Dat chassis.

You said the shooter was powered by an RS550 in a Versaplanetary. Is that one motor total or four (one for each wheel)?

It looks like its a 2 wheeled shooter with 2 wheels stacked on top of each other at each location.

I should’ve specified in the description, but you are correct. The shooter is a 2 wheeled linear shooter with each wheel being 2 banebots wheels stacked on each other. The first set is the “primer” and runs 3:1 off a BAG in the VersaPlanetary, and the 2nd set is the main shooter wheel, which runs 1:1 off an RS 550 motor. We put it in a VersaPlanetary so we could attach the motor to the banebots wheels with ease and change the internal ratio if needed.
