So its LP operating?

Uziel Gal 11-18-2006 03:57 PM

In so much as it's operating pressure is below 300psi, where low pressure is traditionally considered to start, then yes, it would be considered a low pressure marker.

Q:Where is the Serial Number Located?A:Under the battery inside the Frame

i <3 troy 02-07-2007 07:51 PM

well i didnt want to start a new thread, so ill post here.

how is it compared to an 06 ego? in every way?

RyanS 02-08-2007 02:00 PM

I own a etek and I have tested the 06 ego's. The only difference I find is the 06 ego has a higher bps rate with the stock board (doesn't matter cause only 15 bps is allowed in most tournys). Some internal differences are that the etek doesn't have a qev (don't matter this thing still shoots ropes), and it has a led screen not a lcd screen like the ego. I think the only reason people think lcd screens are better is because it alot faster to see and easyer to see what mode your in or what your customizing etc. Instead of trying to remeber the colors for your led screen. But also I have seen a guy who had a gun (can't remeber which one) and it had a lcd screen on it. The guy got shot in the lcd screen and then the screen went all blurrie and was junk. But there is a 1 in 1000 chance you would be hit there. So it doesn't matter to me which one. Hope this kind of helps. Oh also the etek is cheaper by about 200-300$.

I agree; and now you have a virtue and a tadao board available for those of you speedracers!

Question: should I use my gun oil on my cure bolt?

RyanS 02-12-2007 05:51 PM

I think that would be fine

Uziel Gal 02-12-2007 10:59 PM

Just lubricate the o-rings. No need to oil the bolt itself.

oofox99 02-13-2007 01:23 PM

Thanks Uziel...and I couldn't find this answer for my question; I did a search in this thread and couldn't find it:

Now I know when lubricating the lpr and frm you need to use vaseline. How about the rammer housing? I've been mainly using my eclipse oil on the orings and on the rammer. Is this ok to? I haven't touched the solenoid yet so should I clean that before and after I use my E*Tek? Thanks for your help guys...

Uziel Gal 02-13-2007 01:58 PM

I wouldn't work on the solenoid unless you feel you need to. If you do, use Dow33. The oil supplied with the marker is the correct lubricant for the rammer.

vitosciali 02-15-2007 02:36 PM

.689 bore? you sure? I thought it was .693

Edit - I called PE. Barrel bore size is .693.

jcat3386 04-23-2007 12:57 PM

i have a ? i was told that the etek really only maxes out at 15 a second i havent shot one or havent seen one shoot i was told this by the pro at my pro shop prob stupid ? but owell just askin

oofox99 04-23-2007 01:48 PM

etek is capped at 15 bps

In ramping, but uncapped in semi. Stock '05 and '06 Ego's are also capped at 15bps in ramping, so the Etek isn't at a disadvantage there.

If you are asking if 15bps is the absolute limit of the Eteks cycle rate, then no, it isn't. It may not cycle as fast as a normal Ego, but it will certainly cycle more than 15 times a second.

criss da balla 05-30-2007 06:41 PM

does the stock board use the laser sensor thing to detect trigger pulls or does it use a micro-switch?

Uziel Gal 05-30-2007 11:14 PM

Microswitch on a stock Etek board, Optiswitch on the '05, '06 and Maniac Ego board, microswitch and optiswitch on the '07 Ego board - you decide which of the two switches to use.
