Quick Stampede Rechargeable Battery Mini Write-up

09 September 2010 - 05:59 PM

I bought a Stampede the other day, and I'm lazy. I mean, I didn't even want to go buy D cells, I was so lazy. So, I thought of a quick, extremely simple modification that took me about 5 minutes once I had everything gathered together.


-Large Tamiya MALE type connector (found at just about any hobby shop)

-A battery of the proper voltage with a large Tamiya female type connector. (I used an 8.4V)

-(optional) an insulation of some kind (could be paper, foam.. anything to stop an undersized battery from rattling around)



-A clipping or cutting tool

-Soldering iron

Here are all of the necessary materials together with the gun

Start by removing the tabs and barriers inside of the battery box. The middle divider needs to be clipped, but the others come out easily if you unscrew the bottom of the battery box.

Posted Image

After establishing the positive and negative ends of both the battery box and the wires on your connector, solder the wires to their respective spots on the side of the battery box that enters the gun first.

Your battery should fit in, since the stampede has such a large battery box. If you find your battery does not have enough room, use a dremel to completely remove the middle divider.

Add some insulation if necessary.

And, the blaster should work, like so:

-Don't be a douchebag
-Thievery will result in permanent banning from all wars. You know who you are, and you are not welcome.
-Ensure that all of your darts are safe. This means no exposed metal or sharply angled hot glue. If you're using heavy weight darts, try to keep distance from your targets.
-Eye protection is manditory
-#1 Rule: All participants must be having fun. If you are causing other people to have a bad time, you will be warned, and then removed from play.

Other information:

There are a few places nearby to get food, but I recommend that you bring a lunch.
Please bring at least 100 darts. Don't show up to the war expecting people to sell you some. If you need some, contact someone in advance.
We will be setting up some bunkers for the field. There are also some trails in the woods.

Please PM me with any questions you have.

How To Not Lose Fingers To A Longshot

28 May 2009 - 04:35 PM

Now, before you post about how this is stupid, and should be in the mod/pj thread, read this.

With all of these reports of singled LSs almost (or in some cases actually) disabled peoples fingers, I knew I wanted to mod mine to not do that before it happened to me. I can think of no better way to end an awesome Nerf war, than to have the paramedics come, because my singled LS took off my finger.

The mod in it's self is simple, but it will save your fingers for another day. It's just a slot for the handle to rest in at the back of it's pull.

And here it is primed and locked:

The results were good, and the handle did not come flying forward, like it normally would. It unprimed its self, but did not move. Although you have to re-prime the gun if the catch accidentally fails, at least you don't have to re-attach your fingers

Posted too soon. I still agree with Angel, though.

Range Estimators Listen Up!

02 February 2009 - 03:53 PM

I've noticed that a lot of people estimate ranges, mostly because a 100' measuring tape is not a common household item. And while estimating ranges may calm the constant posts saying "Ranges?" it will not accomplish the important bit: finding your gun's range. This is just one of many alternatives to a 100' tape.

While you may not have a 100' tape or a measuring wheel, you most likely have a bike. Go fetch it.

Posted Image

Attach something that will be easy to see as it goes by to the wheel. I used bright orange electric tape.

Posted Image

Now measure the circumference of the wheel. If you don't have a measuring tape, use string, then measure it on a standard 12" ruler.

Posted Image

Mine is 5' and 2".

Now go to a flat area, fire your gun, and slowly roll the bike to the spot the dart(s) landed, counting the number of times the marker that you used went by. Then take that number and multiply it by your circumference, and your will have decent approximate ranges.

Thanks for reading!
