By popular demand I have shirts now! I picked the super soft, high quality shirts and make $0 on all items which is why they are priced so handsomely :)

Summary: To understand how mousetrap cars work you first need to understand the concept of mechanical advantage. There are 4 principles to win with a long distance car:
And 4 principles for winning with a speed car:
Finally, we visit the Science Olympiad to see these principles in action

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

That was one of the most interresting videos I've watched recently. Respect! Mousetrap-cars remind me to the "Spaghetti-bridge" contest: start with curiousity and fun - end with science. I have 2 thoughts/questions about that: 1. have You ever tried the difference when You wind the axle the opposite way to run the car "backwards" ? (same car, but with front wheel drive... the movement of the lever would follow the car's driving direction. That might help pushing the car a bit further..?) 2. You've tested different lever lengths - have You also tried different lever weigths or -balancings? (eg.put a small amount of ballast at the end of the lever: as long as the mousetrap has much tension, the ballast must be lifted gainst gravity - but it's mass would give additional torque when the mousetrap-spring looses force at the end of the run...)

He said he would lift the car off the ground. Give those kids the cash!! The car never left the ground, it was resting on the jack which was on the ground :)

I wish I lived in USA your teachers and teaching methods are awesome. India on the other hand has just tons of pressure due its education system which curbs the Imagination of kids at a very young age.

I love how he says his dream is to one day teach high school physics, like Mark, you could literally pick your school and I bet they'd hire you even if they already had one. Who in their right mind would turn this guy down? I get lost in these videos sometimes because they just make so much sense, and they teach you something about concepts you might have thought you'd never learn about in your life.

What about using a conical pulley? It would act sort of as a statically set CVT. The smaller portion of the pulley would allow the car to start off faster, but as it continues down the track, and thus, up into the larger portions of the pulley, you could extend the distance greatly while maintaining speed.

How about putting cd's into lathe, sharpening the edge decrease surface area, then applying rubber compound to edge to give it better hold with less surface area?
