    Sent 2 flat end rods out today.

    Use the one that works the best. The ends are not exactly the same.

    Please save all in used parts. If you don't use the tornado valve springs please keep them separate from the extra springs in the mad man kit.

    Look for them friday.

    I got everything together, and the timing roughed out. We have been getting poured on since last Friday, so I haven't really been able to do much testing with paint at this point. This Friday is free, so if the weather holds out, I can start testing with paint by then, if not sooner.

    It's up an running, but the velocity is jumpy.
    At this point, it could be the SST needing to be broken in more, or more tuning, time will tell which.
    I'm going to slap my 'geddon, and Messiah on it, and see if things stabilize. That will at least narrow down the cause of the inconsistency.

    I have a Fatty and a sidewinder in used condition. I could send for testing. And a Stabilizer also.

    Darn looked like it was almost ready to go.

    I have another project for you also in the wings.

    Well, it's done. The efficiency isn't the greatest, but I was tuning for stability as the first priority.

    I made a video, but somehow, I lost the audio between the phone format, and the media player when I added some captions.

    220 psi, and I was using the SST, so it will be good to go when you get it.
    It could go a little lower, and use a lighter IVG setting, but the chrono results opened up a little, so I kept it where it was the most consistent.

    I will need to lower the fps at my home field. 285 fps max.

    Sounds like your done. So looking forward to taking it out to the field.

    Thanks for all the work and advice.

    About 1/8th of a turn on the inline should get you there, no problem.
