LEGO Rubberband Vehicle

So, anybody got any ideas? The vehicle could be anything, from a small car to a giant helicopter to a miniature boat. But, it may only be powered by rubberbands, and should run as long as physically possible.

You should get an idea how that can be realized!
I got them recently and they are simple yet effective!

This was one of my favourite childhood models to make.. lots of fun.. and didn't need many parts.
I think I remember modifying it a bit, to include a ratchet mechanism.. so you could just lift the arm up, without having to pull the wheels back.
Lego did a couple of rubber band official sets.

The instructions for the "Easy Rider" #8202 Bungee Chopper set are available at http://us.service.le...ns/default.aspx . After you type in the set number, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of that webpage to see the downloadable building instructions (for both the Main and Alternate models).

That's interesting! In fact, when I think of medievil catapults that didn't use weights to store potential energy, they used lots of ropes that were twisted.
