At last I am getting round to finishing the rules for the schools
competitions. I have had a little thought about the finish gantry.
If the finish "gantry" is just two vertical poles, one on each side of the
track, it would be impractical for a mouse to use them for braking. The
mouse cannot stretch across both poles without being oversize and if it
uses just one pole for physical braking, it will spin off the track.
This would require some minor redesign of Verminator to use a sideways
mounted finish switch. Would this cause a problem?
School rules are still at
