1. Motors. Stock, do all of these blasters have the same motors? Which one has higher torque/RPM?
2. Flywheels. Rayven has heavier flywheels with a grip pattern, Stryfe has heavier, and Rapidstrike has slick light ones, correct? Any noticeable advantage to the Rayven's in performance or recovery time? Is Plasti-dipping them useful or no?
3. Resistance. The Stryfe can be simplified to an on/off switch, whereas the Rapidstrike has more guts. Which gun uses up more of its batteries' rating in the circuit? How much gets to the motors themselves?
Theoretically, would a Rapidstrike with Rayven flywheels, higher torque and RPM motors, a better power supply, and higher gauge connection wires be the ideal flywheel blaster? Or is a Stryfe just as good, just not full auto?
If so, how do I calculate the needed flywheel mass : motor torque : motor speed : battery voltage : battery amperage : battery C rating values? I don't want to fry my replacement motors- I'll top out at ~7 to 9 volts, depending on the circuit's long term tolerance.
Are there any other aspects to a flywheel blaster besides power supply, resistance of circuit, RPM, torque, and flywheel mass to consider?
EDIT FOR POSTERITY: Roommate at college is an EE. Got a crash course. I went with Xtreme Pro 180's, 18 AWG rewire, all switches replaced with high-current. 2S 50C burst 2200 mAh LiPo. Flywheels have sprayed plastidip, applied while the wheels run on a drill. 300 shots, no visible wear.
