My Mousetrap Car

It's not perfect, it only goes 2-3 meters, and it's always failing in one way or another. Getting these things to work is harder than it looks.

I made one in 8th grade in tech-ed. Mine went about 55 feet before it stopped. They sure were fun to make!

you going for distance or speed? Looks pretty good for speed!

Speed. Mine ended up doing a flip at the races and preformed an EPIC FAIL. :P
for distance have the sting come off at the end so it can coast
for speed, buy professional quality high powered mousetraps (the ones the pros use can even dislocate/break fingers

We could only use the mousetrap provided to us, otherwise you were disqualified.

our scool does those, the best ones (for long distance) went tens of hundreds of feet.
