How to improve turning with mechanum wheels?

Is there any way to improve the turning on a mechanum drivetrain? The turning on my teams bot isn’t especially consistent or smooth and I’m wondering if we can do anything about it.

Can you post the drive code? Maybe upload a video of it turning to YouTube and post the link here so we can see? And how exactly is it not consistent can you be a bit more specific?

adding on, i need to see the code/drive before anything certain can be diagnosed. what i will say is, because of the nature of mecanum wheels, a combination of friction and uncented cog can cause the turning to be weird

When using mecanum wheels, it is very important that the center of mass of the robot be exactly in the center of the drivetrain. Consider moving the battery and the Brain as needed to get the center of mass correct
