The trick is to make a 90 degree angle with your hands and try to get it as close as possible. Try this and you will win state and nationals.
Won states last year, can confirm this is 100% true. I found that my hands formed better 90° angles than my partner's, his hands were always 0.55° less.

I wasn't talking about you, i was talking about Almandine2. I think Almandine trolled Towers and BB last year on his previous account.

I was planning on making a rifle scope holder to the top of my buggy and sight the crosshairs on the inside side of the outer bonus can. Then I could just make my car go a little to the right of the can

Would that work consistantly as you adjust your steering or are you using one set curve? Our scope measurement is different for each distance.

To have it so it adjusts with the steering, one could mount it onto the end of the caliper that moves along with your axle that gets adjusted by it, then have that always be on the same point and just move the rest of your car. Pretty much the inverse of what is probably "normal" or most common thought about first.

Um so can we use lasers or not? The rules contradict each other.

No you can't use lasers. It's an electronic device, which is prohibited.

Are we allowed to impound the lasers and remove it before the run?
