I had trouble finding an applicable rule.
<G7> Drivers switch Controllers midway through the Match. In a given Match, no Driver shall operate a Robot for more than thirty-five (0:35) seconds. The two Drivers must switch their controller between twenty-five (0:25) seconds and thirty-five (0:35) seconds remaining in the Match. The second Driver may not touch his/her Team’s controls until the controller is passed to him/her. Once the controller is passed, the first Driver may no longer touch his/her Team’s controls.
Can a team start a motor moving before the match? For example, have the robot start a flywheel so it is spinning when the match starts? There is no version of <G11> for the beginning of the match. It would be possible to start the motor without using the controller.
