The best ways to achieve accuracy on a flywheel system are wheel balance, sturdy motor mounting, and dart guides. Spin isn't yet shown to really improve accuracy, despite some systems that introduce spin being more accurate that "traditional" methods (ie: DRS cage, which does all of the above *and then also* spins the dart; SCAR/ZLIN barrels which on limited investigation appear to function more because of the porting they provide than the rifling).

Here's the post Nickrarri made with his Snikkas cage and brassed Riot comparison. It's a semi-scientific study on canted versus non canted cages. The wheels were different, but both had brass guides and the same motors. Read his results here. https://www.reddit.c...ts_in_comments/
Using a Artifact Gold cage is going to require a brass guide. Otherwise, the darts whirlybird. The Red does not require this guide, it will shoot fine without it. The guide makes both cages achieve better groupings of darts. It's needed on the gold cage though.
Waffle darts almost always shoot straight with similar trajectories, so the increase in accuracy tends to be rather minimal.

I wired up a circuit with motor breaking and xp180's on 2S and took it out for a spin. As soon as i pressed that rev switch the sweet sweet purr of xp180's with well balanced flywheels and a metal cage flooded my ears. It was a subtle but loud and consistently high pitched sound. I loaded up an 18 dart mag with koosh and fired some off. Little did i know the true effectiveness and consistency the spin it put on the dart was, every single dart that left the blaster piddled out about 2m in front of me before resuming an erratic spinning motion that could only be described as what it would look like if papa-smurf were to attempt to excite the ladies after having one two many drinks at his 60th.
Enough said, the point I'm trying to get across is that this cage is terrible and hardly even usable and you should just go out and purchase yourself an artifact red cage and some hooligan fly-ass wheels and save yourself a whole lot of trouble.
