Answered: Clarification on <R5>

Would it be legal to use parts clearly outside of their intended purpose?

For example, could extension wires be used as the rope in a pulley system?

It is legal to use VRC legal parts for any purpose within the rules. However, trying to VEX parts outside their intended purpose in an effort to make them legal according to <R5b> is not legal. i.e Don’t try and use VEX packaging on a VRC robot.

This would be legal.
