I just started trying to do it. I have a couple of ideas. I'm pretty sure that it's possible. If I do it I'll post my solution.

The machine will struggle first but only for about 30 seconds, then it would push the little cart up and over the cliff

Woohoo... I have finally solved... THE TUBE!
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=261435

It uses gravity to help it keep itself wedged between the green walls.

I've also found that the chain can break and/or go through the green if there's enough weight.

I'm still having a ton of trouble trying to win the Unpossible level... I built a catapult, but not sure how to get it to swing around correctly... *brainstorms*...

That previous entry of mine definitely seems like a fluke. It only works 1 out of about every 5 or 6 times.

@Ainegue: I know that the level itself is solvable, but at the bottom of Page 1 of comments here, the user Pokey poses a challenge that I think is pretty impossible, or very darn near it:

POKEY'S TUBE CHALLENGE
----------------------

Having fun creating ingenious fantastic contraptions? Why not test your skills on Pokey's Tube Challenge!?

Here's the challenge: Complete the "Tube" stage by bringing the red ball around the outside of the tube. Your contraption can do whatever it needs to do, but the red ball must travel out the bottom of the tube, up around the side and back down through the top of the tube.

Who ever can do this gets an e-high five!
