Loop the loop?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Would anyone have thought of a mobile "thing" to go around a loop the loop in the shortest time? Of course, it could'nt be manned by anyone and it would have to be a certain size. Pretty good idea for a 12 year old, wouldnt ya say?

Hi Jared, Duane here...Team Captain for "Art Attack" ( we'll be on Junkyard at 10pm tonight.) You must have a hot wheels set. I use to set one up in my house when I was a kid to see how far I could get it to go on just gravity. That's a good idea! Each team could have a certain weight that they had to build the machine under. Then let the machine roll down a course toward a loop de loop. Kind of like unmanned pine box derby but bigger.
