[FTC]: FTC Tetrix Extra Parts

I came across something today that completely floored me. On the Lego Education website where you can order more Tetrix Parts, all the parts say "Pre-Order Only". I had seen this before and assumed that this meant that it might be the end of October before we could get extra parts. I found out today that all the parts say that they will not be shipped until January 2009. .

If your competition is early (like ours on Dec. 6) then you might be out of luck.

Re: [FTC]: FTC Tetrix Extra Parts

We have successfully ordered and received Tetrix parts from the Pitsco site. We haven't ordered any Lego parts at all, however.

Which is great because we ran out of nuts, bolts, and shaft collars within the first few sessions of building...

Re: [FTC]: FTC Tetrix Extra Parts

you have to sign in with your team number at the website. Use the links of the FTC FIRST page. on the public side of the website you cant get parts because they are in such high demand due to FIRST.
