Are we allowed to use grease/lube on our robot?
Yes, but don’t use aerosol lubricant. Also, use it in moderation.
A quick search of the Game Manual for “grease” yields:
<R7> Certain non-VEX EDR components are allowed. Robots are allowed the following additional “non-VEX” components:
a. Any material strictly used as a color filter or a color marker for a VEX Light Sensor.
b. Any non-aerosol based grease or lubricating compound, when used in extreme moderation on
surfaces and locations that do NOT contact the playing field walls, foam field surface, Cubes, or other Robots.
Please consult the Game Manual thoroughly before posting to the forum.
