A simple car, but with squishy wheels. You can throw it, crunch it, even drop it from miles high, and it'll be fine. It drives through a ball pit like it's solid ground (mostly), climbs up about 40 degrees, and much, much more probably! :lol:

Seriously though, the only problem with the wheels that I can think of, is they have to be connected to the car somehow, so one of those cross-bars that you see is connected to the body by a center hinge for each wheel.
The problem with that, is that the car has one ridged bar per wheel, and the rest squish, so that makes it bounce a bit at high speeds.

I hope you have fun with this wheel design. I know I did! :coolgrin:
And if this design was somehow created by somebody else, I swear that I made it up on my own.

maybe attach the rods all to a circle on the center of the wheel?
Uhh...I don't quite understand. Do you think you could upload an example or explain a little bit better? I'm not sure of what you're thinking of, but if I am right about what your idea is, it won't work out right.

I think the idea you have is you cut the cross-bars in half, and connect them all to a circle. Am I right?
thats pretty much right
Well, the only way it'd squish, is if it squished to the side, not squished in.

Like this:.......----...........----.................................................................
....................|.0.|..........|.0.|.................................................................
....................|...|............|....|...............................................................
....................|...|..............|....|.............................................................
.................__|...|__.........__|....|__.......................................................
Normal--->|___0___|........|___0___|<---Squish

0--hinges
.Period--spacers

It'd just squish to the side like that, instead of squishing in. I have another design in my head, and if it doesn't work, I'll try your idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
