Great distance, now just control the shot and you are golden!
There are EIGHT motors in the kit that are comparable to a CIM in this application.

Sorry to call you out specifically, but I keep reading this on chief over and over.

Keep your 4 CIMs in drive, and use several of our your EIGHT 200+ W motors on our your shooter.

And after you've used 4 CIMs, and 8 200+ W motors, you still have 10 other weak to powerful motors for other systems.

FIRST has given us the most leniant KOP in history, motor allocation is trivial this year.
