Hey maybe you can help me, my nerf rapid strike slows down wen i push the trigger and the push mechanism mows very slowly. Trigger motor gets only about 1,7V wen pushed trigger. So i disassembled everything and rewired without safety buttons, still the same. Changed bullet push motor still the same. 

Thanks for any help.

This isn't the place to ask this question. That said I assume that you replaced the motors, but not the thin stock wiring. If you are using bad batteries and/or wiring the voltage will sag significantly with better motors. Replace your wire with high guage wire, and use a lipo, or at minimum IMRs. The stock switches are also a problem, and if you do not resolder and rewire the fire control group wiring and have current flowing through the PCB traces you will have voltage drop as well. I recommend using Torukmakto's standard rapidstrike guide.

OP: Have you tried alternate battery packs (that you know work just fine) in order to eliminate the battery as the source of the problem?

All started wen bullet pusher stock and didn't return to its initial position. At first place i changed batteries to new energizers and nothing changed. I disassembled gun and i saw that package in witch was pusher motor is a bit deformed. Then i changed to new more  powerful motor witch operates at 6-9V, then pusher starts to move, but slowly. Then i desoldered everything and rewired without safety buttons. So now rollers spins fast, but as soon as i push trigger everything slows down, so i think that pusher toothed is missaligned and it is too hard to mowe.  

Well, thanks for help.

My son is happy that it in general shots.

Sounds like a short in the circuit based off the trigger press, I don't know a ton about rapidstrike internals, but if there is a electronic aspect to the trigger pull, try e-taping any solder points and see what happens, also check and make sure that none of your lead wires are kinked or bent really tight.
