Go Teams!

Section 3.3.7 -
• Carts must remain in the team pit area when not in use for robot transportation
• All carts should fit through a standard 30-inch door
• Wheels on the cart must not damage site flooring
• Do not add music to the cart.
It appears that teams that have installed sound systems in their carts won’t be able to use them. Has this rule been in the handbook in the past? I wonder how strongly FIRST will enforce this rule, because many teams have spent a lot of time and money putting sound systems on their robot carts.

Discuss these rules here please:
