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.

Just be prepared for every circumstance. Literally every single one you can think of.
