Not really. There is still a resistor in the circuit, and keep in mind the P=V*V/R, thus max power should pretty much occur at the same relative level as max voltage.If this is using max voltage rather than max power, this will definitely be a big game changer. Once again, the focus will be on speed then.
A rather strange obstacle, in my opinion. I think most teams (well, basically all of them) cut down the CD last time. If I remember correctly, the rules last time specifically stated that it could be cut down, but I could be wrong. But hey, something new and different if we are reading the rules correctly.Struck me as a bit unusual, but it does tend to make the teams a bit more even since the wind can not blow thru the CD. We cut it out last time also. Ours looked like an old fashioned windmill.
Oh well, another obstacle to overcome.
