Usage Guidelines All Questions



<R7>The game manual doesn't say anything about non-slip mat. Can i use a non-slip mat a different color from the original ?

Answered by committee

Rule <R6> specifies that Robots are built from the VEX V5 system, and rule <R7> lists some commercially-available products that may also be used on the Robot. As you indicated in your question, anti-slip mat is not included in rule <R7> or anywhere else in the game manual. VEX Robotics offers black anti-slip mat in two thicknesses, and these are the only anti-slip mat products that may be used on Spin Up Robots.
