Is there a limit to the amount of Vex latex tubing you’re allowed to use? For example, the nylon rope is limited to 48" and the max for elastic bands is 10.
Additionally, are we allowed to use locally supplied equivalent of the Vex latex tubing, to save the hassle of shipping time etc.
The only restrictions on allowable robot components are listed in <R5>. There is no limit for VEX Latex Tubing.
Please note that <R5> states the following:
To determine whether a product is “official” or not, consult www.VEXrobotics.com.
Products identical to those listed on this site are also considered “official VEX products”.
You need to ensure the locally supplied equivalent is “identical” for it to be legal per <R5>. Non-identical Latex Tubing would NOT be allowed.
