we were recently trying to spin up our weapon when the bot was driving, in doing so the bot drive system would stop moving and the weapon would spin with out any issue, after looking at the speed controller settings i seen that the weapon was set to pull up to 70 % power from the batteries, i reset the power pull of the weapon to 40% and have not yet tested to see if the drive and weapon will run together, do you guys think that this will solve the issue of us being able to drive and run the weapon at the same time

P.S. the drive is only pulling at 25% power for each motor
