Answered: Wire stripped: legal/nonlegal?

In a recent mishap one of the wires leading to one of our motors got caught in some gears, and in the process the wires were stripped of their covering. The damaged wires were taped to protect the copper and no other electrical changes were made. However, would this solution be cause for disqualification? And is there a way to get the motor wires repaired?

Unfortunately the inspectors at the events have no way of knowing WHAT modifications (if any) were made. When they see electrical taped wires it is well within their bounds to rule it illegal. This is ultimately up to the inspectors.

You can call to get the wire repaired by IFI, but a new motor will cost less than the minimum repair charge.
