Now that VEX Worlds is over, I can finally get around to getting some new products added to the website!
(Note: Instead of announcing everything at one time, I’ll just announce everything in real time as I finish adding each product to the website. So be sure to check back throughout the day!)
If I’m not mistaken, all of the products being announced today were introduced in VEX EXP Education Kits, but are now being sold individually, and officially made legal for use in the VEX Robotics Competition.
These adapt the high strength shaft bores in gears, sprockets, and wheels to the 1/8” (low-strength) shafts. These are each sold in packs of (20), and will (at some point) replace the existing High Strength Shaft Insert Kit (276-3881) completely.
That’s everything for now! As always, all these new products are now in stock on the US store, and will trickle out internationally over the next few weeks.
If/when will we see 24, 48, and 72 tooth gears in a low strength profile? Certainly there won’t be just a high strength profile for only these three types of gears, because that would not follow the previous pattern of all gears having low strength and high strength equivalents.
It would not be. You are allowed to modify any official VEX parts (except those that are excluded, such as electronics and pneumatics). If you took a gear and cut it down until it was just a piece of flat plastic it would not suddenly become a custom plastic part counting towards your plastic allotment, it would just be a modified gear. This is no different.
