Answered: Can omni directional wheels be used for the ringmaster challenge?

Omni directional wheels appear to be used in some videos that are showing supposedly official ringmaster competitions in different countries. However, I don’t think these are allowed based on the list of allowed parts. Please can you clarify. Thank you.

Hi kelva - thank you for bringing this to our attention. Yes, as an official VEX IQ part that is available on the VEX website, Omni-Directional Wheels (part number 228-2536) are legal for use in the VEX IQ Challenge.

We will be updating and posting a revised version of the Legal Parts Appendix shortly to correct this error.

Update - the revised version of the Legal parts Appendix has now been posted on the 2017-2018 Current Game page.
