Re: Ackerman Steering

there isnt a fixed axle in ackermann connected to the wheels iirc Then where do I put my threaded rod? The other axle contains the wrapped string attached to the mousetrap. You might just have to make the threaded rod the pull axle, then? The wingnut doesn't really move that much if you have a thin...

Re: Triggering the traps

Usually in my experience it's better to only activate one, having the arms attached together and only one set. Since there's no possible way that you can set off both at the same time, what can potentially happen is that one mousetrap gets set off before the other, the sudden jolt as the slack is ta...

Re: Wish People Happy Birthday Here!

Happy birthday to A Person
Thank you! Decided to drop in again and I'm very pleased to see that you mentioned that.

It's also cool to see other people I recognized being turning a year older, like iwonder and syo_astro.

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Y'all, this is gonna sound weird, but here goes: So I used this site a long time ago, and I was very immature on here. I used anonymity as an excuse to be rude. I know that most of the people that used this site when I did probably aren't on here anymore, but if you were and I offended you in any w...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

I spent 5 hours reviewing division B applications last night and I'm no longer alive. As expected, EVERYONE wanted to do hovercraft. There wasn't a single student out of 109 applications who didn't put hovercraft in their top ten. The second most popular event was a tie between rocks and optics. Fi...

Like Cheesy Pie, I've also not been on in months. Anything I miss, other than the predictions?

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Does anyone have the scores for air trajectory at nats? I got 0cm on the close 5.2 cm on the far and landed both bucket shots, but also got a 100 point penalty. I just want to see where I would have placed if we didn't get that penalty. I know this might be bitter news for you, but I think you shou...

Re: Who's Going to Nationals 2016?

Haha, join the 50s club, my friend! My team finished 52nd last year ( I think West Virginia invited us to some dorm party or something...). The sad thing is that we've won pretty much every year but have drastic changes in placement each year. 2013 - 52nd 2014 - 43rd 2015 - 52nd :( I wish you luck!...

Re: Motor Breaking HELP

Braking with both axles should help because there will be more contact with the floor thus the coefficient of friction should be increased No thats not why. The coefficient of friction depends only on the material, not contact area. But friction force is friction coefficient times normal force so y...
