Found this at an ACME for 7 bucks today, and with no other write-ups for it (as of what I can find), here is the write-up for the Banzai Super Strike.

First, let's look at the blaster.

Open the blaster with a slightly larger than average Phillips (meaning, just a bit bigger than Nerf screws). There are 9 screws, 3 on the priming mechanism and 6 on the body (one under the the priming mechanism).

The internals, all you really need is the turret which just slides out easily.

Next, remove all 6 air restrictors from the turret. I used a pocket knife, but a drill or dremel would work just fine. All there really is are just the air restrictor pegs.

Then reassemble and you're good to go. I did put three pennies behind the spring for more compression, but I may add more after I paint this blaster.
Stock with stock darts the blaster got about 15-20 feet. Modified it got 25-30. Buzzbee Darts work really well and can achieve up to 35ft. I bet with a spring replacement and more pennies would cause for much better ranges, but I only had 3 pennies in my wallet and do not have any extra springs. Streamlines range from 20-35ft, they're Streamlines. Whistlers about 25ft. Nerf Suctions went roughly 20ft, maybe 25. Again, with a better spring and more pennies, this may get some decent ranges.

This looks very similar to the Maverick. It appears to get the same ranges as well. Have you thought about adding craft foam or some other material to seal the turret? Or is the seal already decent enough?

Nice, concise write-up. Good work.

Xellah, it does get similar ranges to a Maverick and this is probably a Maverick variant. And I am on a college campus at the moment so I do not have all my modding supplies with me. I could probably improve the seal some. All it is really is a spring and some kind of a rubber/flimsy pad thing. I will have to check that out when I got home and fully disassembled. When I get the seal worked on, if it needs worked on, and the blaster painted, pictures and how to do's will be added to the original post.
