#321769 Where To Buy Modding Materials

Posted by Super0dp on 19 September 2012 - 08:14 AM in Modifications

Just found something awesome. The best PETG i found was sold by Fa24 and his website. he also has amazing glue dome weights and foam. Amazon is the best place i found that you can get brass from. The price ranges from 5 dollars to 12 dollars for 3 feet of a size. 9/16 is a little on the high side and 17/32 is reasonably cheap. im not trying to endorse Fa24 or Amazon, im just throwing some info out there.

Edit: yea sorry for talking about amazon again even though its in the forum already. but the prices were not talked about and so that is a good piece of info.



#329060 The BEST upgrade motor for the Stryfe (after extensive testing) is...

Posted by Super0dp on 26 April 2013 - 05:54 PM in Modifications

I'm looking for some higher quality Tamiya's to do some testing,


Tamya Plasma dash motors. SG nerf uses them to compare stock motors. I did a thread on them. Just search "Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions"
They are very good, I use them I'n my barricades. I run 9v on them and they work fine and have been for over 2 months now.



#329056 The BEST upgrade motor for the Stryfe (after extensive testing) is...

Posted by Super0dp on 26 April 2013 - 04:46 PM in Modifications

This is probably nigh on a necro but after having these motors die on me twice I had to ask. Has anyone else had a pair of these die after maybe 1-2 hours of total use? Both times I reopened my shell and tried spinning the flywheels just to see a huge amount of brush sparking through the endcap of the motors and maybe 50 RPM on the flywheels. I removed everything from the circuit but the rev switch and kept the stock 22 gauge wire. I ran them off of a 7.2V ni-cd pack most of the time and tested a 9.6V pack for a couple of minutes as well. I know nothing was burned out because I have since dropped stock motors again on the same wiring. After having the same thing happen twice I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just incredibly unlucky or if I've done something wrong both times.



The motors have "died" on me for several minutes on me after less than a minute of revving with three ultrafires and normal batteries, even with two dead batteries instead of the normal batteries it dies pretty fast. I have gone the route of one ultrafire and it works fine and I've kept it revving for a little under 5 minutes with no issues. How much use have your motors seen? Mine haven't seen that much.


This is most likely because the motors are brushed. We are putting these motors in situations never intended and they are burning out. If you can open the motor or find replacement brushes on the Internet you can fix them. All brushed motors were out at some point, these seam to wear out much faster than others.

Maybe 3 trust fires is too much? Maybe it is intended to run at stock voltage or a little more?



#327572 NDA Exclusive! New 2013 Nerf Mega Centurion

Posted by Super0dp on 03 March 2013 - 08:51 PM in General Nerf

You listed the price in British pounds. Does that mean it will not retail in the U.S.?
Also, at 1.5 meters long, that is awful lot of barrel drag affecting the dart. Will the barrel be tight?
About the plunger design, I think a bolt-action (similar to longshot and longstrike) will better suit modders and XBLA 12yr COD looozers.
Iron sights? Damn.



#329846 Latex Tubing Blaster

Posted by Super0dp on 15 May 2013 - 05:58 AM in Homemades

Damn,that thing is sweet
I know I am a little late to the game but I have some questions.

1. Write-up? You have made several improvements and I think all of us would like to see one.
2. Templates for the 3D printed parts? Files maybe?
3. What is the printer you are using to print the parts?
4. Could you tension the tubing more to produve better results?



#320095 Dartsmithing Tips Archive

Posted by Super0dp on 07 August 2012 - 04:26 PM in Darts and Barrels

Does anyone know we're to get red foam or silicone tips? I saw sgnerf's darts and I'm looking for the tips he uses.



#320944 Working Silencer

Posted by Super0dp on 24 August 2012 - 03:12 PM in Darts and Barrels

I have made a silencer on my co2 Titan, and a plugged Titan. I made a 14in cpvc barrell and cut holes going in a spiral along the last 4 inches. Silences it completely, adds a spin to the dart and increases range.



#328123 Understanding Air Guns

Posted by Super0dp on 17 March 2013 - 02:10 PM in Homemades

Very, very nice work. Air guns are not as well known in the community and now people can have more information on a very cool topic.
I think it should be sticky, Mods?



#324559 Rough Cut AR/peg removal

Posted by Super0dp on 18 December 2012 - 06:51 AM in Modifications

Should I boil the barrels before trying to pry them open?



#328256 Homemade flywheel gun

Posted by Super0dp on 21 March 2013 - 07:28 AM in Homemades

UPDATE

I have drawn up some concept sketches of how I think the design might go. The ring of pipes you can see will all hold dart tip-to-tail, like a hopper but bigger. This is obviously a very rough sketch, I made it just now.

Great, you made a PowerStrike 48
I advise you use a magazine instead of a turret like thing, makes reloading easier.
You could cut off the magwell of a recon/retaliator or a rampage to use.



#320282 Holsters

Posted by Super0dp on 10 August 2012 - 08:41 AM in General Nerf

Yep, and I've improved on the design. It works well enough I feel that it is very useful even though we all use hoppers and such.

Also, just posted a write up.



magnetic holsters are fine in all but for even cheeper you can use heat-bent pvc, just heat up a pot of water to a boil (it has to be a huge pot of water, atleast 8 in deep), cover the front shell of your blaster in silicone grease, dip the pvc in the water and form the pvc to the blaster. when its formed, dip the pvc, blaster and all into ice water. BOOM instant holster. you can drill holes into it and mount it however you like. i got this idea from a friend.

im freakin tired of the quote system messing up!



#320204 Holsters

Posted by Super0dp on 09 August 2012 - 06:54 AM in General Nerf

[
, leather sounds a bit over the top and expensive in my opinion, but will look into your other suggestions,.
[/quote]

I buy a pack of random leather strips from hobby lobby and weave my own holster, the bag of strips has enough for like 3 maverick sized guns and only costs 5 bucks. It's strong, flexible and it's fun to make.





The quote thing messed up, I'm still learning.



#329578 Dart-related Nerf war accidents and dart safety tests

Posted by Super0dp on 10 May 2013 - 05:54 AM in Darts and Barrels

I took a 1/4 slingshot weight to the leg at about 20 feet from a guy rushing with a shotgun couplerd Titan. 3 of the 4 barrels hit me but didn't hit bare skin and the 4th hit my leg. I had a welt and semi-major pain for a week.



#328255 Magstrike Air Tank Mod Revisited

Posted by Super0dp on 21 March 2013 - 07:22 AM in Modifications

I'm pretty sure that no HVZ organizations allow stefans, so if that is the case, hoppering it is pointless, because streamline darts do not work in hoppers.


You could build a tagger hopper. Or you could use an RSCB.
Both options have high RoF and are easy to reload.



#326133 Question to all you modders

Posted by Super0dp on 30 January 2013 - 01:30 PM in General Nerf

Thanks for the clarification - how would you folks go about opening up the Vortex range? What is it lacking? Did you folks like the Diatron internals? (Dual-disc technology)


In my opinion the diatom internals were terrible, only left handed priming and it was a massive pain to wield. To open the line up I think there should be a less clunky, less sucky full auto blaster. (the ntron was terrible) maybe a system like the praxis turned full auto?



#326029 Question to all you modders

Posted by Super0dp on 29 January 2013 - 01:32 PM in General Nerf

One blaster In particular. Hmmmmm

Stampede maybe?

And what Is this about a blackeye?



#325931 Question to all you modders

Posted by Super0dp on 27 January 2013 - 07:12 PM in General Nerf

I would like to see more airguns, and more clip-fed direct plunger blasters.

On a side note, I think there should be a full auto rife (much like the stampede) in the Elite line.



#328667 3D printed Wye with a Gentler Slope and a Dart Ramp

Posted by Super0dp on 10 April 2013 - 02:45 PM in Darts and Barrels

Mainly because N-strike/elite clips require breaches, which have a tendency to jam. A belt would allow a much higher number of darts to be carried than in any clip, and any type of dart to be used if the belt system was designed for it. If it was made into a loop, it'd also allow reloading on the fly; it'd basically just be a flexible turret.


If it is going to be like a turret then you are essentially making a chain-blazer. One disadvantage of using chains would be carrying capacity, if you have 3 chains of 100 rounds each (one in the blaster, two on your vest or belt) you would have chains swinging around and it would be heavy. Even if you compacted them they would take up a lot of space. With a hopper/RCSB you could have the same 300 darts is a pouch or bandolier that would be 1/2 the weight and you could shove darts in several at a time, rather than reloading a whole chain.

Now, because this thread was started on hoppers, I think we should post about the original subject, not on potential reloading mechanisms.
I like Slug's design with the sliver of plastic to direct the dart, but I think we can print it in 1 piece or mod current wyes with wire or zip tie.
If we are going to make custom wyes, why not incorporate special features. Instead of going from PVC to ramp, why not incorporate a funnel to take advantage of the Venturi effect?
Or make holders on the side for extra barrels so if one gets jammed, you can switch it fast and not worry about clearing the jam until you are in a safe zone or after the battle?



#328233 Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12 first look

Posted by Super0dp on 20 March 2013 - 01:16 PM in General Nerf

As much as the Retaliator is useful and simple, I much prefer an Alpha Trooper for the fact that it is pump-action. I don't care that it has a range reducing barrel, I prefer ergonomics when there is only a minimal difference in performance.
Cant wait till this comes to the U.S.
Zombies beware.........



#328003 Bullpup Stampede

Posted by Super0dp on 14 March 2013 - 05:31 PM in Modifications

This is really cool. You do a lot of cool things with stampedes.
Why would you use PVC to attach the handle instead of directly securing it to the shell or tac rail? I think this would save a lot of space and make it more compact.



#326726 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 12 February 2013 - 09:58 AM in General Nerf

Even though there will be different discs can we still buy the regular ones?
I like the idea of different discs, especially the way the Revonix has the multi-cylinder drum,
you could have the Ranger++ in one cylinder, the Quick Shot in another and the regular in the third.



#326569 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 09 February 2013 - 05:47 PM in General Nerf

I don't why everyone is bitching because these are really cool! Hell I would even buy them because a pink nerf gun would be sweet! I see some modding potential and I like how they look ergonomic and smooth.



#326687 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 11 February 2013 - 04:09 PM in General Nerf

I like how they are re-releasing the vortex blasters with the better paint style and the orange discs. Good stuff over all.
I wonder how the hammer-action pistol works.



#326691 Exclusive pics of new 2013 blasters and new ranges

Posted by Super0dp on 11 February 2013 - 04:30 PM in General Nerf

My theory is there are gears inside that the hammer turns as it's pulled down similar to the rough cut.


I think your mistaken, in the video the OP posted on his site the tester person pulled the hammer back, then pulled the trigger and fired a dart. there was no plunger priming or visual movement, just the hammer moving.

#322742 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 18 October 2012 - 11:16 AM in General Nerf

I found a motor for barricade/rayven/stockade blasters.The Tamiya plasma dash motor (The small one, Duh!) is a perfect fit with minimal trimming and is brushless. They are the kind of motors found in the Tamiya mini 4x4 things.



#322744 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 18 October 2012 - 11:42 AM in General Nerf

Holy shit, totally justified necro. Got a part number or a product link?


I dont have a part number but if you go to the Tamiya U.S. website you can find the mini 4x4 and the parts. I'm sure with 15 min of google searching you can find it. SGnerf at his website compares Nerf motors with this exact motor



#322821 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 20 October 2012 - 10:00 AM in General Nerf

Hamoidar has the right motor. Its the small black Tamyia plasma dash motor. For the mod I soldered the wires directly to the leads on the motor. They work really well and last a long time. Even with a voltage mod they will last and keep performing well. After several wars, battery changes and re-soldering they still work in my modified barricade.



#320943 Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions

Posted by Super0dp on 24 August 2012 - 02:39 PM in General Nerf

Alright, I recently got a stampede and tore it apart for parts. I was messing with the motor and took it apart and found it was brushed. That means that there are carbon-metal brushes that contact the armature. (the spiny thingy in the center) these brushes wear out overtime and you will have to replace your motor. If you have done a voltage mod this happens a lot faster. Brushed motors generate a lot of heat so be careful. My suggestion is to find a similarly sized motor that is brushless, and replace you existing motor. Brushless motors spin a lot faster so mor stress would be put on the gears. Also they take a lot less voltage to go fast so you can save some money on batteries. Hope this helps!

#321836 Screw Cap (a.k.a. Snap Cap) Dart Heads

Posted by Super0dp on 21 September 2012 - 08:13 AM in Darts and Barrels

Maybe shooting your friends with toxic heavy metals is a slight step backwards? Not to mention that everyone pretty much gave up on these.... In April. When they were shown to break apart on impact. And possibly injure people. WITHOUT ALSO GIVING THEM LEAD POISONING.


I understand were your comming from but for a person (me)who is serious and cant make a slug, or a hot glue dome to save his life, it is a safe way to get accurate, well made darts and with a little experimentation I can find a safe alternitave to a washer. as for the breaking problem I tried silicon to seal the dart head and after several shots from a 4b at a brick wall the head did not break. This was my experiment and results. I was hoping to revive this dart because this is a great alternitave to slugs, hotglue domes and pre-formed dart heads. In no way was I trying to hurt anyone or piss anyone off. i hope you can understand that. As for the dart I found a way to prevent it from breaking: Use silicon to seal the head on the inside.



#321768 Screw Cap (a.k.a. Snap Cap) Dart Heads

Posted by Super0dp on 19 September 2012 - 08:09 AM in Darts and Barrels

thanks. Also I found a lead washer that fits perfectly inside the snap-cap and has no metal exposed. Because it is lead you have to paint it or seal it. With the finished head: you can push down really hard when putting the head on and it will sink and seat into the foam better. just throwing some ideas i tested out there.

#330493 Columbus War 5.1 [OH]

Posted by Super0dp on 02 June 2013 - 04:55 PM in Nerf Wars

I am sorry to say that I have to change the date of the war. My flight was changed without notice and I'm unable to play on the 22nd. The war is now the 29th of June. The war date will not be modified again.


Damn, I cant make it now. The 22nd was right in between two trips I have planned. Sry :(



#330476 Columbus War 5.1 [OH]

Mark me down as Maybe.

Also, is a shotgun coupled Titan allowed? it has 4 barrels and has the stock OPRV intact.



#323384 Tee shirt launcher help.

Posted by Super0dp on 08 November 2012 - 09:58 AM in Off Topic

For Shiggles I made a tennis ball launcher out of 3 titan tanks. Hooked all three to a single pipe and made it front loading. Air compressor with a splitter to all three tanks and it shot tennis balls 150 feet flat. If you have the time and the resorces you could build one.

#331921 New Nerf Line?

Posted by Super0dp on 14 July 2013 - 06:39 PM in General Nerf

I don't know about you guys, but i'm buying the Rebelle version just because its pink. And Nerfing with it would be sweet...
Anyway the blasters has some potential but maybe seem worth it just for re-fitting internals into those cool shells. the springs look small enough to come buy at Lowes or whatever. Might sacrifice on the one-handed capability. The vortex pistols are Hasbro's last chance to push a small vortex blaster.

I see potential, but it may not be worth it.



#320131 Nerf Elite Retaliator problems, reviews and mods

Posted by Super0dp on 08 August 2012 - 07:17 AM in General Nerf

Ok so I have been having some problems with my retaliator lately, I bought a hail-fire and was messing with the 6 round clips and tried to fit it into my retaliator, but it wouldn't budge. I tried pulling the clip release to get it in but that didn't work. Only the original 6 round clips will fit into the retaliator. Has anyone else had this problem? Don't forget to post pictures and mods of your personal retaliator. pictures and mods go in the pictures and mods thread, not here.
