Intake help (flex wheels)

Does anyone have an idea if what a good lip for the bottom of the intake (angle of cimb) Me and my team are using polycarb, we are using a heat gun to bend the polycarb, and we would like some assistance from anyone who has also used bent polycarb intake.

I would suggest bending gradually sharper and testing until it works the way you want it to. Intakes are often finiky and getting yours to work as well as you want it to will require fine tuning. I know that in the past my teams have bent polycarb to 90 degrees over the space of a few inches (a relatively small radius), but due to the size of the game elements this year, I expect a shallower angle will be better in the end. Of course, conserving space is also useful. In short, trial and error is your friend.
