Answered: broken motor pin on 269

Hi, the other day during construction there was an acident with one of the 269 motor power connections, both connections have broken and are now bare cable, we were just wondering if it is legal to solder these connections to a motor controller 29 or does the motor need replacing

Let’s take a look at what the VEX Sack Attack Game Manual has to say about modifying motors as well as soldering.

Thus, the repairs you described would not be allowed to be used on any part you wish to use during competition. However, feel free to repair the motor and use it for practice or prototyping.

Ok, thanks for the feedback

You’re welcome.
