Lunar Madness, Space Walk, its a Race?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
OK give me pure raw hell if this one has been suggested before, I'm bracing myself.
The Challenge? To build a machine to carry all four contestants in a race, but you can't use wheels or track! Make the course so that a hover craft will be ruled out (a row of rocks should do it).
Will it have to end up being something with feet? Feets get me out of here...LL

Already done... I think they called it "Walking Machines" or something similar. It was a great show.

You could combine this with the often suggested "tractor pull" idea...

They have built "walking" machines, but they haven't had a walking machine tug-of-war. Just a thought.
