#49270 Homemades Picture Thread

Posted by Viper on 10 March 2005 - 05:31 PM in Homemades

I can give you a website to put them on. Good idea bolt, I can't believe noone has ever made a topic for homemade pics. Someone find a pic of the best and put it on here.



#61904 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 14 August 2005 - 01:12 AM in Off Topic

I just added my laptop (1.4GHZ). Now what if we got each member to donate $5 of so via paypal to buy more computers to fold? Anywho I'm gonna try to advertise via my shipments from now on and on my nerf store.

I got only 1 CPU and I'm like in the middle of the nerfhaven pack.

I'm on now, my virus software keeps on bugging me about the folding@home program for whatever reason.

I'm trying to get Western michigan onboard, but have so far become unsuccessful. I'll hopefully be adding another processor soon. We're still gaining and our rank will increase but many teams are starting to pass us up too.

So what processor you guys think folding@home gets the most processing power out of? The powerpcs?



#62524 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 25 August 2005 - 12:50 AM in Off Topic

I only have 1 PC, but its an AMD 2800+. How do you put multiple processors on one account? I have my laptop on team 45293 but it says even though I have the same username that I used on my comp. That's insane that I'm already in 11th place even though I have 1 processor and haven't been folding for too long.

Did you guys see where Protease inhibitors which have almost cured HIV, except that HIV-A3 strand and Viagara was also developed using folding@home information. PEOPLE GET MORE COMPS. I'm gonna try and get Western Michigan to use folding@home.



#62875 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 01 September 2005 - 05:03 PM in Off Topic

I've been sending email after email for Wester Michigan University to get involved in the project but they seem to have little interest. I already mentioned our areas struggling economy that yo-yo's with manufacturers layoff's in down economic times and how interest in biotech resulting from a relationship with stanford's folding@home project would change Kalamazoo's economic landscape for the far better. I mentioned a ton of other advantages in just about every area inlcuding the fact that it would cost the university nothing compared to what it costs to run the blow-dryers and microwaves in every dorm. I'm going to talk to my Biology of cells and molecules teacher to see what he says about it and see if I can leverage his power to change the university's policy and that I could install the program on all of WMU's computers. Any other ideas besides the fact I also showed them how a group of less than 1/100th computers can pass up harvard?



#62760 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 30 August 2005 - 02:32 AM in Off Topic

I fnished a 2600 frame WU about as quick as a 600 frame. Stay with that WU, you'll get many points.


WOOOOHOOOOOO boyz, we're in the top 1000 teams!!



#62589 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 27 August 2005 - 12:52 AM in Off Topic

Nevermind it showed up. I'm quite certain it was 2600 frames, dude. My new WU is 250 frames on my laptop, so I guess it evens out.



#62572 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 26 August 2005 - 02:50 PM in Off Topic

I just finished a 2600frame WU under the username Viper and the team # 45293, yet on the team page it won't show my added WU.

Posted by Viper on 07 July 2005 - 12:27 AM in Off Topic

I've downloaded it and its running. How do I get to join your team though?



#67137 Nerfers Nerfing Disease

Posted by Viper on 05 November 2005 - 03:41 AM in Off Topic

I just want to thank earl the bunny,boltsniper, and snaped for sticking with us and putting up good numbers while many remain inactive and have since stopped folding. We only have 27 active members guys, so I am certain that nerfhaven has a ton more potential than we are currently tapping.

I need some good advice on how to build a diskless node.



#46239 Maveric Rev-6 Mod

Posted by Viper on 17 January 2005 - 11:36 AM in Modifications

Great job FIDO!!! 40 feet flat is on par with the powerclip, which gets about 80 feet max. That's not to shabby for a pistol w/ 6 shots.



#48726 Maveric Rev-6 Mod

Posted by Viper on 05 March 2005 - 12:23 AM in Modifications

Cxwq, that's one of the funniest things I've ever seen posted here. 70' flat? Maybe if you have metal reinforcement and a butane propulsion system replacement I don't see that happening. Just to give an idea of how far that is, that gets similiar distances to cxwq's modded EAB and I seriously doubt with a plunger as big as an EAB and a unique spring mod that cxwq thought up that a mav, no matter how heavily modded, could challenge that. I'm not so sure a NF can get a legit 70' consistently.



#46267 Maveric Rev-6 Mod

Posted by Viper on 18 January 2005 - 06:29 PM in Modifications

I said 40 feet on par with powerclip(straight), 80 feet max is obviously angled. Nerfcenter has 78 feet max on their review. Trust me it really gets about 85 feet max on average when angled(max). I just got done testing the maverick and it gets 30.7 feet unmodded when slightly angled, which is restricted by my basement sealing. I had about 2 shots in the series before(not averaged in) that hit the wall at 36 feet, therefore concluding it to be able to to shoot further than 36 feet max. Its practical range is probably about 25 feet. Its already beyond the rachetblast,even unmodded. Angled it got about 65 feet, but thats behind a very strong wind. I'd say maybe 40-45 feet max angled.



#46298 Maveric Rev-6 Mod

Posted by Viper on 19 January 2005 - 04:19 PM in Modifications

2mm craft sheet ompa. 3mm is gives to much resistance. Its design is very inefficient, I'l try to look for some orings.



#46276 Maveric Rev-6 Mod

Posted by Viper on 18 January 2005 - 09:12 PM in Modifications

Ompa made some very good points. I think the nozzle is way too wide for the revolver's back air hole, maybe using craft foam around the surface would do both to make a better seal and constrict the hole.

cool... i can see you took some time on it.



#53392 List Of All Guns Ever Made

Posted by Viper on 24 April 2005 - 07:11 PM in General Nerf

I better compile one soon.


Note: you wouldn't have to the ebay guy "luckybadger" would you?



#52303 Fast-action Rifle Writeup And Plans

Posted by Viper on 11 April 2005 - 10:48 PM in Homemades

You should really consider taking that to a toy fair or presenting it to a venture capitalist of some sort. Remember Lonnie Johnson was an aerospace engineer and he caught attention with a plexiglass and PVC "supersoaker." Putting all other compliments aside, that is far and above 10x more professional than anything that's ever been posted on a nerf site EVER.



#37090 Semi-auto 2k Prototype-its A Start

Posted by Viper on 12 September 2004 - 09:20 PM in Modifications

Does anyone know of any better substitute for the rf20 bladder? Is that type of rubber hose redially available at hardware stores? I saw some washer tubing by the vinly tubing at aco, but I don't know if its characteristics are the same as the rf20/powerclip/wildfire/larami ballgun rubber tubing.



#303202 Orange Mod Works Kit Reviews

Posted by Viper on 11 August 2011 - 09:50 AM in General Nerf

Thats amazing good stuff prototyping and and all that are getting cheaper by the day.



#48608 Magazine-fed Fast-action Nerf Rifle

Posted by Viper on 03 March 2005 - 07:11 PM in Homemades

Wow boltsniper, That's years ahead of nerf and arguably the best homemade ever made. I don't know what to say. :cry:



#216217 Air Zone Arrow Storm

Where can I find one online? Couldn't find it at TRU website.



#61420 Arsenal Aprassial Thread

Posted by Viper on 08 August 2005 - 10:09 AM in General Nerf

Stomp Rocket
Coral Viper
Stinging Scarab?

These are the unknowns fro myour list.



#60921 Arsenal Aprassial Thread

Posted by Viper on 02 August 2005 - 01:13 PM in General Nerf

my arsenal

BTW- All those boxes are full of more nerf guns.



#60993 Arsenal Aprassial Thread

Posted by Viper on 02 August 2005 - 09:50 PM in General Nerf

Most of my arsenal, which is a little bigger than it was in the picture, is at my father's house in Indiana. I don't have the time to open up the boxes and take pics of them at the moment but I can tell you that I have all but a few of the nerf guns ever made and duplicates of them. I have 4 N-strike sets and about 10 at2ks or something like that and a bunch of other guns like LNL's,splitfire's, A-storm's, chainblazers,rototrack etc.



#81656 How To Send A Package Through Mail?

Posted by Viper on 10 May 2006 - 08:13 PM in Off Topic

I thought the online thing through USPS was a pain to get set up so I just either walk at my college down to the post office or drive down there when I'm at home.



#42462 Halo Shotgun

Posted by Viper on 25 November 2004 - 10:38 AM in Homemades

This gun is Really Cool ompa. I bow to you.



#43598 Halo Shotgun

Posted by Viper on 08 December 2004 - 11:16 PM in Homemades

You can get a blade at wal-mart for $16.26. Talons are almost $30. I've been brainstorming a clip mechanism myself, good luck with yours ompa.



#41283 N-strike Maverick

Posted by Viper on 09 November 2004 - 11:06 PM in General Nerf

Yes thank you. "bows"



#58932 Magnum Pistol (100 Feet)

Posted by Viper on 08 July 2005 - 11:41 PM in Modifications

A thick spring also helps out. High end Automatic electric airsoft guns don't exactly have a huge plunger tube but they do have a very high tension spring.



#47016 New Rifle In Its Infancy...

Posted by Viper on 08 February 2005 - 04:22 PM in Homemades

Brilliant truly brilliant, boltsniper. The one criticism I have is the use of the AR grip. Isn't putting an AR grip on a nerf gun like putting a club on a pinto? I'd save the grip for a real firearm or something. Granted it would be unique and very cool, but I feel for your wallet.



#47027 New Rifle In Its Infancy...

Posted by Viper on 08 February 2005 - 10:30 PM in Homemades

I see boltsniper. Good luck and all.



#59110 Defender T3 Mod (full Write Up And Pics)

Posted by Viper on 11 July 2005 - 11:34 PM in Modifications

Very thorough starbuck, that's the best mod/review of the DT3 to date easily. The Dt3 arrow launcher has far more mod potential than the BBB and many other toys that people still seem to prefer.



#85561 Co2 Powered Gun

Posted by Viper on 23 July 2006 - 05:00 PM in Homemades

Co2 is overkill in the nerf arena. I tried several concepts, they all worked, although suffered from breaking the darts in half and many times sending the weight of the dart into my drywall. I wouldn't reccomend co2 for nerf use as its a dirty and inconsistant power supply. It will make the darts fly, but I could just hook up my air compressor to shoot a nerf dart 400 feet if I wanted to.



#62617 The Ubs (universal Barrel System)

Posted by Viper on 27 August 2005 - 09:19 PM in Modifications

Wow that's quite original, having a multi-diameter barrel system that can be mass produced. I'm looking forward to future right-ups.



#62666 The Ubs (universal Barrel System)

Posted by Viper on 28 August 2005 - 05:14 PM in Modifications

99 cents per foot isn't that expensive. If you buy 10 feet of my PETG that's enough for 10 or 20 barrels. The Brass is 3-4x as expensive, but you don't need that much.
