83% after 10 minutes. My design seems alright, just need more coordination getting it to the other end of the track quickly. There is some timing involved in doing the jumps right.

I have physics homework to do, this is distracting me lol.

very similar to mine. Low C.o.G, long wheel base. I like what you did to hold the cocounts in there.

I delivered all of the coconuts on the first try, but only got 85%. How do you get 100%? Just go faster?

the secret is to have lots of suspension travel (maybe also another drive wheel on the front so that while your nose plows into the ground your still pulling yourself along) and to get the coconuts into the vehicle as fast as possible

well the main problem with that cart is that the back flap gets caught up on the coconut chute, which slows you down about 1 second at the start. After that everything is full throttle to the saw blades

koto it could be your internet connect, I'm playing from the school right now and everything seems to be in slow motion, except for the timer.
