Hey Everyone!

It's weekly challenge time again. This week is the Dune Buggy challenge.

Head into the Checkpoint Challenge > Terra Firma and build your best Dune Buggy vehicles.

The aim of this challenge is to get the biggest air that you can off the top of the hills in the new Mountains of Doom checkpoint track. We will measure how much hight you can gain when going off the top of these jumps. The winner is the one that can get highest.

This track will be available in the first beta build (currently estimated for this Thursday), until then you can still start building your Dune Buggies in the Terra Firma track.

A few rules:
- No input whilst in the air. We will turn off controls whilst airborne for this challenge, to stop people from flying into the sky forever.
- As such, no wings allowed. You can use the mini-wing (I suppose) but we'd prefer you didn't. This challenge is all about gaining big air off jumps in a ground based vehicle.

A tip:
- Build vehicles that are fast, light and powerful. It is important that it can get up hills at a good speed.

Here is the video where I explain the challenge and demo it a little:

Hurray for loopholes. My first five attempts to make buggies couldn't get to much airtime so I played around with the parts. I wanted to make a visually pleaseing one, but then I discovered that fans are awesome. Sorry I missed it, I was on a little island without internett for two days.

yeah man you did well to push the limits of the challenge. I can't wait to see how you'll do it again!
