wait, in the rules it says that you can get the 20 point bonus if the wheels do not cross the center line. How does that work with a 3 wheeled vehicle? since 1 wheel will always be on the line?

Both of you are wrong, because the rules say the wheel base has to be at least 20-28cm, i think. So that would be illegal. And Jocool, I was wrong about Jack. He does work.
States is gonna suck... :(

it's 24-28 cm.

I'm not sure what they define the wheel base as (haven't checked my rules in forever), but if your buggy is a 3 wheeled, most probably the front wheel just has to stay on the center line.

thank u. for admitting jack does work. and kahaf, thats the parameters for the wheel base. i think that it would be allowed, except wat i think your saying kahaf is that it is illegal cuz one wheel is under the limit. i agree with that statement.

What kind of speed is everyone's buggy running? I was curious if teams were going for a slower car for more accuracy, or going for speed. My kid's car is traveling the max 10 Meter distance is just over 5 seconds.
