Answered: Lubricant

Using the linear sliders, are we allowed to lubricate them in anyway? If they are allowed are there any banned lubricants?


Let’s take a look at the VEX Gateway Game Manual to find the answer to this question. <R7e> answers both parts of this question directly.

So, yes you are allowed to use lubricants on the linear slides, provided you follow the restrictions listed in <R7e>. Specifically, you are not allowed to use aerosol based greases, and any grease must be used in moderation.

Thanks Karthik!
