Question about sizing

If I spin the tank treads in a way where the rubber fins I have attached extend forward, it exceeds the 18” limit. If I spin the treads so that the fins are off to the side, then the robot would stay within the constraints. Would it pass inspection?
FYI the tank treads would spin using a controller and motor, not by a passive mechanism.

If you can reliably put the fins inside of the sizing limit without having the motors powered, then it will pass inspection.

This is not a good strategy though. If you have a problem elsewhere on the robot, it could suddenly not fit in size very easily. Likewise, a small change might put it outside the size limit.
