Answered: VEXU: New motor limit consideration?

Hi Karthik,

In response to this recent rule change quoted here

<R11> Robots may use either:

Option 1: Up to ten (10) VEX EDR motors or VEX Servos (Any combination, up to ten) and a legal VRC pneumatic system. (See <R18>)

Option 2: Up to twelve (12) VEX EDR motors or VEX Servos (Any combination, up to twelve) and no pneumatic components, excluding pneumatic tubing.

I was wondering if the GDC ever looked at the VEXU side of the competition and thought of the same sort of situation for us. 12 motors with pneumatics, and 14 motors without pneumatics. Since this past year showed that VEXU really is the bigger brother of VRC I think it would open up some huge doorways that could be really impressive.


This is not a change that will be made for the Nothing But Net Season, however we are open to changes in future VEX U seasons.

Good to know! I remember hearing some cool ideas about the future of VEXU during Toss Up worlds I think. Anyways, thanks Karthik!

You’re welcome!
