If looking down on the robot, can any part of the robot be hanging off the quad as long as all 4 tires are on the quad?

The body of the robot must be on top of the Quad Platform. All tires/ tread must be on the Quad.
Attachments may extend beyond the surface of the Quad Platform.
If in the process of climbing, the robot tips on its side, or is lying on its top, as long as all the tires/tread are in the area of the Quad Platform (review Mission 6 Fuel Barrel for clarification of “in the area”) the referee will award a score.
if your robot is knocked off by another team, do you still get the points?
If the referee has determined that your robot was entirely on the Quad Platform, you will receive a score.
If the referee has determined that your robot was NOT entirely on the Quad Platform, you will not receive a score.
If multiple robots are attempting to climb on top of the Quad Platform at the same time, the robot(s) which successfully climb on top of the Quad Platform will receive a score.
If the action of your robot is impacted by another team’s robot already resting on the Quad Platform, the result of your robot’s action will determine whether you receive a score or not. In other words, if another robot is in the way, it would be your robot’s responsibility to move that robot out of the way to earn a score.
My students are wanting to build a type of ramp similar to medieval siege ramps. The ramp would start off in the safe zone. The robot would push it to the quad platform and then drive up it . Is thI’d legal
