I have a question about the aiming device. This is from the S.O. Manual: "Sighting and/or aiming devices placed on the track are permitted but must be removed before the vehicle begins its run. Aligning and sighting devices mounted on the vehicle may be removed at the team’s discretion prior to each run." What are some good aiming devices that you have tried? What works and what does not? Any help would be highly appreciated. We are having difficulties trying to get the vehicle as straight as possible. Thanks!
National Placements:
2015:
ELG-1

2016:
ELG-3
Bridge-3

2018
Heli-5
Mousetrap-5
Towers-6

I don't use an aiming device, just my eyes and hundreds of runs. It works just fine.

I just bought a 5$ sniper scope for airsoft guns on amazon and glued it onto a block of wood, which i attached to a ruler, and i made that ruler align with the vehicles 2 contact poiunts. I made the sight aim to a block of wood i put on the track. Also, just cuz im wonderin, has anyone seen any vehicles faster than 1.5 secs? (please disregard any vehicles that were wayyyy off the line)

Obviously you have to get negative scores to place....Surprisingly, my partner and I managed to get a placing with a -7 or -8...
