Re: Action Transfers

If you have a pre-lit light that is covered by a plate, and then move that plate using a motor and let the light trigger a photoresistor circuit, would that count as E - M - VL - M, even though the mechanical movement isn't actually transferring its energy to the light?

Re: Scrambler C

Any tips on where to get wheels? Also, what were your run times looking like? servocity.com has some good ones that you can check out. All different sizes. Also I know this is highly unlikely but does anyone think it would be possible to have an electronically powered car as the scrambler sometime ...

Re: Pennsylvania 2014

Wow, congrats to Penncrest on their first State title! (but oh nooo, the 16 year streak is dead :[ ) Represent us well at Nationals with Harriton! Looking at the scores, seems like Harriton (and several other good teams) got screwed by ExpDes... which was apparently really weird anyway. I have a fe...

Re: Scrambler C

Has anyone had trouble with their car swerving to the side of the wingnut when the car breaks? How does one go about fixing this?

Re: Mission Possible C

Has anyone had any luck with chemiluminescent reactions (i.e. glowstick) to a photocell?

Re: Mission Possible C

Another question. Are we not allowed to use voltaic cells that produce less than 10V because we have to use commercially made batteries? If so, any chemical -> electrical transfer would not be allowed, which seems a little unfair. You might want to look closely at the wording of this faq: http://ww...

Re: Mission Possible C

If you were to take a match and light it as an action, could you count it as mechanical to thermal to chemical to thermal? Because by striking the match mechanically, you generate heat (thermal). That heat allows the phosphorus lining of the match to chemically combust (chemical), and making a flame...
