Today in class we tested our mouse trap car against the rest of the physics students' cars. We had the furthest distance by far. Our car went about 19 meters. The closest car to us was about 15.5 meters. Our car is truly the ultimate mouse trap car. Our car could have went much further if we were to use larger rear wheels, such as paper plates. If you use our design and make some sort of an improvement on it, please email me because I am interested in seeing what little things could have been done to make the car go further. Goood Luck!
