I'm pretty inexperienced, so I would like to get an idea for the changes consistency wise from personal practice to competition day due to all the changes that inevitably take place from travel, etc.

A lot of people have/claim to have 4 ish second cars which are <1cm. I am curious to hear from some experienced ppl regarding the degree of variation at competition vs. personal practice. Idk if I made any sense at all, but if anyone understood me, please explain ;)
To be honest,
I think some scores are over estimated. A score of 5 should medal imo
IMO no. Last year, teams were getting scores of 5 without any bonus for scrambler. (scoring was distance + time). With the bonus this year, top teams i would expect to get negative teens. We are getting -5 on average with a slow car.


Sorry I meant -5

oof my partner and I are hoping for neg teens... but i doubt more than 3 teams will be negative teens. From what I've heard, its a lot harder to get <=1 cm at competition than most ppl anticipate. I'm excited to see how it unfolds tho

Yeah competition everything can change. People are nervous, wrong wheel turns, etc.
