Answered: Motor Casing as a Non-functional Decoration?


I am aware that you are not allowed to have extra motors exceeding your limited allotment even if they are not plugged in. But can you have the empty plastic shell of a motor mounted to your robot? It would not be plugged in and not have the chord or internals. Would it count as a non-functional decoration?

Thank You!


No, this is not legal as it would create unnecessary confusion for referees and inspectors. It would be considered a violation of <R15a>:
