Answered: VEX Screws

I noticed screw sizes only go up to 2 inches in length. Is it legal to have screws over 2 inches in length assuming they are identical to VEX screws just longer?

Thank you,

Let’s take a look at the rule in the VEX Gateway Game Manual that talks about the use of non VEX parts, in this case specifically the rule that deals with screws.

Thus, there is no provision for the use of screws longer than 2" long, and since there are no screws longer than 2" in the VEX Robotics Design System, using them would not be legal.
