In the V5 Smart Motors, there are slits that appear to be for ventilation but with further inspection, they appear to be decoration. Before any modification is made we were wondering if modifying these slits to actually allow them to vent would be allowed. The closest rule I could see is part A which reads
“Motors (including the internal PTC or Smart Motor firmware), microcontrollers (including V5
Robot Brain firmware), extension cords, sensors, controllers, battery packs, reservoirs,
solenoids, pneumatic cylinders, and any other electrical component or pneumatics
component of the VEX EDR platform may NOT be altered from their original state in ANY
We would like to cut the slits to allow better ventilation to cool down the motors while in use.
