You can build one without chain. Go look at IAC's. He did it. Why cant you make something like that?

I think 4.  Round 3 should have 6 people moving on, round 4 has 3 people moving on, and the end of round 4 is what determines the winner.

All you need to make is a LIFT, you don't have to make a full ball machine.

for the ball
     -use a golfball
     -wallball
     -tennisball
For the lift
     - drill
     -a crank
     -an old rc car motor

There are many backup things you can use so please try to build it using something alternative
