my car is made of carbon fiber, and has cd wheels
it goes really straight for the first like, 10 meters, but then swerves to the left
the wheels are on straight, and i'm pretty sure it's not human error.
what now?
i think we've talked about this before...
but anyways is it at 10 meters that it all of a sudden swevers to the left? or is it that its going left little by little but then at 10 meters its obvious that its to the left?

Make sure the sides of the cart are parallel. And, like robotman said, make sure the axle doesn't move.

If you are building a new scrambler or need to tweak one look at the Scrambla video on youtube for ideas.

Some very useful animations for those who just can't picture it. Why did you make the frames jump around and put in random noise though? I also noticed that our scambler from last year was in your video, and even though it shows no useful information about what was unique in the design, it might have been nice if you at least asked if it was ok to photograph and display someone elses work. No big deal so ya don't need to get defensive or anything. That was a lot of work to put that all together and I am sure it will be very useful to many people. Thanks.

The requirement to get permission before displaying photographs taken in a public place is a common misconception. It is my understanding that anyone can take photos of anything or anyone in a public place and display them anywhere. There is no requirement (either moral or legal) to ask or receive permission. By displaying your device in a public place, you are granting implied permission. The only time permission is necessary is if the photos are used for commercial purposed.

Since the photo was of someone else's device and the appearance of your device in the photo was incidental, they could even use the photo for commercial purposes without permission. By your own statement the photo "shows no useful information about what was unique in the design".

Note: This applies to photos THEY have taken. Before displaying photos taken by someone else, they would need to first get permission from the person who took the photograph.
