We built an human powered panzer kampwagen III tank in 11 days. This was intended to crash the party at the 2nd annual Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby (we crashed the 1st annual with a pirate ship), but by the time we arrived, we were all too exhausted to do much party crashing.

  1. Yup. It’s actually a CB350 engine that my housemate had kicking around.

    The differential was also free. One of the team pulled it from a Ford 8.8″ rear he has slated for some kind of excessive locker and subsequent placement under some kind of excessive jeep.
