Haha! Funny, but it doesn't stay in the goal.

Crap. Forgot the contest.

The thread's definition of perfection is debatable. Here's a solution that I like for Bonus 9:

But if you want minimum pieces, here's Bonus 9 in six:

Which fits the purpose of this thread, but doesn't really match my idea of "perfection". We have to wait for the FC to stabilize and then we go to the judges for a ruling on what is "in" and what is on the boundaries. Using the game as our judge, here is an illustration of "IN" (zoom in on the target in the construction zone).

I think that's cheating a little by using the 5 parts that are already on there.

This is a clean 4 part solution:

Junkyard in 5.

The drive wheels wedge after a couple of minutes and it looks stable.

For this, two contraints:
1. the solution shall use the fewest number of pieces,
2. the victory piece shall stay (eternally) in the goal area but not on borders.



It doesn't stay in the goal area, so it doesn't count.

A possible solution to 'Bonus 02' in 3 pieces.

I've watched the end-state for a while and believe the object stays within the goal area at all times, even though it's still moving. Does this meet the requirements?

It's a fluke, but it meets all requirements.

Tube in 5 pieces!
