Installing Fang ReVamped motors in a stock stryfe cage... (I have done

13 March 2019 - 11:36 AM

Hello all,

 

First time Stryfe modder here. After careful consideration, research, and gathering of materials, I was ready to start my first Stryfe mod. My plan is to do a full rewire to run off of a 2S lipo, with Fang Revamped motors and stock wheels and cage, as the lipo charger kind of took up the price portion that would otherwise have been for replacement wheels and cage. I began gutting the blaster, clearing out the battery compartment, removing the flywheels and removing the motors, etc. However, when I got to the stage of putting the new motors in, I discovered two things:

 

1. The stock cage has no screwholes and uses no screws. Therefore I cannt screw the Fang ReVamped's  in.

2. The Fangs are slightly wider than stock motors, so I cannot simply push them in for replacement.

 

I found this (https://www.youtube....h?v=clE3NPeXjhg from 2:28) helpful video, which said I have to dremel or sand out the motor slots in order for the new motors to fit. However, before I do irreversible things to my cage, I am looking for opinions. How have other people dealt with this before? Is dremeling or sanding the only way to go? Should I glue the Fangs in?

 

Thanks in advance.


[k25] vs [k26]? Not sure which to get.

04 March 2019 - 08:36 PM

Hi,

 

I am planning on buying my first set of upgraded springs from Out Of Darts. I have a few mods in mind, including the Clearshot(Stormfire) and the Kronos. I know the Kronos can take both springs, but I am not sure about the clearshot because the [k25] seems to be a bit wider in diameter then the [k26] and I don't know if the plunger tube will be too small. Anyone know whether or not the clearshot can fit a [k25]? 

 

Also, what are the differences between these two springs? I have looked around but can't seem to find any solid, simple information on the difference.

 

Thanks in advance.


Evader flywheels are sounding wrong... Help!

02 November 2018 - 10:41 AM

Hi,

I was playing around with my evader earlier and suddenly the flywheels started sounding wrong. I figured the batteries were low, as they would discharge even faster as they are 1.2 volt rechargeables, so I got out some charged ones, and the same thing happened. I figured maybe I needed the standard 1.5 volt alkalines, do I got some of those, and it was still sounding off. Basically what's happening is that when fully spinning, the sound coming from the flywheels is a lower note than before. After rotating the blaster a few times, I figured out that when the battery tray, which is in the left side of the blaster, is facing up, the flywheel sound normal, but if the blaster is in any other position it sounds lower. I have no idea what's happening and I'm worried as I recently got it brand new, and it was working fine til now.

Any suggestions/fixes are appreciated.

Thanks

Worth it to replace wheels/cage on a stryfe?

25 October 2018 - 04:46 PM

Hi,

 

I am currently planning for my first flywheel mod, on a stryfe. I am planning on going with a 2s lipo, battery indicator/alarm, 16 or 18 gauge wire (which is better?), Fang ReVAMPed 130 2s Neo motors, and some $2 clone switch. All of this (except the wire) would be bought from outofdarts.com. The total cost, including the stryfe, would be about 70-ish USD (including the charger as I do not have one yet). The last possible thing I could replace within the blaster are the flywheels and cage. What are the benefits/drawbacks of doing this? How will it affect performance? I would automatically get them if they were a bit cheaper, but they would bump the cost up to about 100 USD, which is quite a bit for my first mod. However, if they will have a dramatic affect on performance, I will take them. Which ones would you suggest?

 

Thanks in advance.


How to do a cheap(ish) upgrade on a stryfe? What to do? (I am a beginn

21 October 2018 - 09:32 PM

Hi

I want to do my first mod on a flywheel blaster, and I have selected the stryfe as I have heard great things about it. My main complaint is rev time and fall of on repeat shots, what would fix this? Also where do I buy materials and for how much? What battery upgrades are necessary? The list goes on and on... I do not have lots of money to spend on this right now, so the cheaper the option the better(obviously still being a worth while upgrade). I have heard good things about worker flywheel kits, but most of them are $50 plus. I found this one https://www.ebay.com...6.c100935.m2460for about $10 on eBay, and it says it's worker, does this look like a scam? Also I have heard about many different batteries, which ones would work well but still be wallet-friendly?

Thanks in advance.
