    Can you dip Vex parts in a liquid rubber/flex seal for grip or is it against the rules. I was planning on dipping my lifting forks for caps in it because i wasn't getting enough grip from rubber bands

    To echo those prior to me, this is not legal.

    Vex sells antislip matting that is pretty similar to a lot of those found in stores. You could zip tie this to your robot to achieve the same effect.

    I use mesh surrounded by rubber bands on mine, and its fine. Might want to try that instead of flex seal...

    you could also wrap rubber bands or pneumatic tubing around it...

    Never seen this, but maybe you could use the 1/8 inch nylon rope?

    haha no.

    But you could use anti-grip matting attached by rubber bands/zip ties to repeat those above me. I'd also say you can use pneumatic tubing.
