Design Rationale:

We added a lever-arm as it allowed the length between the starting and end point to be lengthened, allowing more string to be pulled and therefore, allowing the Mouse Trap car to move further.

Around the styrofoam wheels, we placed rubber bands in order to in the friction it had on the ground so that there would be more grip between the wheels and the road/tarmac, allowing the wheels to move.
