Marble Machine: Patch + More Prices

Introduction: Marble Machine: Patch + More Prices

Hello everyone, 

As I explained before: I'm now a pro member and I have 14 patches left to send. I don't know what to do with them so I decided to hold a contest. If you want to enter here are the rules:
1:The assignment is to create a marble machine out of k'nex that can fit in a red rod box.
2: There's no piece limit
3: All kinds of K'nex pieces are allowed but you can't use anything but K'nex pieces.
4: It must be automatic (which means you'll have to build a lift)

Prizes:
1st place: Patch + lots of honor.
2nd place: Patch + nice comment from me =D
3rd place: Patch

You can enter until I say you can't enter anymore :-p.
I hope to get alot of participants. Creativity will be rewarded.

PS: I posted this as a slideshow because I know most people don't check forums and questions.

Good luck!

    Since, no one seems to be entering this, I'll go head and enter what I came up with.

    Its pretty much impossible to make a lift and exit track without going outside the red box.

    I would just like to say that this is IMPOSSIBLE to do in a red box. There's no way to fit an entrance lift and exit. Is it OK if you change it to 3 blue squares by 3 blue squares?

    Oh wait Coaster105 is in thiis? Well I should pretty much give up... JK :-P
