Answered: 18"x18"x18" Starting Position with Pre-loaded tubes

On our robot, we have a part on a hinge that sticks out past 18 inches, but when we pre-load a single tube or more, it is no longer outside the 18" limitation. Is this legal or does the entire robot need to be contained within the 18" box without and pre-loaded tubes involved?
