Even if they were to copy mousetrap with the whole going backwards thing, it would be difficult to do it mechanically w/o arduino and such aids, although it would still be possible.


Agree that B will remain no electronics. Also agree that going backwards is unlikely, although I think it can be done with just switches.

TBH it would be great if there was like a x10 time multiplier and a x2 distance or something like that. Time wasn't a big issue this year, but there were teams which beat others because of the time score, even though the distance score was worse.

This is literally the point of every vehicle event.

I looked at the 2011 rules and it was close to that. Curved track. 25 pts for each second. 10 pts for each cm.

Anyway speed meant a lot more last time they had a curved track. But batteries were limited as well.

Personally, I like the way they did it this year.
