I dont think Junkward vehicles and highspeeds are a good mix if your trying to keep a good level of safty, maby constructing a offroad vehicle for a romp around a narly road would be run, i think the catapult idea is exellent.

Your suggestions all seem to be solutions rather than problems, and all the problems they solve have already been done--although some of them haven't aired yet.

They've already done a water-pumping problem, a wall-destruction problem, a throwing-for-distance problem, and a high-speed race problem (a couple of different ways!)--all in season 3. See for yourself:

they need to build machines capable of doing a destruction derby.

make a flying machine that can lanch off water and carry at least one member of the team maybe carry all of them and also land but it must lanch off a engine.

How about a machine that can lift the most weight a/o stack heavy stuff in an alotted time?

maybe a parachute that maybe a 5,000 lb weight can use to hit the ground with less than a given amount of force. the problems would be size of the parachute, shape, the cables used, a way to remotly open the parachute and strenth of the material. maybe you cant have it drop to slow either it has to touch the ground in a certain amount of time, or it has to stay in the air for more than a minute or some crap. something using a parachute.

How about having them build a hovercraft?
