That isn't a champ. A champ is when the goal piece stops in the goal area forever.

One wooden rod, yes, but not one water rod.

It's not a champion - I thought it would be dumb to include that... but I guess I'll add it if you want me to...

Mars in 2

Nice!

And it is possible to do mars in one with brown, but only because it rolls down it. I dunno about one water, that'd be a stretch...

Nice! and it's a champion too :) 93 pieces xD (I'm sure we can get that down somehow lol)

Very cool as well. I knew it could be done, but didn't feel like tweaking it :xd:

Junkyard looks really hard... you'll need the whole contraption to be launched somehow, either that or something that unfolds and can reach the entire way... either way, the wall may be an easier next challenge.

I'm only claiming partial credit for this.

For Handling, this popped up in another thread: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=716181. I hacked it around a bit, including deleting that brown rod, and got it down to: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1445514 which is a 16 water rod champion, if slightly less elegant than the original.

Unfortunately I couldn't find out who made the starting design.

It looks like Orange Peel's http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=136765, but yours is quite elegant. Very smooth.

very nice! I'll put you down for credit, since you got it the first with all water rods ;)

and I just found out that the u-turn isn't a champion :(

it appears that the rest are too hard to attempt and so this challenge has died :P

Handling, 8 piece champion:

It was based on my 6 piece brown champion:

This can be fixed either by removing weight off the left or adding a blocker on the right,
but it's such a wonderful piece of engineering that I'll leave it to whocares to fix it.
