My prototype works Ok now. :D
Make came over yesterday and helped me straighten the joint, now it won't lock up and I can make it goes forward and reverse by flipping on switch. Woohoo :D

Good Luck with the big pitch. So here's a hint about making the pitch.
Start off with what the problem this solves, and how it is important. Talk about who will use it, and how it will make their lives easier, better, whatever. Don't go in to detail about how your invention works. Get the message across about what it does, but they don't have to understand HOW it works. You only have 2 minutes. First you have to get their attention. Get them thinking about the benefits your invention provides. Then pitch the invention. They just have to like the idea- they don't need to know all the techincal aspects to know if they like it or not.

Well I'm finally all set. I have 2 inventions I'm gonna show and I'm bringing 2 other people who also have 2 ideas. My bro and girlfriend are coming so it should be a fun trip. Does everyone have gold passes? I will prolly be wearing a blue patterned dress shirt and dress/casual pants FYI. Say hi if you see me and I will do the same.

Good Luck!
