An important concept to understand when designing a shooter is that the game piece will generally shoot better the longer the amount of time that it is being accelerated. For this reason, this mechanism uses two motors, both on 1:1 ratios. Each motor directly drives one grip wheel. The first wheel accelerates the ring to a certain speed, and the second motor accelerates the ring from that speed to a very fast final speed. To add weight to the fly wheel 86 Tooth Metal Gears were inset to the wheel allowing it to keep inertia when it was in contact with a ring.
