    And the friction of the axel on whatever you have holding the axel in place. :P Mine ended up going 4.9 meters (where 3 was the minimum to get a 100). If I added an extension to the mousetrap arm, it could have gone a lot farther I believe. Pics coming up!

    It would be interesting to see how it would compare to using a flywheel.

    I used Hotwheels CDs as the back wheels. :P But in class, my mousetrap sprung and flew my car to the floor, breaking one of the wheels. Needless to say, I used a lot of tape to fix it. :P
