Legality of Old Thin 2.75 Omni Wheels


With the removal of the clause that legalized discontinued VEX products in the tipping point game manual, are discontinued VEX parts such as the old 2.75 inch omni wheels still legal for use on robots?

Thank you for your time!

Please see these related Q&A posts for more information about legacy part legality:

In general, the official VEX website can be used as the definitive resource regarding current part availability / legality. Discontinued products that are no longer found on the VEX website are no longer considered "part of the VEX V5 system" (in the context of R6) and are therefore not legal for use.

The 276-2165 omni wheels are considered a legacy / discontinued product, and are therefore not legal for use.
