Only changes I would make is get a Delrin bolt and also look into a different striker like the DH Titanium or IPS Nightstriker XL.

I wouldnt get the LP Chamber....Doesn't do much for your marker. Be sure to polish whatever internal parts you get!

The thing in the bottom tube of your marker that "strikes" the valve and causes it to open.

Don't forget that you will also need a high flowing V/A, like the CIP assault block or drill out your stock one.

hmm .. also get a 32 degrees spring kit .. they're better IMO.
Highflowing v/a as the Assault block or Trinity .. as ad0 said.
Ur gonna need ur gun milled for eyes .. or else .. they're useless
Also your gonna need eye covers

i got the acs aluminum bolt for $15. brand new includding shipping and i'm loving it and i never had any problems with it. do i need to change the bolt if i go LP?? i'm going to change the striker for sure... thinking of getting nightstriker XL.

haha nice, remember to wear in the ACS bolt though :) .. or else it'll work normal like any other bolt ...

You don't have to change your bolt, but a Delrin bolt will be lighter.

my new "wish list"
-------------------------
maddmann rocket valve
cp regulator
CIP assualt block
32 degrees spring kit
IPS Nightstriker XL
Delrin bolt (if my aluminum bolt doesnt feel right)
Scenario Dreams Breakbeam eyes
Scenario Dreams Spyder T-Board
Intimidator Eye Covers (Racing Lady or $)
----------------------------------
i think thats about it... most of stuff that im getting is easy to install but i might need help with eyes. i saw someone was doing the service for some amount of fee... i'll look around the forum. this project is going to cost me around $300!!!!! wow... also so i need to get new ball detents?? let me know guys.

yeah, $300 is about average, i think. as for the detents, youll need stock intimidator ones for the eye covers

03-01-2006, 03:01 PM
yep, but i dunno if you'd wanta go that far ... just do the plug and play method .. unless you have a lot of spare time, going to work hard on it, and your also going to have to have a lot of money

johnnyblast
03-01-2006, 03:27 PM
yes indeed! $300 is not something i can make within a day. i saved up about $150 and i was hoping i can do full upgrade without spending more then $250. if you guys can tell me where i can buy parts for cheap please inform me!!! i looked around ebay and couldnt find much.

do you have an electro hopper yet .. reloader b, halo b, eggy w/ z-board ... if your gonna get the t-board .. your gonna need one of these 3 .. best to least. Try PBN .. i have found a lot of good deals ... just watch out for feedback

i have VL Revolution without xboard. my friend said he might have extra xboard somewhere in his room a.k.a jungle so he'll take his time to look for it.

03-02-2006, 03:14 PM
well .. just for you here's the x-board (http://spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=1792). Just make an offer there ... only if your friend can't find it though ...

johnnyblast

if there was some kind of "chip" that has on and off switch that came along with VL Revolution... that is x-board right??? if that is the x-board, i am an idiot!!! my friend gave me his revolution with x-board but i had to change the shell... and i forgot to put back the x-board!!! till today, i kept telling him to look for my missing x-board in his room. sweet.

No need to swap out bolts, the acs bolt doesn't have a venturi, so its high flowing. You can check out otters site, hes got in his bolt list under Project LP, telling how well it works.

great news!!! i was kinda short on $$ but thanks to my tax return!! i have ordered my "wish items" last week. today i got my maddman rocket valve and DH Titanium Hammer but do i need to polish the striker when its brand new??

ooglieboogliebob
03-06-2006, 03:37 PM
you can .. but i personally wouldn't .. just lube it well and then put it in your gun and play :)

johnnyblast

My LP setup is workin great with a delrin ACS bolt, I wouldn't change it, if I were you. And If your at all comfortable with a drill, some of the parts are not neccisary, like the cip assault block, I'm only 16 but I made the stock VA high flowing, and drilled and tapped for a gauge that I installed, of course, I enjoy doing the work myslef, makes you feel even better about your gun, cuz you did the mods, not just bought a bunch of stuff and stuck it in there. And I wouldn't neccissarily buy all this at once, like if you've got the ACS, you don't really need the t-board right now, I'd say get your lp setup going
then get at-board etc. beacuase also, do you even acctually need to lay down more than 13 bps?

ooglieboogliebob

hmm.. hey Hob, your gun really isn't considered a great LP setup at 500psi ... need to low it down to about 300 psi .. and even lower ... Have you considered on getting more items ?? .. what is your setup ??

the derlin bolt isn't great for it though .. as druid said ... maybe the aka lightning bolt or the tigershark bolt.

johnnyblast
03-13-2006, 06:07 PM
does aka lightning bolt fit on imagine? because imagine is side-cocking and lightning bolt is for rear cocking guns only... not sure

It's at 400 psi now, I dunno where you got the idea it was 500 psi... I'll be getting it down more once I fiddle with my springs, this was just what I got with the first two springs I put into it.. Plus I'm getting a nightstriker xl or a DH titanium hammer.

johnny, you could probably mod it to side cock if you want, but it'd probably be easier to try another.

johnnyblast
03-13-2006, 07:46 PM

CIP assualt block
32 degrees spring kit (backorder)
