Answered: Transmission

Hello our team was wondering if we built a trasmission with out a motor could we just loosen collars and switch it. could this be done?:confused:

In a technical sense, this would be possible. However I cannot comment on whether this would be legal in VRC tournaments.

Are you asking if it is allowable to have your drivers manually switch gears by interacting with the robot?

I will move this question into the official VEX Gateway Q&A so that it can be answered.


Well yes i would like to switch during a match.

Making functional changes to your robot during a match, like the one you’ve described, is not legal. Please see rules <SG5> and <SG6> of the VEX Gateway Game Manual for further details. I’ve quoted these rules below for your convenience.

thank you!:wink:

You’re welcome.
