What did you score? Would be willing to share some additional data from the state competiton, like target distance, distance off, time, and bonus can width?

I was an alternate, so there wasn't much competition.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tell the target distance in case they use the same one for multiple places, but it was a whole number.

I had about a 2.5 second time

I could've gotten away with a 15 cm bonus for my last run, but I set the distance higher than that just in case.

(I actually did a much larger bonus since the first run completely failed :P )

Totally doable! Buggy glider flies over photogate with an on point landing!

Anyway at state my goal is under 3 sec, under 3 cm, under 25 cm gate. Can always get a tighter gate but doubt I will need it. Gota study thermo more anyway...

Imagine if the rules counted the bonus distance as the distance chosen by the participant for the bonus and also had no bonus distance limit.

Then you could have a -99999....... gap

And get a -9999999999....... score
