How about a ultralight airplane ? it could be done in 10 hours ! check out www.affordaplane.com, basic ultralight, also www.vulga.com has early plane jane ultralights. (examples of the simple ones)

build a wave runner or jet ski or wetbike.

snowmibile, be interesting to see what it looks like.

the liability of flying an ultralight built out of junk in ten hours would be astronomical. what if someone crashed and died? One plane came apart, this is when they had to drop some bombs on a windy day in England. This plane wasn't even manned.

the submarine is a cool idea, I had it above and didn't read yours. but then again there is the sam liability issue.

It was amazing that they had the drag racers end up going over 80 MPH, that was really amazing to me. and freightening.

jet ski is very interesting, they had the hydroplane and one guy nearly got injuried on it when it turned sideways, then dug in and blew the seal, but the two hydroplanes which were built were amazing.

Think they should something with hydroplanes in the future, perhaps keep it over water the next time, have a hydroplane demolition derby

We built submarines already. It was the first show involving an american team. Read about ours at my design notes

I think you have to look at the extreme games, I think that they are far more dangerous.

I have only watched a few shows now, at this show catches on they will get more funding, as you know they add things or take away from the junk yard, to either make it harder or to help them to accomplish there goal. As in any show, the more episodes you make the harder it is to come up with ideas.
