The same item is used for every team. well not the same item, but the same kind of item with the same dimensions. (ex: if you are given a 20g bolt, every other team is given a 20g bolt). and you cannot damage the item. Also, you cant tape it or anything. which makes the challenge more difficult. it has to be easily removed from the model.
An example: we got a large bolt for our first comp, we put it in the place of a washer that was holding the scale plate together...if that makes sense. we TIED it to the model. thats a good way to get around the "no tape" rule.
