Yeah, otherwise some schools get to good at it and other schools don't get a chance, it makes things interesting. Anyway thanks for posting those, it will make my life a lot easier this summer when I build a prototype.

that's a good point because you could just reuse the building event structures
it would make the competitions a ot less interesting

Wow, I found a possible battery buggy. I found it at a nearby store, It fits all the requirments. The problem is no breaks. Hopefully it can be modifed to work well. Heres an online link if you want to order it. I'll tell you how well it works when I finish building it.

If that works well for you and it fights the requirements, I'll definitely consider buying it. It seems like it would be able to adjust a couple of things here and there.

I built it, works great, just need to figure out the breaking system. Luckly I have a lot of time to do my research. Any suggestions on the breaking system?
