So you're saying both "airplane" or "levitating car" models are allowed.

are we only allowed to use one motor? or can we use multiple motors
since the rules specify "up to two propellers" but they dont say anything about motors

another question from my friend: does the track have to be on a slant?

No. In fact, the track should be as flat as possible.

I think the test is only for the high school level. Am I correct. If not I am in trouble.

Just realized that there is also a written test.
1) What do you think they will ask, and can we bring a calculator?
2) How will the test be administered at NYS competition C Division?
Just for Division C right?

Does anyone know if we can have things to balance the car overhanging the walls? They wouldn't be constantly touching, but just their for guidance and to realign it if it tipped. We have nails sticking out the side of our car.

The test is just for division C. Also, I am sure that you can have something sticking out of the side of the car to balance it, just you must be careful in how you place it, or it might end up being counterproductive.

I am a new coach for this trial event and need to order the track. I see from the NY site (http://www.newyorkscioly.org/SOPages/COTResources.html) which the MagLev Science Olympiad description points to says that there are both Kelvin and Pitsco tracks but Pitsco moved their magnets.

Who is the manufacture of the tracks which will be at nationals? Does anybody know so I can make sure I order the right ones.

Thanks.
They say that they used Pitsco in the past, so I am assuming they will use Kelvin. Both are just as similar though.
