I was wondering if the mounting nuts available for the Vex pistons are legal for competition use? http://imgur.com/zUFxm9P?tags (Image attached for clarification, I’m not referring to the Hex Nuts that are used on the piston rod)
I haven’t ordered Pneumatics from Vex for awhile and I don’t remember if they’re included, but I know that SMC does sell them with their pistons (Vex supplier, so totally legal pistons.)
I believe they are 5/16-24 UNF.
If they are for some reason not legal, I would simply ask that the GDC seriously reconsider as they serve the exact same purpose as the pneumatic reservoir mounting nuts, but on the piston. A team could, with a bit of difficulty, produce something legal that would serve the same purpose out of Lexan or Metal and a threading kit, but if they’re already available, why force people to go to that trouble?
