Tips for new players : too light won't race

There's nothing better than having fresh new faces with crazy new cars at a Rocketcar day. One thing to keep in mind if you're car is too light it won't be allowed to race. This is because (from experience with doomed past entries) a very light, small rocket car will start spinning and proceed to select an path in 3 dimensions, in mid-air, at speed.

Examples of things that are too light:
- a pack of cards
- a cucumber
- a matchbox car
- a wire construction

The best way to work out whether your car's construction will work is to test it. I understand this can be difficult without the gear so if it's untested and light, just understand that people's safety might mean you can't race it. That said, bring it on.
