In order to calculate this, Virtual Car uses an equation that includes the following things:
Hint: the distance the car can travel is the number of revolutions it takes to wind the spring all the way, multiplied by the distance the car travels with each revolution. Predicting the "number of revolutions" calls for a pretty complicated equation (you would need calculus to set it up), but "distance per revolution" has a pretty easy equation. Feel free to take a guess at either one.
