try building a mobile crane,not only one that would pick and place but also pick and carry,or one or the other .given an equal weight to be lifted by both teams,they would pick carry the load to a point,then be required to place the load a distance away.you could limit weight,width,and length of the vecihcle,but be generous,who wins,the team that can pick its load travel a short distance,and place it,as far as they can ,a without destroying there machine. or just make it simple give the teams three different weights,dont limit the machines to much,and let them destroy the machine trying to get it farther. given all this the machine must have a hoist line,and a live boom(one that goes up and down).i feel it would get very interesting.
