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.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.as long as part of the weel base encompasses the center line.
Last time that I checked, our team's buggy was travelling 8 meters in about 4 seconds. That translates into around 5 seconds for 10 meters.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.
not necessary. You have to factor in your max. speed and how long it takes to get there (your acceleration) before you can say something like that. There may be teams that have very fast 10m times, but their 5m times are lacking. Adjustable gear ratios would be great for this, however I don't see how this is possible.Last time that I checked, our team's buggy was travelling 8 meters in about 4 seconds.

Let's assume the buggy reaches its terminal speed at 5 m mark (in our case, it does so around 3 m mark). Therefore, from 5 m to 8 m the buggy maintains its terminal speed. If 8 m is covered in 4 seconds, then the average speed is 8/4 = 2 meters per second. Since the terminal speed is greater than the average speed, then for the last 2 meters (from 8 m to 10 m) the buggy will be moving with a speed greater than 2 m/s. Even if we assume a speed of 2 m/s for the last two meters, the total time comes out close to 5 seconds.not necessary.
