Gil bar-yaacov is an unknown quantity at this point
exchange zone ramp height

the lower opening on the exchange wall has a small ramp next to it.
-in the manual it says the height is 1 and 3/4 inches (page 23)
-in the field tour video its says 1 and 5/8 (1:10 in the exchange and portal video)
-in the team drawings it says 1.5... (team drawings is the plans for building field parts from wood given by FIRST, page 6)

i assume the real size is the one in the manual. does anyone have any clarifications for this? (there is also the chance that everything is correct and im just dumb... )

thanks

Re: exchange zone ramp height

Check the manual number 1 but as always FIRST has tolerances for how the field is set up as it wont always be to the tee of what the drawings are so design to accommodate all 3 options there is no big difference so it should be easy

Re: exchange zone ramp height

The authoritative source is the field drawings (not the TEAM versions). However, it is no more likely to be accurate than the three sources you listed.
