Okay, so my science assignment is to build a pasta car. There is a compitition between all of my teacher's classes, and the other team's science teacher's classes.--losers have to buy the winners a breakfast party. Awards go to the fastest, and the most unique design. the only thing that doesn't have to be noodles,are the wheels. we are allowed:
4 elbow macaroni
and a choice between 2 extra lasagnas or 2 extra manicottis.
What is the best way to go about this?
I want to go for fastest, so i'm thinking arrow-dinamic, using extra lasagna.
Any tips? or better ideas?

I think I would sketch a design.
Reserve two penne or ziti for axles, which will hold your spaghetti axles. Choose the largest spaghetti for axles that can fit into your wheel hubs. Make certain you choose wheels which are thin.
For the body, one piece of lasagna for the base of the car, glue the axle tubes (penne or ziti) to the lasagna. Then, for the rest of the body, make a form from clay or paper mache. Cook the other pasta well done, drain it, cut it into flat sheets, and while wet lay it on the form, and put it in a slow oven to dry. When dry,(2 days?) take if off , glue to the lasagne base. Attach the wheels, and paint.
