Engineering

So think you would make a good engineer? well here is a little test of your skills, all you need to do is design and build a truck to move some coconuts down a track

I got annoyed with it when it decided my twin turbo V8 6X6 with scammel style walking beam rear axle and leading link front suspension was infact one wheel drive and wouldnt leave the start for excess wheel spin 0%
I am off to do some proper engineering now......machining landrover hubs to fit suzuki 2.7V6 grand vitara discs and Willwood dynalite calipers, so i can stop the thing! Its on drums at the moment

daft thing about it is if you make simple a box and stick some wheels on with a few shocks you can get 80%

93% Covered in roof of their truck and added a funnel to keep the 'nuts in and put a wheel on each corner so it could wheely.

Not much work will get done in the engineering dept tomorrow I fear once this gets out.

What a crap game

I built a couple of prototypes that worked well enough so spent about 30 mins of my life with the kids thinking and designing a monster mover (1.5 man and kid hrs build time) started the game and dropped the coconuts and half the coconuts dissapeared and the game took me to the shredder at the end. When I tried to edit my truck the design had gone

Perhaps it couldn't cope with 100%

I'm off to drive 6" nails though my toes now, much more rewarding
