Review: I bought the Rampage to lighten the trigger pull on my 98 custom, and to get a higher rate of fire. I got the full drop in kit from tippmannpros.com, as I didn't have an E-trigger before. It came in a nice little box and a baggie with the sear, rod, and magnet. I read the instructions, but it took a little research to figure out how to put it in, because the instructions mostly had programming instructions. This is where I started having problems.

I had to look at a few pictures online before I knew the general arrangement or the components. The wires had little space to get placed (I guess this was Tippmann's fault) and were long. This was not the worst part, however. It turned out that the solenoid was too big, and I had to then take EVERYTHING off of the two shells and file/dremel out the area for the solenoid to get it to fit. It this point, it still didn't fit together all the way and I eventually had to call Tippmann to find out that I had to knock out the area where the battery goes. After I did this, I still had to figure out where the wires went and then I finally got it together. After some minor trouble-shooting, I finally got it working.

The Rampage Board was designed to be a replacement for the old E-trigger, and the instruction sheet reflected this. However, I think that because APE was selling it as a drop in kit, they should have included a sheet telling drop-in users how to install. The solenoid being too big may have been Tippmann's fault, but I had no knowledge of this when buying.
Conclusion: If you can install it right, it works great!
However, there should have been more instructions included.
