That should be enough force to them out the ring, however their are number of problems I've seen happen with this designHey guys,
They just reinstated Sumo for states for Ohio as a trial. My friend and I are using a modified Traxxas rc email@example.com with some pretty sweet speed (if we back out of the square and floor it at the opposing bot) around 10-20 mph. At ~1.9kg and a strong metal scoop, I would assume that would be pretty effective right? Or is the design flawed by speed? Just wondering, as we didn't have it at regionals.
1. The most annoying problem is control, fast RC cars generally will have trouble turning and stuff inside the small area
2. Mostly what I've seen is that fast RC cars will just jump over the other bot, especially if the other is a wedge, now you could solve this by having a very low scoop but that leads to the third problem
3. Keeping the scoop on the ground, this will be hard at high speed and if they use a raised ring you are thoroughly screwed if you have a low scoop
