Both robots have to be in the starting box at the start of the game. Is the green line part of the starting box? Or does everything have to be behind the vertical projection of the green line?

This kind of question is best asked on the Home Base FAQ. However, the starting box is bounded by the inside of the PVC and green tape.

I'm pretty sure the old Home Base for the 2008 season has a SolidWorks model of the XBC. If you don't have access to the 2008 Home Base, try contacting Matt Oelke at KIPR and he might be able to send you the file.
