my favorite mechanics problem

Students in a high school class were playing with ramps and pulleys and carts and had to design a modified Atwood's machine. One group created the setup in the attached image. Depending on the position of the pulley, the mass of the cart and counter weight and the angle of the track the resulting motion is periodic. I would like to challenge anyone who reads this note to turn this simple setup into a problem for Brilliant's mechanics section.
