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

If you take a look at last year's national results for WIDI, some of these results aren't as surprising as they may first seem; it's more in comparison to the rest of their results.
I take that personally, that 23rd in WIDI last year was hard-earned >:(
To be fair though, our team never has the same WIDI team between invitationals and nationals
I'll do a review of my events once someone else posts in order to avoid double posting
