Compound lever on a mousetrap vehicle?

  1. Dec 30, 2017 #1
    Hello, I'm trying to make my mousetrap car go very fast. I saw this on youtube . Does this provide any advantage to make it go faster? How would you implement a compound lever to a mousetrap car?

    Welcome to the PF.

    Can you define what a compound lever is for us, and describe how you think it might be able to make a mousetrap competition car go faster?

    And since this is for schoolwork with no effort shown on your part, this thread is moved to the Homework forums...
