I can believe it, easily. Especially if it happened during FRC build season. Andy and Paul have consistently demonstrated that they will do anything they are able to do (which is a lot, in both cases) to make sure they fill orders. That includes getting the parts from a competitor, when necessary.

FRC teams get parts from competitors all the time, up to and including the finals of MSC, Einstein, and IRI. It happens so often we have come to expect it. Why should AM and VP behave differently? It won't stop them trying to surpass each other when introducing new products.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.
