According to page 12 of the game manual: “The intent of testing compliance with this rule during inspection is to reduce the need for judgment calls during a Match. The 19” height restriction is not a “virtual ceiling”; for example, it is legal for a portion of the Robot to extend beyond the T-shaped VEX IQ markers while Hanging, so long as it never momentarily extends beyond 19” along the way. If a Head Referee is unsure of a Robot’s compliance with this rule, they may request a field-side height check for the configuration that was seen momentarily during the Match.”
So, if I build a robot that collects all balls into a bucket, then does a hanging on the high bar to raise itself, then extends its arm (beyond the 19" height) to dunk all the balls into the basket. Does it violate the rule?
