Electrical tape

My students are using electrical tape to cover part of their disc intake so it does not tear into the field tiles, is that legal?

thanks for the info

This is not legal use of tape, tape may be used for wire management only.

Check out R7 in the game manual (https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/2022-2023/vrc-spin-up/VRC-SpinUp-Game-Manual-2.2.pdf) for the only legal use of electrical tape…

You can, probably, use something like a little zip tie loop or a rolling spacer to prevent scratching the field with intake metal, but…

There is nothing in the manual that could prevent you from putting a piece of V5 Smart Cable or a piece of pneumatic tubing below the intake and then wrapping it, while connecting to the intake, with the electrical tape or any similar commercially available material of your choice.

That cable or pneumatic tubing doesn’t even have to be connected to anything as far <R7.f> is concerned:
