I'm pretty sure it's not a pure build (I guess in theory it could be since I don't have the actual rules). I do recall MagLev and Sounds being in the build section similarly. Both of course still had tests. I guess the mods (or maybe just robotman) just decided to put it here. It doesn't really matter that much. There's multiple half-build/half-studies, so I guess it's just how you interpret things.

I wonder if/when the soinc.org link to the mp3 sounds will be fixed.

For Time Trial #5, the rules say that the time interval will be any of the above (referring to time trials 1-4). Under "Competition," the rules state that: "Teams must not be informed of the selected intervals."

Will we be told of the interval range for Time Trial 5, like 10 to 30 seconds, or do the rules mean that the interval can be anything between 10 seconds and 300 seconds?

Also will the time trials be in the order on the rules, like "Time Trial 1" always be between 10 and 30 seconds, or can event supervisors mix up the order of the time intervals? (Say the first trial was between 30 seconds to 90 seconds)

Thanks

Someone official may respond to this, but in advance I want to tell you that you should submit an official clarification if you want to actually sure (as anything on this site is just discussion, which can be useful, but not be exact clarifications).

You most likely won't be informed of the interval range for Trial 5. You need to be prepared for anything between 10 and 300 sec.
4.a. explicitly says that the trials must be run in the order listed.

FYI, until the link is updated, you can get the MP3 files here:
