Kite Powered Cart or Car : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I don't know if this idea has been posted or not but here goes. Maybe get your teams to build a kite powered cart or buggy that would be capable of carrying either one team member or all four team members over a course. First team across the finish line wins. This would allow the teams to tackle this challenge in their own way as far as the type of kite(s) used and cart constuction. The carts and kites would of course have to be steerable with a braking device on the cart. This idea could be used either in the old country or over here and as this sport is already being done, finding experts on either side of the pond should be no problem. Thanks for listening.
