Vex U expansion Zone

In the rule book for the game it specifies in SG2a that robots can’t expand out of 18” with the expansion zone. For the vex U rule book the rules are the exact same unless stated otherwise and doesn’t specify a different expansion limit for that zone however, what happens if we have a robot built that is larger than 18” due to the different size specifications for Vex U? Is the robot still only allowed to be 180 tall for that zone?

That’s interesting to me as well. In NBN, the equivalent rule, quoted below, explicitly mentioned that the expansion restrictions applied to both with respect to their designated maximum sizes.

The bolded portion is notably absent in this year’s rule, so this likely will be a subject of a clarification in a subsequent game manual update.
