Currently, I’m trying to make a lift but doing so with a 17.5 inch long C-Channel (which is all I have) will exceed the competition’s robot size limit. I don’t have any other C-Channel smaller in length left so my first thought was to saw 5 inches off of the C-Channel to turn it into a 12.5 inch long C-Channel, but I’m not sure if that is legal or not despite reviewing the Game Manual.
Any help on figuring this out is appreciated, thanks!
and yeah I’m pretty new to VEX. 2 years ago was my first time getting into it and I competed in the Tower Takeover game for that year. I couldn’t really do anything with VEX the following year because of COVID but now I can so this is basically gonna be my second year participating
Ahh I found the part where it says most modifications to non-electrical parts are allowed
R22Most modifications and repairs to non-electrical components are allowed. Physical modifi- cations such as bending or cutting are permitted and may be done to legal VEX Robotics Competition metal structure or plastic components.
