Motor screws


R20 c. ii. States that “removing or replacing the screws from the V5 Smart Motor Cap” is legal; however, in R11 the size screw that is required for this has been taken out from the game manual. Does this mean that products like motor casing screws sold by Robosource are now illegal since they are smaller than allowed in R11?

If these screws are legal does that mean that we can also purchase longer types of these screws (up to 2.5 in) allowed by R11?

Answered by committee

R20 is intended to be an exception to R11, i.e. the Smart Motor Cap is the only place where M1.6 x 16mm screws are permitted. We will be sure to clarify this in a future Game Manual update.
