Default what is a good program for drawing plans?

i dont have a drafting table, or the right tools for drawing up good chassis plans. i have been using pencil and printer paper with pretty good luck, but i want something a little more accurate. something that i could fix the wheelbase and figure out the link lengths and chassis shape and such, along with mounting holes. im tired of using a compass and drawing everything out 1:1 and screwing up by a few MM and having a lopsided crawler.

where is a good place to look, or what is a good program that will do what im wanting?

If you want free go to www.emachineshop.com

Not the friendliest software, it can be limited at times, and mine freezes from time to time, but for free CAD its well worth it.

I really like the Number 2 pencil and a piece of paper program.

Yep, the program name is "crayons and a coloring book".
