Drag Racer out of Actobotics


This past week a few of our R&D crew had fun building a drag racer out of Actobotics. It's a pretty simple design and would be a fun project to duplicate and then customize.

Watch the video to see the dragster in action "off the line" and check out some more close-up pictures below. We'd love to hear what you think in the comments!
