So ive just been studying up on this event...is it like the Mousetrap of B div? Ya, a vulgar comparison - but there are similar issues that you would face in the process of constructing and testing a buggy.
Yes, and no.
Most wheeled events are very similar to each other. Except sumobots and the like but that's not really a wheeled event. There are similar issues, like skid, speed, accuracy, etc.
But the objectives are different, but if you're good at one of the wheeled events I do not see great difficulty in transitioning to the next wheeled event. many of the basics of the design are the same for both events.
