Re: Politics

I think one thing a lot of people miss in the discussion over gun violence is the perceptual impact of gun control legislation. Sure, well-designed gun control policy, including measures likes UBCs, closing the boyfriend loophole, and expanding CDC research, would save many lives, but it has to be p...

Re: Water Quality B/C

Will water quality ID remain the same for marine/estuarine next year?
No, I believe it will change. Check the wiki for a rough estimate of the marine list.

Re: Water Quality B/C

What did you guys get for the salinity at nats?
I guessed 2.9
For Div. C I think the values were about 2.2% and 5.0% for beaker A and B, respectively.

Re: State Distances

Texas was 3.5. I don't know if it helps because all state competitions are over, but it's there for those curious.

Re: Car curves on the way back

I find that having a front drive axle helps avoid this problem. The front cannot lift upon reversal due to the weight of the mousetraps and the entire back of the chassis holding it down to counteract this. This is the main reason why I switched from back to front wheel drive. Increasing traction c...

Probably should have said "Traction Treads" like what they have here: https://www.docfizzix.com/products/parts-supplies/supp310df.shtml...

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

Has anyone experimented with docfizzix cd tires? If so, how well do they work? Is it worth getting them instead of balloon tires or 3d printed tires? According to Doc Fizzix, his DVD layers are half the thickness of regular CDs, thus reducing rotational inertia, so there might be some advantage ove...
