Problems with VEX Iq slapshot 2022

Has anyone else had issues with shooting the new slapshot robot? my team is any tips on how to fix it.

Welcome to the forums.

By the “new slapshot robot” I assume you’re referring to the pre-designed “trainer” build (the so-called Hero-bot). Keep in mind that these pre-designed trainer-builds represent generally good-quality building techniques (especially the “V5 Clawbot”) so you can learn the VEX building system. Each season, a new pre-designed game-specific trainer is offered (this year it is called Disco) to provide a starting point for teams to compete in early competition: typically a robot with good build quality but deliberately mediocre game performance. Once you have become familiar with the VEX building system, you can begin to look at pictures, youtube videos, game reveals, etc, for inspiration, then work through the engineering design process to build your own unique mechanism.

VEX has a great resource for beginning teams to learn the design process and how to make decisions. Take a look here, and especially look at the “engineering” section to see how experienced teams have worked through making their design decisions: https://kb.roboticseducation.org/hc/en-us/articles/8373753632407-Students-Start-Here 1
