Cheap toy tank projects #2 rubber band power

Another very simple project on this Tank series. I just replaced the existing flywheel motor with a rubber band. Why would you ever want to do this? Maybe if the friction motor was broken. I do intend to do more complicated modifications but I am getting the very simple ones out of the way first. You may notice neither of these first two modifications have involved cutting or drilling the existing tank in any way, just a bit of hot glue gun work.
I cannot answer comments from people who have blocked replies, so if you don't get a reply to your question that may be the reason. It is probably worth reading my video description first because the answer may already be there. If you need a reply make sure your Google+ privacy settings allow replies from users that are not in your circles or add me to your circles first.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
