#348687 Zeus Hopper

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 08 September 2015 - 11:22 PM in Modifications

I will sell you the blaster for its retail value plus shipping. Give me a little while longer to make sure its not going to break again. Im planning on using it at a war.

#348603 Zeus Hopper

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 31 August 2015 - 11:10 PM in Modifications

It might take me 3-4 weeks before I could make a how to... I personally do not like the hopper, its just too damn big. When I designed it, I intended to use a straight tube that held 10 rounds or so with a funnel on the top to fill it fast. I guess if i had 10 packs of ammo to fill the hopper it would make up for the obstruction and goofy feel of the hopper.

Ive got something weird going on tomorrow, let me see if Im going to have enough time to take it apart and get more pics. I could be convinced to send you this one and then build another when I have time.

#348548 [OH] C.A.N.E. Presents B.O.G.

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 27 August 2015 - 09:37 PM in Nerf Wars

I would come, but I'd rather not seeing as you're using only FVJ's. Those leave welts at 120 FPS, let alone 250. Sorry, but safety is more important than cost. I suggest using Voberry darts for a good combination of safety and cost.



Really? you would come but......... sounds like a cop out to me, This is the best group I have ever nerfed with, they are providing darts, a wicked location and almost all of them bring additional players who don't or cannot drive... And you are gonna puss out because they aren't using the darts you prefer? SMDH.

I can hit a Father Time Size target at 60ft.



#341510 SPINMASTER O9K (stryfe)

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 24 August 2014 - 10:08 PM in Modifications

I do not care about ranges. its is a viable primary in any stock dart war. If you care about ranges that much don't use a flywheel blaster.



#341507 SPINMASTER O9K (stryfe)

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 24 August 2014 - 09:38 PM in Modifications

No, Im not dead.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I created the motor mounts out of 3/4in PETG. I aligned the motors using an old xmod 130 can by snapping it into the stock location and then holding the 280s on the opposite side of the cage and hot gluing the PETG to the cage.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Shell mods were as simple as drilling 2 holes for the motors, drilling holes for the wiring to reach into the battery compartment and drilling holes for the relay in the battery cover. I gutted the inside of the battery compartment to make closing the cover easier. otherwise it took 10min of twisting wires so they did not get pinched and hold it open. The mods to the inside of the battery case are sub par and will not be shown for fear of embarrassment. All wiring was routed to the battery case so any problems should be accessible with a single screw. The relay is a $10 Autozone window motor relay (i believe) I can get a part number if anyone needs it. Just ask for a 4 pin rectangular accessory relay.

She buttoned up real nice. i already had to open it and resolder one connection to the relay.

#338218 Stockade... The NEXT level in flywheel blasters.

Im Dead Center between Cleveland and Columbus on I71



#338214 Stockade... The NEXT level in flywheel blasters.

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 13 April 2014 - 03:50 AM in Modifications

Actually superleggera although meaning super light, did not mean the car was actually lighter than its original counterpart. They were all basically racecars that the manufacturer put the largest engine they could fit into a chassis and then removed anything that was not necessary to make the car driveable.

Im using Mabuchi RC-280SA-2485.

I have no one to assist me in my area and every time I reach out to other nerfers for help I get shit on. I don't have a chronograph and everyone who does have a chronograph has already decided what motors are best and have no interest in anything different.

here is a quick vid. this is max rpm with just a tiny blip. Im running a 3s li-po pack because I accidently left my trustfires at Twitch's house over the weekend. I have a 3 18650 Li-Ion cells that I intend to integrate into the shell and make it pretty when I get more time. I just wanted to get some data out there hoping maybe I could get someone to try a set of 280s and collaborate with me on my project.

Thank you
Don

The aftermath
Posted Image

Blue rings are after FIRST (10shots) test firing, I never fired this blaster once. When I saw what motors they had in them I immediatly started looking for one, it took almost 2 weeks and I went to 17 different walmart stores. I took the blaster apart the second I got it home. It took me another 2 weeks to find the motors I wanted. I put the project on hold to nerf in Cinci last weekend and gave away all my motors while down there, building the first superleggera for Twitch. His looks completely stock.

Posted Image

I do not have a lot of pics yet... it will come apart and go back together a few more times while I tinker.

here is my experimental trigger setup... it works better than expected so now I have to take it apart and wire it permanent.

Enjoy peeps!

#337241 99 cent rapidstrike mod. (Caution, requires effort)

I build my own packs usually. for my RC stuff I get my packs from dx or hk.



#336936 Pinion Removal Tool.

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 08 February 2014 - 11:06 PM in Modifications

Posted ImagePosted Image

this is the ONLY way to remove a metal press fit pinion.
no prying, no heating and no cutting. we all have communities someone in your group needs to buy one...

Also try asking whomever you are buying your motors from to remove the pinons. alot of the ebay guys would be happy to. Ive pulled many pinions for people before I shipped. they let me keep the pinons so I dont even charge.

#336934 Front grip mod for Stryfe. (and others)

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 08 February 2014 - 08:50 PM in Modifications

Are any rail accessories necessary for a toy gun?



#336932 Front grip mod for Stryfe. (and others)

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 08 February 2014 - 08:36 PM in Modifications

Just a razor saw and some hotglue and I transform the front grip to something that looks better and feel sturdier. Im willing to bet some 18k psi epoxy would make it bulletproof.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I just trimmed away some of the orange so the grip fit against the shell nice and tight, maybe 0.15 between the grip and the blue plastic shell.

#336765 99 cent rapidstrike mod. (Caution, requires effort)

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 31 January 2014 - 05:50 AM in Modifications

I dont normally recomend lithium batteries for anything unless I know the person and their skill level. Lithium batteries are real easy to ruin if you do not care for them and respect them. If you have a hobby grade charger or know enough about what you are doing to find a proper 3 cell charger, this is the cheapest and in my opinion best way to up the voltage on a battery powered blaster. Im using 3 cells(3s) in series for 11.1v you could use 4s(14.8) with just a little more modding.I bought a laptop battery at goodwill for $0.99 it had 8 cells in it (2 were bad), I have solder and equipment. I used wires from an old computer power supply because I have 10-12 laying around (dont ask). It took me a whole 20min is rough up the ends of the cells tin them and solder them into the rapidstrike battery pack.

Posted Image

If you want to try this the best thing to do is take a volt meter to the goodwill and check battery packs. some packs you can test every cell from the outside and some you cannot. I know its a gamble but if you get really lucky you can find a 100% good battery and sell it on ebay for $50+. Worst case scenario you waste a dollar or two. never buy a battery pack that has a zero voltage reading. I try to figure out how many cells it sould have in it and watch for average voltages of about 3.4-3.6v per cell. I have bought a LOT of laptop batteries to power my various RC creations. http://www.hobbico.c...s/hcap0290.html this is the charger I use and IMO the best charger available for doing ghetto work like this.

Ill try to get into the old nerfchat channel more, Im currently working 11:30am to 8pm but in spring ill be working 7:30am to 3pm

#336746 GREETINGS PROGRAMS

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 29 January 2014 - 07:30 PM in General Nerf

Hey gang, it's been awhile. Im not dead or retired, just lazy.
Ive still been modding even though I have not posted in years and I do read.

I have a new job, with some expendable income. Holidays and vacations come with the new job so watch for me at a nerf war near you. I can also access nerfhaven from work.

My previous job ruined my social life and destroyed all my ambition to do anything other than sleep and eat. It was a rough time.

My nerf collection has tripled since last I talked to most people in the NIC, I just started trying to pick up some new flywheel blasters because I feel my background
in RC and slotcars will allow me to make a few fun projects. Try to find me on facebook if you are interested in motors because I literally have bags and bags of different motors
along with the equipment to balance motors or even custom wind armatures. I picked up a large upright bandsaw, another drill press and some milling equipment which I cannot wait to experiment with.

Ive been interested in attending a mod party or two. Id be happy to drag my dremil mill to let people mess with it.

later
Don

#314780 Hasbro harassing Urban Taggers

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 24 April 2012 - 10:10 PM in General Nerf

To be fair, though, most of us aren't writing masturbatory fan fiction about Nerf guns and drawing pictures of Raiders being "rear-loaded."

But I do, so.


And Ice Nine is the man to talk to if you have questions about rear loading.



This amuses me endlessly, Can you possibly get more publicity for less effort than having some ginormous corporation try to sue you for something you have virtually no control over?

#307602 Motor stats

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 21 November 2011 - 12:00 AM in Modifications

Don't even bother with any RC motors from toys. you wanna do it right. get me a pic of your stock motors and Ill tell you what you need and where to get them.



#307483 Motor stats

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 17 November 2011 - 07:58 PM in Modifications

you need to decide how large of motors you want, how much power you need and how many rpms you will need.

then you need to figure out voltages, amperage and size of battery.

Tell me what size motors you want and how many rpms they need to spin and I will get motors for you.

#306704 Supermaxx 1000 Tank Repair

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 30 October 2011 - 09:07 AM in Modifications

you can make "poor rednecks fiberglass" to repair lots of air tanks. just get epoxy with the brush and glue layer after layer of paper towel into a tank, its very strong.

#306237 Mallow Crossbow, only 1 part modified.

Posted by Mr BadWrench on 20 October 2011 - 02:29 PM in Modifications

No, I'm not dead or retired.

The last two wars I went to I had to sit out several rounds while repairing a blaster so I decided my next blaster will be a mod that can be transferred to a NIB blaster with as little trouble as I can figure. This is probably not going to be a primary but Its fun.

In theory I can pull a NIB mallow crossbow, take 8 screws out, add a tiny bit of rubber cement and be nerfing in 5min.

This is now what my workspace looks like, I lost my PC with all the podcasts and software on it but I have not given up..
Anyone who wants to help with the podcast contact me in the chatroom if you post here about the podcast or inconvenience the moderators at haven in anyway I will ban you from the chat and never let you on a podcast...

I'm looking for someone into Electrics and flywheel blasters for the next podcast. I have 3 write ups ready to drop and I wanna start a discussion about non nerf related podcasts and media. Back to work.

Im working basically a swing shift at Autozone now, I work whatever shifts no one else wants. I could not get permission to have a Rainbow war at the usual place this weekend but I've been considering doing one in September.
