Motor 393?

I’m not sure exactly what these motors are called but the old vex motors I believe they are called motor 393. Can they be used on the vex v5 brain if so do they count as one of the 8 motors you are allowed to use in v5?

Unfortunatley, as stated in R6 in the game manual, only V5 electronics are allowed.

Old VEX motors used with the Cortex and PIC control systems. Controllable via PWM with a MC29.

Yes, they can be controlled with a V5 brain using a MC29, with the caveat that they will be run at 5v with significant current limitations relative to the ~8v that they would normally run at on cortex.

No, because they are not legal in VRC.
