Re: Air Trajectory B/C

People asked for hints regarding my elegantly simple solution to the problem of mismatched ball/pipe sizes. Here are two hints: 1. The French 2. Rocket Propelled Grenades (I am not, however, implying that using rocket propelled grenades or French people in your device is either legal or safe in com...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I think it's kinda funny how people are stressing about getting a ball to fit precisely in the tube when there's an EXTREMELY simple solution to the problem. My device uses HDPU golf balls without the slightest issue, and I could use standard golf balls if I wanted to and still get maximum distance....

Re: MagLev C

yup, yup, just noticed that, another question I have however is regarding supervisors choosing the start and stop lines, the problem being that many tracks attract the vehicle near the ends of the track which throw of consistent calculations, something I can see as being a major issue in more sensit...

Re: MagLev C

As above I'm interested in leveling of the track, but in the opposite way. Is inclining my track via shimming in order to increase the time my vehicle takes down the track contrary to any current rules?

I don't know, Lake Central's engineering scores weren't fantastic, and those ones make a huge difference at IU Bloom.

Cracked one of the modular Lexan sheets supporting one of the motor units for my Mass-Score MagLev Vehicle last night so yes.

Our team seems to be very different from what i'm seeing here. Our head coach writes up a schedule for hour long periods with the coaches for the individual events. We have two of these periods a day, monday through thursday, and then a specifically engineering day on friday with weekend build-it da...
