Yet another idea: Jumpergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
They've made walkers. They've made amphibians. They've even made subs and boats. Now make a jumper. A large vehicle that simply achieve the highest altitude by jumping, carrying all 4 contestants. The vehicle that gets the highest off the ground (as measured from the base of the vehicle) or is in the air for the longest amount of time (no chutes) wins.

Great way to kill the contestants.

Ya, its a good idea, but leave the people on the ground. Another twist might be to have it jump three time the most distance from the start, not just up, that would make jumping in a straight line as important as distance.

Hey Dan, you can allways get more contestants.
