In this work we propose a motor molecular that uses a carbon wire like two bounded three-pronged pitchforks using as a small nanotube as a probe. The internal probe is relaxing between them. The initial position of the probe is out of symmetry that was the way of the probe to start in the system movement due to van der Waals force acting in them. The simulation was done by classic molecular dynamics with standard parameterization. We also calculated temporal thermodynamics approach properties of this device as molar specific heat (0.107 kcal/mol °K) and variation of entropy (0.12 kcal/mol °K). In our calculations this system has 100 carbon atoms with up to almost 5 ns of simulation. These facts can be useful for the constructions of new molecular machines.
