    Bastien from Munich sent me this wonderful picture... an installation at the Mini factory, obviously!<br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7mBH1-140JU/UJEMputRMVI/AAAAAAAACQI/ltiysObKy_U/s1600/Mini+slingshot.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7mBH1-140JU/UJEMputRMVI/AAAAAAAACQI/ltiysObKy_U/s400/Mini+slingshot.jpg" style="width: 400;height: 300" border="0"></a></div>
    <br><br><br><br><br>While the draw is very limited, the idea alone is cool... hmmm.... with a longer ramp and really, really strong bands... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">))

    Joerg, you have to get rid of that smashed car somehow, why not shoot it into your neighbor's pool. <br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br>Brian<br>

  10. That thing is crazy awesome, I saw a helicopter drop a car at an airshow once, seeing a slingshot shoot a car would be so much cooler.

    I think it´s possible too.<br>Build out the engine (less weight= less Theraband)<br>I bet, Jörg´s brain is in highly activity.<br>At the first time i saw a video from Jörg, i thought,wow how many Theraband he has.<br>It must be enough for years.<br>Now i know it better.
