Re: Car Tire CPS PCs?

Yeah, shouldn't be too much of a problem, it'd straighten out once it fills up.

Re: Car Tire CPS PCs?

That's if it actually works; I don't know how you could get around the circular shape.
You can just chop it and close one end up, no problem there.

It could work, I don't know enough about the elasticity of the material, but at worst I'd just fear for its durability.

Re: XP 110 (with a hundred and ten problems)

My quick recommendation is to do what you've already done, but more. Plumber's epoxy on every joint and hope that seals up better, then multiple rubber bands on that firing pin (one does nothing unless you double or triple it up and it's thick to begin with). As for check valves, from my experience,...

Re: XP 110 (with a hundred and ten problems)

110 is probably my second favourite soaker of all time, so it pains me to think that someone would have to replace it. I'm in class now, so I can't help too much, but please keep us updated.

Also, mainly because I have the song stuck in my head (will be using it for an audition later tonight), but the thread title immediately reminded me of this and I laughed a fair bit.

Re: What Is This?!?

Plus it's hooked up to a hose, they may have modded the internals so it's purely hose-powered. Can't really say without seeing a full shot (SEAL's suggestion is very likely too)

Re: Portable Electronic Water Sensors

Thinking very far ahead here, but it would be pretty cool (for a huge game size, totally useless for anything relatively small) to have the sensor send out a signal to a central computer, ie notifying the head organizer that a player has been hit. There's a lot that can be done with that, but of cou...

Re: PC Replacement Mod - AP to CPS

There are lots of companies that sell LRT, but as far as I know, only McMaster-Carr sells it in varying sizes and not in bulk. The others either cost too much (because they're selling huge amounts), have too small a tubing diameter for our purposes, or too thin a wall for our purposes. That's as far...

Re: PC Replacement Mod - AP to CPS

I would go for the same amount as on SuperCPS. Just one tube of LRT tends not to get great results, doubling up is, from my experience, necessary if you want good performance. If you do intend on layering strips of LRT on top of one another, I'd recommend reading this , starting at JLSpaceMarine's f...

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

Yeah, Water Warriors loves rereleasing blasters with different nozzles. There was the '06 Lightning and Blazer, both with more variety than the originals, Gorgon this year, and I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch.

But really, I'd go for Super-CPX (I was about to say XPS but that's a different mod)

Re: PC Replacement Mod - AP to CPS

In terms of volume, cylindrical takes up more space, but spherical will take up more space horizontally. Cylindrical can expand lengthwise a lot more, so the PCs won't necessarily interfere. Anyway, I don't have much to say, this did remind me that I can fix my Lightning since I've found my strip of...

Re: PC Replacement Mod - AP to CPS

It would be a terrific mod if you pull it off, but there are a number of hurdles you'd need to overcome. First, as you say, is the permanent nature of this kind of mod. Of course, you can build it in a reversible way, but that risks compromising the seal between each PC and the connectors. If you ha...

Just got my Monster X ('02 version), took about 2 combined hours of travelling to get it, but it was cheap and I don't lead a very eventful life, so very much worth it.

Re: Hydrocannon

The PC is made up of about 40 balloons, which you can see in the earlier pictures. I haven't had any luck with balloons yet, having kinda broken my WW Lightning because of them, but I figured it'd be easier work on the HC.
