Legality of zipties on wheels

our team just had a question about using zips to attach our wheels and gears together, there’s nothing specific in the manual about the legality of this (yes i understand that if its not specified in the rules 99% of the time its legal until further notice) but we really want a concrete answer for this, because if not im going to have to redesign the drive, or just leave the wheels with slop.

Fixed that for you.

Anything not explicitly made illegal by the manual is legal.


appreciate it. just never seen it before.

I would agree with the original 99% statement and not the 100% statement, only due to G3, I experienced something with G3 recently. before the Q and A for where preloads can be placed was answered, we wanted to place our preloads on the opposing alliances side of the field just for fun, but the head ref (@Nathan_Rossi) told us that if we did that, it would be a G3 violation. Which is the 1% of the time what the game manual doesn’t explicitly state something as illegal but was ruled to be illegal.
