The Extent of Motor Modification

1 year ago

What is considered modifying a motor? It has been previously ruled that removing the motor screws does not count, but does removing other parts count?

Similarly to a motor screw, the motor cap is a non-electronic part sold separately on the VEX website, so do you consider removing it from the motor a modification?

Furthermore, can they be modified? Can you cut a motor screw to be shorter or or add another hole in the motor cap for a screw?
