What's teh range of the Rototrack?I might be interested.
That's me actually and it will shoot farther than my modded x-bow, bceause its spring got replaced by an aco hardware spring and its modded to shoot micros.I drilled holes in the back of the chain also. I haven't brassed my modded xbow yet, but it still gets 97 feet max. You could try buying it and find out for yourself if you'd like. They are crayola barrels w/ tape on the back to seal them in well. It is very accurate, though it does shoot high( like a brassed arrowstorm does) and the crayola barrels can be taken out with pliers fairly quickly. My sold modded xbow got 120ft w/ arrows but I sold that like a few years ago after the plunger seal stretched and busted due to the stress ( I also broke the cocking mechanism)IN that case I just did the Stephen Mohr mod,taped up a better seal for the plunger and added a REALLY tense peice of surgical tubing. When I was little I used to use that modded xbow to shoot at birds around my neighborhood. I got one every so often, still I shot a few birds w/ a nerf gun.

Viper-Sounds good but sadly I'm broke.Good job with the mod though.

he said it does, although later stated that it is 85 feet angled, unless that is the XBow he's talking about. So don't just go with what other people have said, experiment with stuff yourself. Now I'm off to go shoot skeet with my 2500 foot-per-second shooting BnA.
102 feet angled, which isn't that great,

Why thank you captainCC. 85 feet angled was the powerclip. If you go to nerfcenter it has powerclip max range at 78 feet. 102 feet angled was the rototrack which I Meantioned earlier. All clear???
I typed up a full response to all the crap your feeding us, and I deleted it all. All I need to say is this: You are not getting those ranges. All clear??? Yes, Im a stubborn ass. Your going to meet many of us in life, so I suggest you become accustomed to us before it matters.
A new spring, and crayola barrels? A new spring doesnt make much of a difference, and crayola barrels are just sloppy. Also, by drilling out the links, its making the seal worse.

Not true, if the holes are drilled to the same size as, for lack of a better word, the "barrel" it will increase the range.

If you used a spring that was titanium and 4x as thick, your shell would be lacking integrity. Did you measure flat ranges? Because those are not rediculous for angled. Drilling the hole in the chain, allows more air to leak, unless it is done perfectly to the barrel. Also it may not be transfered in the way you drilled, I am not sure since I have never examined a rototrack. Crayola barrels are very short and don't provide good accuracy. Plastic is not self-lubricating, hence the reason Hasbro lubricates plungers, as well as we do and we lubricate barrels. Again, plastic is NOT self-lubricating. Where soes everyone come up with these crazy ideas?
eeech... I got a few for me and a few against. Somehow the fact that a crayola barrel modded track gets almost 90 feet angled doesn't cross their minds. 12 more feet was added on by the spring. How do you know thirst? How do you know I didn't add on a titanium spring that was 4x as thick? based on my given information, you can't assume for certain I achieved or didn't achieve these distances. How does drilling a hole make the seal worse? How are crayola barrels sloppy? If you bore them out you have a plastic barrel and plastic is self-luricating unlike brass, so the resistance is less coming out of the barrel.

This would probably, just maybe, not work. I highly doubt you could cock it if you did then. And if you actually could cock and fire it, the gun would probably, oh, i dunno, shatter when the plunger cap hits the end of the plunger.
How do you know I didn't add on a titanium spring that was 4x as thick?
