60 Second Auton Rules

Similar to Vex IQ, during the 60 second auton period during a skills match, is one allowed to manually move the robot when it is not moving?

you are not allowed to manually move the robot at all, at any time, during any type of match.


Full skills rules are here: https://link.vex.com/docs/vrc-tower-takeover/AppendixB

I was just confused because I couldn’t find this explicitly stated in there.

I can see that. The skills rules are an appendix to the main rules. The first line of the skills rules is

Please note that all rules from “The Game” section of the manual apply to the Robot Skills Challenge,
unless otherwise specified.

So, there will be a rule in the main manual that prohibits touching.

There are exceptions in VRC rule <G9a>.


sort of. I said “manually move” not touch. you can touch your robot sometimes. like if you forget to turn it on or something.
