Fun fact: The test packet CD comes with pictures of everyone's buggy from nationals! They're copyrighted, so I can't post them here. But I noticed some things that most of the top buggies had in common.

  • A pretty big motor
  • Gears
  • Wingnut braking
  • Neatness and cleanliness (Except South MS, that buggy looked like spaghetti!)

Also, Marie Murphy, is that a knife? Looks dangerous...

Oh wait, I'm sorry, not Marie Murphy. I was talking about team #1, and I looked on the BB list and Marie Murphy was at the top (because they won) so I thought they were #1 by accident. Marie had a really good idea for keeping the buggy aligned, by the way. Team #1 was Lakeshore.

Depends on how you design your buggy I believe there is some good discussion and examples of motors in last years thread

It depends on your gearing really.
You could get the fastest possible motor but if you gear it wrong it would mean nothing.
I used sommat along these lines
