Re: Gravity Vehicle 20-21

Probably too radical of a change to current rules and vehicles, although ramps would be ok IMO. I guess on every situation in depends, regarding on whether or not you have ever made such a vehicle or not, since if you've not done it; it looks tricky but once you understand the tricks it can also be...

Re: Gravity Vehicle 20-21

As many teams have extra time (no winding mousetraps, no setting up a launcher, no batteries) it would be interesting to have more than 1 target points - perhaps three. Teams would be given the same time (8 minutes) to complete 3 runs. The distances can be chosen between 9m-12m vertically, but in a...

Re: Incoming NorCal State & Santa Clara Regionals Cancellation?

With the cancellation of the SoCal State Tournament, does anyone think COVID-19 could also affect NorCal State or the last NorCal Regionals tournament, Santa Clara? I think these two tournaments are increasingly likely to be cancelled. I think that NorCal should’ve been canceled, since their outbre...

The World Health Organization mission to China found that 78% of the cases reported as of Feb. 20 were in people ages 30 to 69. Data sugg...

Re: Mousetrap vehicle too heavy?

Hello, I have constructed my mousetrap vehicle but whenever I try to trigger it, it won't budge. I think it may be too heavy for the mousetrap to handle. It weighs approximately one pound, is that too much? The body is entirely 3D printed and fairly large. so I think that may be an issue. Yes, way ...

Re: Scores

I feel like long distances are easier since there is less skid with less speed. I’m assuming the cars that placed at ggso go near perfectly straight, canceling out that issue. However, for our shorter distances there is more skid than there would be for further distances. Idk what I did but i used ...
