A link from there took me to another site about the winner of that competition:

That site had a nice video presentation about their winning car and how they made it:
It's pretty interesting stuff. Hope you enjoy it!

At first I thought the slingshot car might have used some power source other than gravity, but after watching the video it appeared to be 100% powered by potential energy. Ingenious!

I love the concept of "moving parts allowed"...
There is a LOT you can do with that freedom.
We were total lega-beagles when we were in Scouts... in a handful of years more, my son will be ready to really get into the "real world"... this would be a tremendous venue for seeing what we can really do.
