Re: Guess The Scioly Member!

zyzzyva980 is correct! your turn. And in response to azuritemalachite, the word curculionoidea isn't a spelling error. Its actually the name of the superfamily ;) I was referring to the misuse of your instead of you're Yeah I know. I noticed that when It was too late. I'm sorry. I actually mean't t...

Re: Guess The Scioly Member!

All right! Two guesses are in:
Fulgorid_weevil?
zyzzya.
I wonder if one is right yet.
Neither one is correct. By the way there's no such thing as a zyzzya

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Ok so I'm trying a piston design. It's pretty simple - I have a 4 inch PVC pipe which connects to a thin plastic tube which connects to the barrel where the ball is launched from. My piston is a 3 inch PVC pipe with 2 caps on the ends which are just the right size so when I put my piston PVC in the...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I got a package that comes with plastic and HDPE golf balls combined. the package reads "Practice Plastic/HDPE golf balls" . My only concern is that some opponent will argue that the word plastic is referring to the plastic balls and not the HDPE ones. But The rules clarifications do say that as lon...

Re: Wheeled Vehicle B

Are you able to use a mouse trap, because the rules state non-metalic?
If the mousetrap is made out of any metal then no because non-metallic means something that lacks metallic attributes.

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Has anyone had much luck with the racquetballs and practice golf balls? I've almost entirely seen people using ping pong balls, but they have a really poor flight pattern and tend to curve in the air. Practice golf balls don't fit well in any of the pvc tubes I've tested them with, anyone have luck...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Is using a Laser as part of your tool kit for setting up the device before launch is within the rules? Do you guys think laser pointers are legal to use for aiming as long as they don't pose any threat to the eyes? They aren't explicitly prohibited by the rules, so as long as you follow General Rul...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

Regarding the inclusion of the weight of the piston in the total weight that falls: We have the weight dropping most of the distance, down a 4" PVC pipe, onto a fairly light piston which is positioned 6" above the bottom. A small rubber strap easily holds the piston up, and returns it to its former...
