Fun fact: The test packet CD comes with pictures of everyone's buggy from nationals! They're copyrighted, so I can't post them here. But I noticed some things that most of the top buggies had in common.
  • A pretty big motor
  • Gears
  • Wingnut braking
  • Neatness and cleanliness (Except South MS, that buggy looked like spaghetti!)
Also, Marie Murphy, is that a knife? Looks dangerous...

It was interesting to see the different kinds.
lots of similar designs.
What/where is the knife on Marie Murphies(num13?)?

Oh wait, I'm sorry, not Marie Murphy. I was talking about team #1, and I looked on the BB list and Marie Murphy was at the top (because they won) so I thought they were #1 by accident. Marie had a really good idea for keeping the buggy aligned, by the way. Team #1 was Lakeshore.
