Since taking everyone’s advice on board about my Kublai gearbox, I’ve bought parts for it so that I can muck around with upgrading it. And, if things go nuts-up, I’m not too fussed. I’ve played around and rebuilt the thing a couple of times, just to see how it works.
Question is: what do I do with this now?
I wanted to build a box that would be super-reliable with top-shelf parts. As I’ve briefly mentioned before, I live on a remote island in the Torres Strait… things take a long time to get here by mail. And in QLD, where this is all legal, it’s a fun hobby. There’s no Blaster range out here, and I just got into it to pass the time, shooting mangoes and coconuts (that’s a joke). I’ll be back in Vic within 4 months, where blasters aren’t allowed. Obviously I’ll accidentally pack it, though. How did that get in there?!
I bought all the same brand compatible parts for the Kublai box, and hopefully they all work will together. All of the heavy-lifting has kind of been done for me. 18:1 gears, 14 tooth piston, etc. But building the MK box from scratch kind of means I have more freedom. But with this freedom comes choice, and with choice comes room for error. Things like volume of the cylinder compared to the barrel, t piece and gel feeding issues with the nozzle, bad motor/gearing ratio/number of piston teeth combo… you all know.
TL/DR: anyone got a winning recipe of quality internals for this box? Or has anyone built an MK box and have advice?
Also, I need a good V2 receiver to put it into; it won’t fit into the Kublai without a bit of Dremeling, which I’m not too keen on.
