then join the two spring motors together with yellow rods and spacers, as shown.
Note that each spring motor has an arrow on the top of the casing. The arrows must point in opposite directions, or the spinner will not spin.
Now turn the frame over, and attach the motor assembly as shown.
Next assemble the two axles, by adding to a yellow rod
1. A snap cap black. 2. A wheel. 3. A tan clip, with the pin pointing towards the wheel. 4. Two silver spacers.
Push the tan clip on each axle along the rod, so that the pin engages with one of the central holes in the wheel.
Turn the frame over, then push each yellow rod through the red connector and motor, as shown.
Turn the model over again, and add a yellow rod to each red connector, as shown, so that the rods lightly touch the ground.
You spinning vehicle base is now complete.
1. Turn the spinner upside down. 2. Turn both wheels in the opposite direction to the arrow on top of the motor, until each motor gives a clicking sound to indicate that the motor is fully wound. 3. Whilst continuing to hold the wheels, turn the model the right way up, and place it on a flat smooth surface such as a tabletop. 4. Release the wheels. Your model should now spin around at speed.

Can you build upon your spinner base to make a spinning vehicle to your own design?
Why not start by adding some rods to the top of the blue connectors?
