    WTF
    how do you get 10 secs? The nuts are not even all in my cart until 7 secs
    how do you make the thing go faster?
    my best time is 1:20

    What's your cart look like? The opening might be too small for the coconuts to pile in. I just hit the release button then mash the right arrow key til it hits the end.

    10 secs is nuts, you can barely make 10 secs with just one wheel, let alone a cart

    umm 10 ses is impossible
    Just using one big wheel and taking off as soon as the nuts are released the best i can do is 18secs.

    does not make and sense

    I can get 10 secs with just a wheel, you're spending too much time airborne
