  1. I think you ought to have a stuffed soft toy beaver sticking up out of the hole in the front, tank commander style

  3. But heavy is good with a soapbox, added momentum can mean more speed.

  6. Weight is good once you have momentum, however it makes generating that momentum harder

    I only stopped peeling glue because i was chuckling at Illegitimate child file

  15. I'm not seeing the Pink Fluffy Dice. :(
     
  16. The paint it still wet, the dice are in my van ready to go on when it's all done, don't want to get them all poobus
     
  17. Who wouldn't chuckle at an illegitimate child file?
     
  18. Those that dont have there arms covered in pva
     
  19. Very true of course, that's where you need a couple of the biggest, strongest pushers at the top. The faster you can start accelerating the faster you will be going at the bottom.

Did you see the Guy Martin programme a while ago, he did something similar and kept adding bottles of water as ballast. The more he piled in, the faster he ended up going.*





    *Until he had a huge crash, but we'll not worry about such details;)
