Flex Wheels | Questions

So as everyone most likely knows already. The flex wheels are now legal for VRC competitions. BCUZ shows the use of the flex wheels as intakes. I have generated 2 main questions on this.

  1. ) Are you allowed to take chunks of the flexwheel out to form flaps as BCUZ did last year.

  2. ) What type of flex wheel works the best?

Hopefully in the near future we can get the anwser to these questions.

yes. pretty much any physical modification to non-electronic vex parts are legal in vrc. this type of modification is presumably included, unless the gdc states otherwise

I should note that the song used in the video is quite explicit, and young forum-goers should stay away.

I believe this is the link TNT meant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3DyDxbstRU
Be forewarned, however; the music is explicit. I would recommend muting it before watching.

Edit: OOOH sniped by Taran. Nice one


Everyone should be able to use the link now. I am probally going to order the 30A wheels now because they seem fit for the job. Ill tell you guys what I get

I also have a question about flex wheels. Are only Vex wheels allowed, or can we use wheels from AndyMark?

VEXPro flex wheels are cross-listed as part of the V5 product line, so are legal for use in VRC under R6a. AndyMark flex wheels are not a part of any VEX product line, so are not legal for use in VRC.


Didn’t think so. Thank you!
