Mecano Challenge s03e05
Titre original : Missile Launcher
This time, a team called Filth goes up against the winner of Demolition (Chaos Crew or Beach Boys) to design and build a machine that can throw a rugby football as far as possible using only their own muscle power, so no motors allowed. They have to create something that can store muscle power gradually, then release it in a controlled burst. Filth decides to ignore their expert and creates a huge cross-bow-type machine. The other team decides to pump up an air cannon to shoot the ball. And while the winner can't be revealed, one team captain manages to throw his rugby ball farther than his machine could.
