Very special thanks for helping as usual.
Advice and help with JBEAM stuff
I present my first jbeam project, a weight transfer machine.
Tow hitch so you can tow multiple sleds.
If you have know idea what I am talking about, watch the first 4 minutes of this video:
If you skip to 2:05 in this next video you can see me demonstrate it to the chat on one of my recent streams (features an older version of the model):
You can hook a tow hitch of a car to the chain at the front (of which is made from the giant flail prop, thanks BeamNG), it is programed to be ready as soon as it is spawned. All you need to do is pull it and the weight will start moving along to the front to increase the resistance. It moves by the distance it is pulled so every time the weight should get to the same place by the same distance. Once the weight is reset and back at the rear, it will be ready to pull again. The weight can be adjusted in the Tuning menu. Once the weight has gotten to a certian point, that is also set in the tuning menu, there are springs that start pushing down on the back of the pan.
Reset weight: G

The jbeam is indestructable so please don't be disapointed that you cannot damage it. It is purely for experimental purposes, I thought others might want to have a look.
Let me know if you have any input on this.
Experimental Prototype Pulling Sled 1.2.3
A prop that simulates a tractor pull sled.
