A robot uses rubber bands in order to properly intake and release game objects. If these rubber bands were to snap, would it be legal as per rule <SG5> and/or <SG6> to replace these rubber bands?
Thanks in advance!
No, this would not be legal. Team members may not introduce anything other than Match Loads to the playing field. Thus, bringing a rubber band onto the field would be illegal.
Thanks for answering my question! Although I do have some follow up questions now.
Would it be legal to repair the existing rubber bands by tying a knott?
Is it legal to introduce new batteries (7.2V Robot Batteries or 9V Backup Batteries) if those on the robot are uncharged or if the batteries are nonexistant?
