it took a lot of tweaking to get it to stay in the goal perfectly
Also, I came up with an idea on how to solve Four Balls with water rods only; use the two right balls to carry (or throw) the two left balls into the goal. I made a quick and dirty proof of concept contraption that uses two balls to carry the other two (with a water rod connecting them to each other). Link. So it is possible, but it's going to be hard as hell to make it work.
This contraption shows what I'm talking about a little better.

It is possible [prototype], but it's hard as hell to pull off, which is why no one's done it yet. The only reason the protype doesn't currently work is because the "basket" is rolling, making the front wheel push the top right wheel off of the basket itself (plus there's powered wheels and wooden rods, but that's not my point). The basket has to be some sort of slingshot for it to work.
