    this was my 2017 entry into the science olympiad. the basic rules were that you needed to make a car that went a certain distance, to be decided at the competition. the trial in the video was my fault, i set it for 12 meters when it was supposed to go 11. XD The second one was almost perfect. That wasn't my fault though, my dad accidentally hit the home button and couldn't get back to the camera. I just found out i got 2nd out of like 15 or so. i almost cried. i still cant believe it actually worked. I worked off from this design, adding two switches (one on the top to turn it off and on, and a leaf at the end of the axle set nc, so it turns off the motor and brakes the car) and a pulley (a o ring) to attach to the motor
