3  Slip the axle through the two middle holes in the 4-stud bricks.

4  Attach the 24-tooth gear on the left side of the axle, then attach the two tires on each end of the axle.

5  Attach the 8-tooth gear to the Motor Cube's axle.

6  Attach the Motor Cube on top of the two 4-stud bricks, so that the 8-tooth gear fits into the 24-tooth gear.

8  Gather your toilet paper roll, tape, and scissors.
