Description: Each team will build a structure on top of a PineCar Racer. The structure will be designed to hold and protect one or two eggs as the car is rolled down a progressively steeper series of ramps and crashed into an immovable barrier.

Good catch. It appears that our go-to supplier for these changed the product slightly and we didn't notice.
Our bags will continue to be purchased from Walmart. The revised bag size is 10 3/4" x 5 1/8" x 3 1/4".
The Egg should not be wrapped or covered. Egg should be able to come out of the Structure as a free fall after they run each Slope to ensure its not leaking.
Yes as far as nothing is touching the ramp before the launch
It is acceptable for the egg to fall from the back, Front, Top as far as its a free fall.
You can use one all the items in the brown bag. Not everything from the bag needs to be used
No I don't inspect after each run. It's only one time prior to first run.
But while wiping, if anything falls out, it will remain out for future runs.
