Tug of War (I lied, I had one more)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Show the contestants a cable with two hooks, and a ribbon tied in the center. They must design a vehicle which will pull against their opponents' vehicle, hooked by this cable, in a tug-of-war. Now not only horsepower, but grippy tires... or maybe some other type of "wheels"... become very important. Now I'm done (I hope). Rich.

It's been done.

How often does this guy watch the show?! Done to death! Perhaps a stationary Puller. No wheels to pull it. Just a hydraulic arm or something more creative than I care to think about. Cool, huh?

I suppose some people sit and watch T.V. for their ideas, and others actually use their head. Look at the positive side... I came up with an idea which was worthy of a T.V. episode, without having seen it.
