Re: Machines B/C

I'm curious how device scores are looking, especially at the upper end. I'd expect around 38-42 out of 45 to be leading scores nationally.

Re: 40 cm x 40 cm size limit on the mousetrap vehicle

I got the standard mouse trap vehicle kit from Sci Oly website. Excluding the lever arm, it does not fit within the 40 cm x 40 cm square, even if I align the vehicle diagonally in the square. Is it sufficient for the vehicle's wheel bases to fit within the 40 cm x 40 cm square? Thanks According to ...

Re: Indiana 2020

I have never competed in this event before so are there any super important things I need to read up on or study that come up often in this event?
