V5 Tower Takeover robot intake issues - Urgent help needed!

We are a rookie team and having issues with our intake design. We build the robot from the stack build instructions and started modifying it to fit the 18 inches length.

Unfortunately we have 2 major issues -

  1. The intake cannot pull the blocks in easily and it pulls only 2 blocks onto the slide.
  2. When coming to the vertical position, the slide sometimes gets stuck in the intake and breaks the gear links.

also you could ha e your intakes on hinges that fold out or narrow the tray in the bottom half to fit between the intakes.
