Hi,
  We've been trying to get the engagement model to function properly and we're having a tough time.  The problem seems to be that there is not enough weight on the top of the model to keep the gears engaged.  We can spin the pinwheel and watch the gears slip past each other, resulting in no movement on the scoring dial.
  I have checked the updates to both the building model and scoring, From what I can tell the scoring is based on the number of 90 degree turns that you spin the pinwheel.  The method used to determine how many turns have been recorded is to use the dial.  Is this a problem with our model build?  Are others having this problem as well?  Am I interpreting the scoring incorrectly?  Will we get points based on the number of turns that we complete, regardless of if the dial moves? Will the Judges be watching for malfunctions?   

Thanks,
Frank Levine
