New Perpetual Motion?

#1
While playing around with the new blocks, I came up with this:






Whats weird is that when I start it up backwards or forwards, when I let go, it just slows down and goes backwards at an extremely slow pace. Sometimes it stops or goes really fast but most of the time, I found that it went on forever at an extremely slow pace. Also, very rarely (this is probably just a glitch) the braces seem to merge and switch spots so they are parallel and not crossing each other. Can anyone explain how this happens?

edit:

Turns out its not actually perpetual motion because when I tried out the same thing with no braces, the large wheel just kept on going slowly. Still a considerable glitch though.

There some magical forces at work in besiege lol. I found two different "perpetual motion" devices in the last couple days. One in my gear/spring catapult i posted and another in a planetary gear thing i made today. I don't mind if its not entirely realistic....i it just makes for a lot more possibilities

Just Unity, probably.
