Two sets of different colored wire
Electrical tape or heat shrink
This is in no way my original mod. It is simply a broken down write up of coops video tutorial.
1: Well of course first start off with your new rayven, open up that pretty box and prepare for mayhem.
2: Once open remove all the screws and put them aside. I've found layin a small piece of tape to put the screws on is really convenient.
3: Gently pry apart your blaster. Take note that near the handle in the bottom of the thumb hole it sticks so be gentle and slide something in. Once apart lay the side of the shell containing nothing aside.
4: Next will be the removal of unnecessary electrical locks and wiring. I will only be keeping the rev switch so if you like your locks. Ignore this step. Slowly beginning with the jam door lock pull the wiring circuit up out of the blaster. Once you hit the battery area you will need your soldering tool to remove the wires soldered there.
Soldering tool to melt these loose.
Should look something like this whe you're done.
Once I had that done I went up to the motors. You will motive two yellow things running across each motor.
Go ahead and snip those out carefully. They are basically like air restrictors for the motors. It weakens the amount of current able to pass to your motors.
Now that that's done head down to your trigger area and make your final snip by the rev switch. Leave yourself a little wire though to work with.
And that does it for removing the unnecessary wires. You should have a pile of wires that look like this.
And a blaster that looks like this.
5: Now is the time you will need to get out your different colored wires, different so you can tell positive from negative and we will begin replacing the circuit we just cut out. You always want to have to much wire opposed to to little.
You will want to cut a small piece to streach from the left leads on your motors, this will need to be the color wire you are indicating as positive. In my case yellow.
Once cut to the appropriate length strip both ens of the wire along with a small space in the middle of the wire that we will need later. Then once your ready solder like so.
Now cut your negative wire the same and repeat on the opposite side.
6: At this point your blaster should hopefully resemble this.
You are now ready to start running your positive and negative wires through the blaster. I started with positive leaving the motor from the positive side like so. I wrapped mine with electrical tape to keep it from touching anything.
And then attach your negative wire.
7: time to begin routing your wires. Take the positive and run it like so.
And run your negative like this to one side of the switch.
The run the remaining bit of wire fro the othe side of the switch to you negative battery terminal like so. And your circuit is complete and your rayven is ready to go!
Now I will also show how to remove the mechanical trigger and clip lock. Simply remove these two screws by the trigger.
Remove this nub from the spring loaded piece behind the trigger and replace it all.
Now move to the rear of the blaster and locate this screw.
Then completely remove and throw away what it holds in.
Close up your blaster and if everything was performed correctly you should be able to well still turn on the blaster, and also pull the trigger or open the jam door whenever you want. Before someone says something, yes I know removing the restrictors and thermostat and flux capacitor and whatever else lol, can cause harm to the motors, but seriously that woul take someone holding that rev trigger for like 10min and if you do that you deserve to have it fry. Look for more add ons to this rayven! I actually have a lot planned for it.
