Tank: http://www.actionvillage.com/031-530-0001
Loader: http://www.actionvillage.com/014-169-0032

Do you guys recommend the chip upgrade??? i mean it is just $20 is it worth it?? (http://www.tadaotechnologies.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=13&idproduct=52)

yeah, most spyder triggers are like that, if you get aftermarket triggers, most will not wiggle, both those aren't bad choices

Tank is good.
Loader is ok, I suggest a Halo or Vlocity or something like that.
You don't really need the chip but they are fun.
And the feed neck looks good.

For other upgrades maybe a new barrel but I'm not sure how good the stock barrel is.

replace the o-ring. you could also try to wrap it in teflon tape.

the o-ring on top of the regulator looks good :( are leaking a common thing on spyder guns??

I haven't noticed a leak with my RSX. Try tossing some lube on the o-ring.

I have put around 12 cases thru my RSX and no leaks as far as upgardes the only thing I have done is put a freak kit barrle on it and I love it.

puted some Teflon on the regulator and no go. still leaks air.. The air is between the barrel and the regulator... like just on top where the psi meter is... like where the cup seal and the valve body is...

Did you take out the valve body at some point? If so, you may have put it in backwards.

If you haven't taken it out, you make need to replace your cup seal.

Take off the front block and inspect the oring on the shaft that inserts into the body. Relubricate if necessary.

To answer your leaking question, yes and no. The only guns I've ever owned that have not had any leaks at all (apart from timing errors) are 'Cockers and 'Mags. Timmy's leak, Ego's leak, DM's leak, PM's leak, Spyders leak, etc etc etc. It all happens at some point and the best prevention for leaks is to lubricate often and don't screw with **** that aint broke. You probably took off the front block at some point and the oring got scored from it or gained a hair (markers don't hit puberty, it isn't supposed to be there) and is leaking through that small gap. Oil through the ASA before airing up without a hopper and barrel and dry-firing normally fixes most Spyder problems. If that don't work, you can either pick up DOW55 or a new oring. DOW55 swells orings, and I recommend it for ANY static (non-moving) oring on any marker.
