The 2x Beam Long Pack will help us better accommodate our students, we’ve been getting short on these parts.

Thank you!!

I bet the shock absorber will be part of the new game next year…

I’m thinking a slightly longer wheel base and four diagonal mounted shocks will make stretch much sturdier and not wobble. The 1/3 shocks on the claw will make gripping big stacks of rings repeatable.

Thanks for making bundles of these pieces for us!

Are they legal for this year? Are they in the legal or illegal docs???

UPDATE:

It looks like the corner connectors are all in the legal docs already, along with the beams. The shocks are not legal or illegal yet…

Seems that the Shock absorber are also legal from what I can tell, this is on page 24 the legal part pdf.

You’re right, I missed it… Thanks!

Strong one might be useful for H-drive. If only using one omni in the middle it my sometimes lift off of a non-perfectly flat field and lose traction.

My bag of corner kits arrived today. It’s well past awesome on the WOW scale. It has connectors that I didn’t know I needed until now. Thanks VEXIQ designers!!
