Speedorz - Any uses at all?

Just a quick question.
Has anyone found any real 'AFOL' based usage for Speedorz packs?
For some reason I have ended up with quite a few which I think I bought for the pieces, but have not opened them yet.
I suppose I could have an army of skunks invade my Death Star...

    Aside from whatever assortment of parts they come with?

    If you build two of the wheels to be almost touching on their 'bottoms' then you can make a bar/tile launcher that makes flick fire missiles look like a child's toy. Oh wait.

    To be fair, I build them in multiples into tanks made from bionicle for my boys. You can link the pull cord things so they can be launched easily.

    A while back I used the wheels in a vehicle, powering two of them at once...

    As to the other parts, it depends what you got. I bought a load of the Gorzans, then sold off the minifigs as I really wanted the rocks, bananas and foliage.

    The Furty Fox set had a ton of great parts in it and one of the best minifigs in the entire Chima line.

    I have quite a few Gorzans, was thinking the same about the rocks and bananas etc.
    Would love to see a pic or vid or the combined speedorz @ccc if you have any.

    There are pictures somewhere, but it was a couple of years back. They aren't fast though, not when you add a lot of weight.

    @CCC I just read your thread from old now.  We have been doing this in our house as I said.  We avoided the jumping issue in two ways.  Firstly, the pull makes a huge difference, if you yank as hard as you can then it almost always goes wrong - it's all about the smoothness.  We also found that you can run multiple wheels, well 2, in a row with the same pull cord, although you have to avoid accelerating the pull after it comes out the first wheel obviously.  I had a vehicle with 4 pull powered wheels working for a bit, but it really wasn't that good.  Anyway, you probably solved it or gave up caring about a week after the initial thread, so nevermind.

    I connected two cords together at their pull tabs with a technic axle. That way, you can pull two of the wheels at the same speed.
