Any idea what the top score for hovercraft test portion was? By my calculations from comparing our two teams, I think it's 35 which is what we got on the test. Is there any other score higher than this? That moment when you have perfect mass score but your hovercraft is still too fast and gets destroyed on time. Such is life.

Troy destroyed everyone in terms of the test, according to the supervisor.

Our B team got a mass score of 1860, time of 12.4 ==> 47.4435 on build. Our A team got a full mass score and a time score of 9 ==> 34 on build

Our A team got a 35 on test, our B team got a 26.

B team ended up 7th, A was 8th.

therefore 47.4435 + 50* 26/x is slightly larger than 34 + 50* 35/x (let's say the difference is 2 points, which is probably being somewhat generous)

Thus the max score is between 35 and 39

Could you explain how you got the 35-39 range for the test?

Quickly looking on Wolfram Alpha, it seems like the max test score just has to be more than 33ish
