We can't do your school work for you, but I suggest experimenting with boolean variables. For example, for the part where you want the cars to stop, make it so whenever the car moves, it checks the boolean to see if it should move or not. i.e
Code:
if canMove
car move forward 1m 0.25 seconds
you can loop this until the car reaches the finish. You can also do the same thing with a while loop.
Code:
while canMove
car move forward 1m 0.25 seconds
when either car reaches the finish, set canMove to false...

I hoped this helped!

How did you do that? With the code in the scroll boxes, I mean.

that makes no sense because it does not know if something can move or not and you dont tell it what to move...

I didn't do the entire project for you and I am sorry for that. You should try experimenting with booleans and implement them in the drag racing game. I assumed you already knew how to make objects move

If there was a clap emoticon, you would have earned it, my good sir! There are so many people asking for community to do their whole homework/projects to be done...
