take a Mabuchi 130, take 2 to 3 floss lines and wind them together, use a gear to attach the lines to the motors shaft and instead of letting them winding around the shaft....you make em stick out on the outside of the gear....so what happens the motor spins the lines and in that way it get's knots what shortens the line and lift the car up....how simple can it be? Just like a spinning wheel... ;)

QVO..........hey jevries, have you tried "HH" hopping string? i use it for some high power hoppers and dancers. i think its better then floss of fishing string.

but make sure it doesnt touch any plastic parts. it will cut in to the plastic. :(

besides fishing line, which is very good for hopping and last a very long time, I use kite lines and they come in numerous thickness' and strenghts. Note that floss thread you only use on the knot tech it's absolutely not good for hopping!

If it doesn't lower your car you must have one of the following problems:

You don't use a DPTD toggle switch which allows the motor to spin both ways.
Your line cuts into the plastic of your chassis.
There's not enough weight for the car to drop down.
The axles lock because of wobble and wiggle.

Check the above list.
