Was the car in steady and stable motion throughout?
Was the car moving in a straight line mostly?
Did lever and string operate smoothly as well as expected?
|State 1 area for modification||Add blobs of hot glue next to the metal loops t prevent the front axle from moving left and right while in motion.||The back axle too loosely connected to the back wheels, apply hot glue to connect them better.|
|State rationale(s) for the above proposed modification.||The front axle should not be free moving as it will make the mousetrap car move left or right depending on its centre of gravity.||As the satay stick is not directly connected to the wheel, the satay stick moves freely when the mousetrap is activated and therefore does not move the mousetrap car.|
Post modification dimensions (they are the same)

Overall Width: 12.3 cm
