I'd like to start off this hulk by telling the story of the Vivisector. Originally, It was but a giant, 60 shot wheel. Then, I got the idea to make it back mounted. I built a casing that wasn't nearly strong enough. I built another. And another. I ended up wasting an enormous amount of my pieces on the shell. But here it is, in all its glory - the Vivisector.
This Instruction will be in 9 parts - The Wheel, The Bullets, The Motor Cage, The Back, The Base, The Sides, The Front, The Top, and The Attachments.

Step 2: The Wheel I: the Core
Step 3: The Wheel II: the Spokes
2: Build 64. These are singles
3: Build 24. These are doubles.
Connect singles to 1,2,4,6 and 8,9,11, and 13 (Grey facing towards center)
1,8 2,9 4,11 and 6,13 are all pairs.
Connect doubles to 3,5,7 and the other sides to 10, 12, and 14, respectively (Grey facing center)
Step 4: The Bullets
And 4 modded with grays and whites.
Arrange them like this
1mod - 14regular
Keep going and you'll have 4 of those.
Now, attach them in a huge long line.
Get the wheel out again and attach in the following formation. Attach the SECOND Bullet(The first is modded) to the very top - any of the top 8 spokes. Attach the others sequentially, but SKIP the Modded bullets. In the end, you have 56 attached, 4 free.
Make sure the side the bullet comes out of has the two spacers, and the other side has the 3 spacers and white connector.
Alright, the wheel is done. If you just want to build this, you're done too.
Step 5: The Motor Cage I: the Motors
Anyway, Build these and put them somewhere.
Step 6: The Motor Cage II: the Shell
Step 7: The Motor Cage III: the Middle Gears
Step 8: The Motor Cage IV: the Center

Then, add a blue spacer and Gray connector.
Add the Gears...

Build 8 of pic 7.
Then insert steps 10-12.
Step 14: The Back V: the Border 2
Step 15: The Back VI: Expanding Borders 3
Build pic 11.

And at the bottom, reds too.
Step 28: The Front IX: the Borders 4,5,6, and 7
Step 29: The Front X: Bonus Panels
...Or don't add them at all. They're there just 'cause they look cool.
Step 30: The In-Between Top II
Step 31: Assembly
Step 32: The Wiring
