Um, you might have got it wrong, you hit hit vertically, you can't hit it horizontally.

Is it true that Mousetrap's gonna switch out to Gravity Vehicle next year? I heard from my friend.

I really don't want Mousetrap vehicle to change. It's a fun event, but I have to admit, Gravity Vehicle also sounds really cool. But yeah, I got .... 3rd? 4th? I forgot at State. It was really fun, but our car veered off. Which sucked.
