Eyes can be difficult to install. Should use HPA because of new marker cycle rates.
Damon William (www.scenariodreams.com) has created quite an awesome product. As advertised, the T-board installs in under 5 minutes in your existing Kingman ESP frame. Comes with 2 page instruction sheet that makes it relatively easy to program sear dwell, eye debounce, trigger debounce using just the red LED as your guide. Even comes with a software mode to support eye alignment which is an excellent feature.
You better have at least a good drill press and some skill. Drilling into your Spyder body can permanently damage things if not done correctly. I used a drill bit that was 1/64" larger than the LED diameter. Location for the eye was selected to be at the low point of the barrel where a ball would drop from the vertical feed neck. I used a metal punch on the side of the barrel so the drill bit wouldn't wander all over the barrel. After drilling through the barrel, I deburred the inside of the barrel w/ 400 grit sandpaper on a wooden dowel rod because the drill bit does leave behind some metal shavings. I used a rubber washer at the base of each LED; otherwise, the LED will sit too far into the barrel and be obliterated by the bolt when fired. I secured each LED using eye covers made for an Intimidator (note: you will have to drill 2 additional holes to secure the eye covers). I did keep the stock ball detent in place, this means that I did have to do some milling to one of the eye covers to it wouldn't interfere with the stock ball detent.
The stock spring in the electronic trigger switch is way too strong (250g) and should be lightened down to 50-100g. I actually took the trigger switch apart and lightened the pull by shortening the travel of the trigger switch return spring (a very small internal spring in the trigger switch).
I could do 8 bps with the old ESP frame and I can now do 14-15 bps with the trigger modification and the T-board installed.
Excellent addition to any electronic Spyder owner that is looking to lay down more paint. Beware, the eyes are difficult to install and not for the meak.

yo, u said you've used the piranha e-frame. I have one, worked great until it broke, sent it in and pmi fixed it, but the spring inside the e-frame is is really stiff. is shortening the trigger switch a hard task to perform? Im kinda scared to take it apart.
