Well there are a few things you can do instead of cutting paddles. For example, heres what I did:

I put pins in all the paddles, and then bent them up or down in sucession. IE: 1 paddle up, next paddle down, next up, next down, next up, next down, etc. This I thought would help the problem of popping balls in the hopper (not breaking, just having them bounce a round a bunch). Plus, you can undo it without a problem if you end up not liking it.

Another thing you can do to speed up the Egg without buying a Z-board, is add a 3rd 9 volt. This will require some modding to the shells and or wires, and this may also eventually fry your motor, but motors can come cheap. If you have any questions on wiring it, just ask me, I will help you out.

I would do the 3rd 9 volt mod leed was talking about. I did it and noticed a huge speed increase. Tho i think my batteries went a bit quicker. I would not recomend cutting your impeller. I have heard replacing it with a revvy impeller helps tho.

and if you want a really easy mod.... Just put in 2 9.6v batteries instead of 9v's. It will give you 1 or 2 more bps.
