I was originally going to re-create the Racing Snail from 'The NeverEnding Story' but I decided to just go my own way. Getting the shell right was a little tricky. I tried to use parts that conveyed a sense of speed even while sitting still.

This would be cool if a pull-back motor could be incorporated into it. Then there could be an entire racing league of racing bugs. Snails, centipedes, spiders, ants etc. 

Obviously, there has been some mechanical bits attached to the shell, so it can be tracked around the circuit, but nothing that would actually hurt it.
