Woah..THAT FAST! AND THAT SMALL OF A SCORE! The highest I've ever gotten was probably -7...without messing up anything at all..(But my partner and I usually ALWAYS mess up SOMETHING)
yeah, same here. We screw up all the time... and that happened at nationals unfortunately. The bolt in our breaking system went loose and we only noticed before the second run but we didnt have time to fix it. The vehicle still stopped, but the calibration shifted with the bolt so the second run was like 20 cm off (the first was like 30...)
But still...1 second???? We thought our car was really fast and it's best was 1.6 seconds...But I know how you feel about your car, as our car failed at every competition before Nationals when it had been running fairly well before each competition. If your best was -10 to -15 that would certainly get top 3 at Nats. The problem with all the builds is that they are all luck, basically. The best car could have a bad day and the worst car could go straight for the first time ever....Ah well. Its not a good measurement of what the best car was. I feel ya about your car.
