View Full Version : Started my "The One" project...

05-01-2007, 08:56 AM
... and I think I pretty much know what I have to do. I'm just a little confused I guess.

Being that cash is running low again (why is there so much time between paychecks?) I ordered the ram and front block. They arrived today. I was a little confused because I'd been informed by HobHayward in another thread (Going T1... (http://spyderea.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=17789)) that Damon includes a spring. There wasn't one so I'm a little fracked at the moment. (Don't worry Hob, I'm not having a go at you!) I've sent an email to the very helpful Damon again on this matter and while I'm waiting on an answer from him I thought I'd ask a few Q's here too...

Are there Spring kits for The One?
If there isn't does anyone know what size spring I'd need? (I'll try my local hardware store if I can, y'see.)
Does anyone have a T1 or T1 kit that they can take pics of? (I just want to see how it all the internals fit together before I mess it up!)
I'm going for the Maddmann Rocket Valve for the T1. Has anyone here tried it out?
Damon at Scenario Dreams tells me that I can use the Ver-C Primal T-Board or Ver-C Spyder T-board with all the stock ESP wire harnesses and a Humphries solenoid, thus sorting out the 12v solenoid problem. Isn't that cool?

Ok. So that last one wasn't really a question but I thought I'd chuck it in there. :) As always, any help/answers/advice I get is much appreciated.

BTW I'm posting this all over the place so don't be surprised if you see the exact same thread elsewhere. I like getting as much info as possible! :D

yep, the verc tboard actually has a jumper on it for EP markers. man, i kind of want to build a t-1, but i think i wanna build my spimmy more XP

I've got a reply from Damon and he's got some springs handy so I'm probably ok on that front now. Roll on payday so that I can get the rest of the stuff I need! Does anyone know what kind of hose I'd need to get for the pneumatics? Is cocker LP hose ok to use or should I get some high flow timmy stuff? Or are they the same?

Nenkitsune - I'm always doing more than 1 project. I'm doing 2 spimmys, 2 LP eMarkers, 1 LP mech and now this! I know what you mean about wanting to get a spimmy done first except I'm just waiting until I pluck up the courage to start milling out the bodies. I think that's why I started this one now! lol :D

yeah, i'm currently working on 3 or 4 projects. once tim sends me some parts i can start my Spocker project, and my LP project again. I'm dremeling my current spyder body to be a spimmy (it looks pretty good so far, a bit rough, but good) and i'm working on making my em-1 all pretty. i'm buying a black/red fade tray and frame from a b2k4 on monday.

Well he told me that he included ram springs, so not really my fault :p.

Have you considered the delrin ram made by ACP?

Also, thats pretty cool about the noid.

ep jumper? good luck on the projects.

spimmy milling is not really all that hard, go ahead!

Ask on pbnation in the dragun forum about a replacement noid for t-1, I forgot which site but they have them for $50. most of the people there know where to still find parts and stuff like that.

I love mine. I have the Dragun T-board from Scenario Dreams with the Ultra Chip in it.

Great board.

I love mine. If you need pics of anything, let me know. I also have some parts for it. I have the ram, a front block, ram cap (Unmodified you'd have to modify it if you want to put a QEV on it). I think I still have some other parts lieing around too.

I can't wait to finish my T-1 Project. (Almost there!!! Check out my sig for a semi new pic of it.)

Rocktet Valve for the T-1.... it was a tough cookie.... I liked it but it made for ALOT more problems with the gun.....

Stock realy is fine... but if you want to upp it then go for it...

Oscum Guy - Thanks. I'm planning on doing something complicated for the milling... and I've never milled a body before so I'm still a little scared of messing it up. lol

08Lud08 - Will ask there. Thanks.

Ace24 - Any pics of how everything connects to the solenoid would be great. I can't think of anything else at the moment but I'll throw you a pm if I get stuck anywhere.

thechubbs12 - I'm basically upping a Spyder. Can I use the stock Spyder valve?

I tried to see if my brothers qev from his ion fits and it does but I dont know how it shoots with it cause I had no air.

Thats what I have on my T-1. A Virture ION QEV. Sidney put it on.
