I'm definitely going to do this next year. I liked scrambler. Battery Buggy will be a little nicer though because you don't have to worry about breaking the egg. That's one less variable to worry about.

And you don't have to build a launcher, my launcher last year had major problems. At least this is good now. Anyone on here old enough to tell us what the event was like? This seems like a cross between robo-cross and scrambler to me. Sounds good.

hey you guys... most of your questions in this area are probably going to be answered in the EV section C part of building events in this forum..

ask there...
the highschoolers are more experienced, they know the event better, and they can answer your questions!

1) battery buggy and EV aren't really similar, so their questions probably won't be answered in that thread, you can program EV, you can't program battery buggy

2) high schoolers are not necessarily more experienced, and many have probably not done this event before, and its not guaranteed that a high schooler can answer questions better than a middle schooler, especially when its a middle school event

3) don't make assumptions...everyone knows what that does

It seems that this event is indeed very similar to EV...essentially EV without the use of electronics.

A lot of EV's have been built this way, and there are a lot of similar concepts. It also seems similar to Scrambler in many ways.

i recommend a motor turning a threaded axle and wingnut braking system... however the wingnut eventually hits a break depending on its position on the rod

i have a good one build already a few of the parts are from a wheeled vehicle so it is good to keep all devices most of the time you can reuse them

I'm trying to find some old rules, anyone here have a coach who was around for this event, maybe they have an old handbook with the rules in it?
