To simplify design rules changed - gearbox must be with fixed ratrios and manualy controlled.
No change of circles radius/density.

Gearbox size need to be limited.
Let's strict it to half of engine size (ex. 1x1 or 0.5x2 etc). :geek:

Scene.my.variables allowed? And for the gearbox (i didn't understand) it has to be of fixed ratios or we can make gears from 1:4 to 1:1?
I thought this wasn't the first contest of it's kind, but it'll be the first in which I'll take part! :D
edit, I didn't see the track xD

"Fixed" means not CVT like in my first version.

You could make any spawn engine with inside-spawn (no propultion).

I wonder, If i build a better engine for Kilinich's superman dragster, could I still enter it or does the whole car have to be built by me alone?

I did build an excellent engine, but I the car it was built for was junk so I might just install my engine in your car...

EDIT : Well never mind, because the dang thing's not letting me share my scene for some reason. It just says "you are not authorized to edit this scene" whenever I hit the share button.

Try uploading the scene on Algobox directly, sometimes the built-in algobox browser has issues.

go to your home folder, there should be a folder called Algodoo, either in that folder or inside a documents folder.
if not, let me know and I'll try boot on OSx on my PC and find the folder.

Okay, I cheated and mounted my OSx partition in Linux, for me it's in this folder from the root of the drive, not sure how you'd get there, but that is where the files will be: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Algodoo
