My "Handling" Fantastic Contraption

I just love the trial and error that goes into making these contraptions.

My latest... "Stand Tall" is a solution for the "Handling" scenario.

Very nice... My solution (which I didn't save :( ) was to build a cart carrying the red piece with the RP swivelling around its center to get under the block, and then having a 2nd card pulling the other way on a long tether so the first cart stopped in the goal zone.

Your solution is much more direct, I like it!

Here's my solution... surprisingly simple. Looking at this one, I thought it would take me forever to figure something out. In the end, I think I spent 2 minutes.
