Speed of the computer seems to effect times. My wife's > 30sec on our old machine. I've seen 10sec (only 80%) on my 9 mth old PC.

Thanks Pat. I'm home sick today and this is a perfect way to kill time.

I have experimented with wheel sizes and I think a 6 unit diameter wheel gives you the best acceleration and top speed, and is large enough to get over that Belgian road

15/15 in :12

Ive been trying to come up with a way to make a carrier with locking lid that only has one large wheel, which can cross the course in under 8 seconds if done correctly. Cant make a latching lid mechanism that will hold. Made one work with a 2 wheeled motorcycle type vehicle though.
