Step 4: Attach the Drive Wheels

Picture of Attach the Drive Wheels

Use a liberal amount of hot glue to attach the straw pieces to the frame. Make sure to glue the straws to the gap that was created when making the frame (picture 1 & 2). This placement ensures that the drive wheels are pulled against the edge of the frame when the car is wound up. If the drive wheels are glued or taped anywhere else on the frame, the force of the wound-up rubber band will rip it off.
