Even so, how would you use it without a centerline?

Hey guys,

This is my first year doing the Electric Vehicle C. I'm somewhat familiar with the format of the event, but does anybody have any good recommendations on where exactly to get started in building this vehicle? Like are the any books or online resources out there that might be of aid?

Thanks.

This is the first year for all of us. Anyhow, I suggest going through the image gallery for Electric Vehicle as well as battery buggy for ideas.

Do batteries plugged into a microcontroller count toward the 9V used for propelling the vehicle?

My interpretation (which is not official) is no, it doesn't. However, do submit an official clarification at sonic.org if you feel necessary.

Hey guys,
My high school's rule book has been delayed in coming to us and so we don't have a copy of the rules. I was wondering if anyone could upload a rule sheet if they already got their rule book?
Thanks

Thatt would violate the copyright rules set by sonic. Read old 2009 rules for a general idea and plan based around this objective: Travel as quickly as possible to a specified distance between 9 and 12 meters
