you can make an appeal under almost any condidtion as long as yuo havn't removed ur car from impound. Just talk to your coaches-or if they saw it, have them go and get an appeal form. For Scrambler we appealed along with Eagle Hill(we lost) because Wellwoods coaches saw it and knew the same thing happend to Eagle Hill so we talked to them and the coaches decided to get a form and appeal.

It can be as permissive as "anything goes' to 'the judge's decision is final', absolutely no appeals allowed. As others have indicated, there is usually a fairly short time period during which appeals may be made concerning events at a tournament.
In your case, it's doubtful an appeal would have produced any results. While the floor surface was not optimum and not what you expected, it was the same for all contestants. The only remedy would be to throw out the entire event. Tournament committees are reluctant to do that unless teams experience significantly differing conditions.
There is a movement to allow appeals only for actions of the judges and to prohibit those concerning another team's actions. You could appeal that a judge didn't apply a rule evenly, but you couldn't appeal that another team's device didn't meet the rule.
