I'm assuming that Nationals target time is going to be up there right? Like probably from 30-40 seconds? It's tough to get up in the 500's without having a high target time unless you have over 96cm of gaps.

I think he meant way earlier in the year, not at states...

If you are asking about mine, it was at states. When the marble landed after the first jump, it hit a wall while it was traveling the 5 cm. I still got points for the second jump and the time though. I would have gotten another 150 points if the jumped counted.

i'm assuming you're saying that it hit the wall before it traveled 5 cm? Mine kinda bounces when it receives that ball on the last jump but no one's ever mentioned anything abt that.

Its hard to explain. As the marble was traveling 5 cm, it hit the wall that prevented the marble from leaving the track. Even though it still went 5 cm, the judges still interpreted it as a violation.

oh i see what you mean. I'm assuming if it slightly bounces on the receiver it should be fine right? Cause my last receiver is metal and the ball slight bounces, would you say that's not against the rules?
