Weight???

We are wondering if we can add weight to counterbalance another component of our robot. We know that we cannot add "dead weight" to make our robot stronger but are not sure if we can add weight to counterbalance another component. Thanks

you can add weight for any reason as long as it is legal materials and doesn't cause you to go over the 130lb weight limit.

Where did you hear that you can't use dead weight? You should ask them if you are allowed to use live weight
