Make a speedy snail racer from LEGOs! It's faster than you think.


1  Gather your Cubes, LEGO®s, and other materials.

2  Collect the two 16 long bricks and place side by side.

3  Straddle the Battery Cube on one end so that it is one quarter off of the edge.

4  Attach the Motor Cube close to the Battery Cube.

5  Gather the bushing, axle, gear, and wheel.

6  Slide the axle in between the two bricks, with the gear and bushing on the outside and the wheel in the middle.

7  Use the two short wires to connect the Battery Cube to the Motor Cube.

8  Put the remaining wheel onto the Motor Cube.

9  Stretch the rubber band around the wheel onto the Motor Cube and the gear. Turn the Battery Cube on and watch your snail speed about the room!
