Wheels-On-Air is proud to announce our new model. We have yet to try it out, but instead of using heavier wheels we decided to use a simple bubble tea straw for the body (yes that's it) along with the wheels we have stuck with from the beginning. So to give you an image there's 6 parts in total, the 4 wheels attached to the sides of the bubble tea straw (2 on each side) and the straw itself along with the balloon attached at the end back of it. Wheels-On-Air Corp. will let you know how this turns out a.s.a.p.
Recently our corporation has tested our new model out (which is our logo as well), we are sad to say that it hasn't been going as well as planned. Our model is fast for sure, but it doesn't quite go straight. It has gone in random directions, and I think the problem may have been because of our wheels. We thought the wheels would be heavy enough considering the body part isn't exactly heavy but we were wrong. We will have to test our model out with other sets of wheels and see how well that works. As soon as our model works fine and meets our standards to fit your needs, Wheels-On-Air will let you know.

Wheels-On-Air has decided on it's first idea towards making a balloon powered car. We will make the car with a typical straw laid on a rectangular cardboard piece cut out and a heavy set of wheels to stabilize the car. Wheels-On-Air believes this idea will prove to be effective because while aerodynamics plays its part to make sure the car can go as fast as possible, the heavy set of wheels will be able to keep the car in a straight line if all goes well according to plan.
