Build your vehicle without movement, and then take turns minus build phase to race. I think everyone would have to gain dice between turns by removing part of their vehicle if they wanted, or discard saved cards. With some work, this might work...but not sure if it would be as fun.

Maybe something like Galaxy trucker? Maybe remove the burst cards, put the rest of the cards in the middle, face down. Have some time limit. Everyone flips cards with one hand, can only add parts to their machine that makes a valve connection back to cockpit, can rearrange at anytime. After time limit, it's race time where parts can be discarded to get either cogs or dice, and see who gets the farthest in one "round". It would all be about building these monster inventions, trying to form some combos, and then seeing who gets the farthest as they race. Parts can be discarded for the discard value (maybe if the don't have dice on them, or maybe it doesn't matter), but then they can't be used to deal with damage later on, or during if you get to -8. It becomes a very different game, but might kind of be fun.
