The problem is there's multiple groups of turnip-makers, and some of  
them want things that can't be made and don't want to listen to  
anyone who's trying to tell them that, and others don't want anyone  
to have anything but the rocket-powered unrestricted sports-cart even  
if they happen to think stop signs and speed bumps are kinda useful.

So there's a lot of folks going "hey, you know, if we take this cart  
we already have, you can kind of make it work...".
