I read the "Sailing Ship" puzzle and it made me think of another one I heard a while ago.

A man decides to drive from LA to NY. The trip is 2500 miles, which takes 3 days and a lot of stops. Which part of the car travels the farthest?

(and ignore any rotational factors like tires or engine pistons - it's just the one part of the car the actually goes the farthest from start to finish)

good guess with antenna, but incorrect.

on a shorter trip, that would probably be correct, but on a long one, not so much (there's my only hint for this one) ;)

Another good guess, especially based on the information provided. The hint was meant to guide you in the direction that stops must be made during a long trip.

Points to Noct for correct answer! Good guesses to everyone else, though.
