So, I’ve seen many people make ‘chinatakes’ : intakes that have a flap roller in the front and a non-flap roller on the back, with the front roller running faster than the back roller.
This is counter-intuitive to me.
I’m inclined to think that acceleration, which is inversely related to RPM, should be more important to the front roller than the back roller.
If the front roller were to run slower than the back roller, we would be able to quickly accelerate the game object at the front intake, and then, further ramp up the speed at the back roller.
So, why is it that, in a chinatake, the front roller is faster than the back roller?
Am I missing something here?
