7th place is pretty good! And 2nd overall is amazing! Are you going to nats, or does your state only send 1 team?

yep u cant get another egg we and another team appealed because we saw 4 teams in the 15 minutes within our run break their egg before they ran-we thought mabye the eggs weakend over the day--it didnt work thoughFuzzy Mint wrote:nah, our state only sends 1 team.
woah, your state tournament has over 38 teams??? we only have 20 or something...thats too bad though that your egg broke when you taped it on. is it against the rules to get another egg before your runs or something?
well you should already be able to get full 12 metersChrisYim wrote:Oh, and I have one other question. Does the weight of the Scrambler vehicle effect how far it goes? I mean, I know it can stop easier but can it go farther than lighter vehicles? (I'm using a Push-Rod Launcher System)
we know its been discused--i would still think that people would just automatically test on a gym floor though for me when i think of the event and where it might be held the first thing that pops into my head is "gym".ktownpa7 wrote:a suggestion for anyone who is interested is that you might want to try testing on different floor surfaces.
when testing before regionals on a tile florr i was getting consistant of up to 5 cm of. When i got to regionals and launched on the gym, laminated wood planks, it slammed into the wall. i had the brakes calibrated exactly how they were for testing.
