Hello,

Are the VEX Motor Mounts no longer allowed in BEST competition?

We did not get them in the consumable package.  We are a rookie team in Tarrant County, but I have coached BEST in previous years for another school.

Every other year you had the VEX Motor Mount that you screwed the motors into and then attached the mount to your robot.

VEX still sells these as "BEST Robotic" Motor Mounts but we did not get any in our kit.

Can someone please advise.  We are part of Cowtown BEST.

Hi B.Scott,   Since this is your first post, it needs to be moderator approved as "not spam" before it shows up.
 Vex motor mounts are on the 2018 Consumables list as the last line in MISC category, therefore they ARE allowed.
Compliance check should require that all motors be face-screw-mounted rather than friction circumference mounted.
   The motor mounts come in a white vex box about 2x4x6" in size,  or maybe removed from the box and just be a ziplock bag with mounts and bag of screws.
If you still can't find it, you should check with your hub people to see if they were short and plan to deliver later (like IGUS kits were late), or what.
   Anyone else from Cowtown read this?  Did you get your motor mounts?  Were they boxed or bagged?

Our Cowtown kit had them in the bag with the twine.

A rookie team nay have had them bent in thier build sessions.  Perhaps BScott is looking for flat mounting plates instead of the folded bracket looking mounts.

Can you bend these?

Yes.  They are on consumables kit so you can bend or cut or whatever you need.
