger. you can use a wire cloth hanger. cut a piece where it is completely straight. so no bends, and warps. then you would have to enlarge the flywheel, holes in the wheels, and the slot to put the axle in. but it would resolve the breaking axles problem.
and for wheels, it's just an idea, but maybe we can find some sort of "slicks" some large pencil eraser ends. those huge pencils you use in elementary school, and sometimes in sketching. the rubber erasers are huge, and would be interesting to try. but the axle may slip from that, so then i thought of another idea, to find something to cut the tips of the wire hanger, so it is like a hook. so you can put the rubber eraser in, then it gripps tighter from the sides. and super glue the end for a little more help.

you could use parts from a KIT racer (sold at target, walmart, etc) and use that axle, or get some music wire of the right size from the hobby shop
