Answered: <R7>b. Potentiometer Repair Legality

Would it be legal to repair a potentiometer using James’ instructions (

Seems like <R7> does indeed permit it because the repaired potentiometers would be identical to a legal vex part:

Also, more generally, can any VEX sensor’s insides be repaired such that the original functionality is not modified because the result would be a part “which is identical to a legal VEX part”?

We are very careful about allowing any modifications of electrical components. This type of modification is being ruled illegal for VEX Toss Up, but we will consider allowing this in future seasons.
