As Jhawk4Jhawk4 stated above, regardless of which team you're on, if you just go for maximum points then your team has the best chance of winning. Don't worry about piece count or speed, just get max points. But, that kind of defeats the purpose of the comp.
I think an interesting addition would be to add a lightning requirement for the speed demons and a max piece allowed requirement for the elitists. That way, the results would be based more on skill (e.g. how many points can you earn while still being faster then the lightning time or while using less then the max piece count). For example, for this level, the speed demons will win because they built green or brown solves and earned points for those badges. A green or brown contraption isn't fitting for a fewest piece solve though, so we had to use powered wheels and thus didn't earn a green or brown badge.
Just an idea.
