Why not go for the universe breaking -1 cm gap?

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

They either have a godly buggy or they got reallly lucky. Idk, maybe its a troll

1.9 seconds is faster than my run at nats (2.086, fastest run at nats last year)
while it is bs its probably possible even with dc motors

I mean, you can buy a 3000 rpm dc motor, and use an absurdly high gear ratio and make it have less than a 1 second speed.

Although most people don't do that since it lowers the accuracy by a lot.

yeah, you probably would have to make the buggy super light, like literally balsa chasis

<1.9 s is definitely possible, and not necessarily at the loss of accuracy. The national EV champion in 2016 had 1.6 seconds with perfect accuracy and was not the fastest device at the tournament. Although they used brushless motors, I think 1.9 is possible with brushed. That said, I agree its unlikely.
