No. If you want your team to do well you have to do all of your events, not just two. Bombing those other events is really, really bad and they add a lot to your team score. Although you might not place as well, I highly suggest focusing on all your events to not let your team down. I'm doing 6 events and working hard in all of them. It's the only way to (hopefully) be more consistent as a team and place better.
How do you have time to fully devote to 6 events?

ngl though since most of my events are builds/really light studies its a bit easier for me

Lol. most of my builds that i've done before are generally more of a one time thing (think hovercraft) so i dont have to keep rebuilding a device. ELG is kind of time consuming though :|

Yes! You could just kinda build it once at the beginning of the season and as long as it didn't break you didn't have to replace it lol. Petty much just became a study event

Also flying events are better (proven fact)

I've always wanted to burn my old balsa structures, but I've just never had the chance to do so. :( However, I have had the pleasure of ripping apart poorly printed ABS parts from my nats buggy last year. :)

Lol.
1. At least your hovercraft worked very well and didn't almost catch on fire... :lol:
2. Broken towers always made for a good fire during these cold IL winters... :D
