here's one that Jevries built. now, this one is a VERY technical one. so dont get discouraged and say "forget this!" lol
you can build alot simpler ones than this but it thought i'd post them just to give you some ideas of what goes on in these things.
not to mention i absolutly love this thing. awesome awesome piece of work :thumbsup:

I'm sorry for the late reply.. Wish I had pics to post but all I have is pics of my stuff in the air, no setup pics.. Anywayz here's how it works... You have an electrical motor whish has a shaft that spins when electricity is ran to it.. Sorta like your China or Prestolite in your car.. Well We attach fishing line to the motors shaft and run it under the car and to a "u-bar" or "t- slider" whish it attached to the car's wheels.. When the motor's shaft turns it pulls the wheels down forcing the car up. If your motor is fast enought to pull those wheels down real hard it'll even get off the ground depending on your motors, the size, weight, and the volts that you run to the motor(s). If you was to see one in real life you'll sti there and more than likely go,"Oh, so that's how it works" Sorry if you still don't understand, I tried my best. Let me know if there's anymore questions.! ;)
