Why are discontinued parts permitted for use in vrc? I believe they disadvantage newer teams which won’t have access to parts that would improve their robots.
To give an example, I want to create tracking wheels for odometry. Because of the low amount of space, I have to use single roller Omni wheels, the problem being that vex no longer sells them. Robotshop and robosource do not sell them either. I can’t technically make a post on the forum asking to buy them off someone because of R6 (whose merit I won’t discuss here).
Currently, I’m trying to dremmel a poor 2.75" Omni in half to fulfill the requirements. I’ll edit the post later with pics.
Vex plz fix
