So say you are using rubber bands for your roller intake, but you don’t have easy access to VEX CERTIFIED rubber bands.(probably $20 per tiny pack of them) Has anyone ever not passed inspection because of this? As long as they are generally the same size, to my understanding a component is still considered vex identical if it is a different color, nothing to worry about? (of course nothing would ever happen at local tournaments, you will be lucky if the inspectors/referees even know what ITZ is) but if our team gets to worlds, I am not sure how much they inspect robots there. I have heard inspectors are a lot more strict at worlds.
probably the stupidest question ever, but hey I thought I would ask it anyway.
