I'm assuming you mean how did people get 20 seconds per rocket last year? If not, correct me, and also if what you meant is that there are people achieving 20+ seconds this year... HOW? But to answer your assumed question, the nationals winning time was 20+ seconds. I believe the 6th place rockets got ~15 seconds per rocket... how do they achieve these remarkable times? Lots and lots of testing!
EDIT: @sciolyohio and kendreaditya and anyone who attended WSU invitational, how were the averages only 3-5 seconds!? Those times seem absurdly low. Was it something to do with the launcher, weather, etc?
I didn't go to WSU, my school Eagle View MS, went Rustin and Little Tiger. Rustin's highest times were a total of 18 seconds and Little Tiger was 19 seconds. However, I am achieving 20 seconds, by my egg is killing me (it breaks sometimes on pavement).
