Yeah, I'm not sure which is better. Because if you try to collect a lot of data it takes a lot of time to get extra, unnecessary information. However, it can also be more accurate or easier in some ways.
Too bad Battery Buggy won't be an event next year. I guess it makes sense though, because eventually all the cars will become very similar. However, I did learn a lot about mechanics and building. Our nationals car was definitely much improved from the car we had at regionals. Thanks to everyone who made suggestions and helped us with ideas.
