<R7> Is 228-3201-1934 Legal?

Daniel Yu (Event Partner)

The part is not in either the legal parts, nor the illegal parts list. A similar item is found in legal parts listed as 228-2500-1934, we would assume 228-3201-1934 should be legal as it's just different color of the legal version. But an official clarification would be appreciated.

Answered by committee

Yes, this is legal.

The Legal Parts Appendix includes the following introduction on page 2:

Because VEX IQ parts come in many colors, any colors depicted in the renderings below may not necessarily reflect the colors of the final physical products.

This also means that if a part has the same Unique Part Identifier (i.e. last 3-4 digits) as a part listed in this Appendix, but a different Color SKU Identifier, then it is still considered legal. This article explains the VEX IQ part number system in more detail:

We will be sure to clarify this further in a future VIQC Legal Parts Appendix update.
