I have no idea what a bane bot is.
Banebots is a company that sells things like wheels and motors. Their wheels are a popular choice for events like this. They look like a black disk with blue, orange, or green rubber around the edge.
It's not that it's easier, we just didn't have any luck getting repeatable results when changing from one setting on the caliper to another. It could be that we didn't set it up originally for a caliper, and that once we reset it we had enough play in the way we attached the axle to the body that it didn't work. we only needed 3-4 thousands difference in the settings to change the arc form 12 meters to 9, so it was really hard to be that precise.
There are alternatives to adjusting only the axle to steer. For example, I've seen some teams, ours included, that use a caliper to change the length of one of the sides of the buggy. Although, I'm not sure if that would make the margins for steering larger in your case.
Also, what kind of a bonus are you able to get through by changing out the wheels?
