With enough scotch tape, you can do anything. I love duct tape, don’t get me wrong…but scotch tape is pretty cool. Scotch tape in mass quantities is freaking strong!

they should combine scotch and duct tape…

Clear duct tape would be awesome…

(they kinda have that already in the Packaging tape…but its not the same)

To bad we cant use duct tape on the robot as non-functional decoration. I would love to see our robot in red duct tape instead of red paint.

oops our team accidental used duct tape for our numbers on our cardboard side plate at one of those local competitions when our driver went crazy and shattered the lex-an plate in 1000 little bits (good job John)!:ahh: :ahh: :ahh:

Ps- the judges told us we needed our number on the robot so o well

Gaff is quite gorgeous, don’t get me wrong. But I must say, if i remember right from doing some stage crew, it can get expensive… if I remember right (been a few yrs here) sigh it’s duct tape all the way! thoughthmm… I wonder if I can get away with somehow incorporating it into the team uniform…/thought
hehe

i think the numbers are considered decorations so i think you can use anything you want…as long as it meets the requirements for the numbers…

How did u shatter lexan? Are you sure it wasn’t acrylic? Lexan is REALLY hard to break in my expereience…
