nice, but the CS-designs board people went out of business and are just taking peoples money without sending the boards out. i would put a different one in there like ECS which adds the ECS software and eyes and to your stock cricket board, or your vision board.

first off, great job with the sticky. i am in the process of remodelling the dye sticky, inspired by you all.

i was thinking about adding something though. althoug mike has written a very detailed upgrade guide, i was thinking of adding something more simple but didn't want to make an entire thread. it's kinda my upgrade order and things i would reccomend doing. here goes:

modifications requiring no upgrades: these are only meant for people who know what they are doing, and they are not idiot proof. they can all increase the performance of stock parts without costing any $$$.

-first off, tune up your impulse. get the settings you want. i would reccomend setting the input to around 180psi, and adjusting your dwell until you get a good velocity. make sure everything is cleaned and lubed properly. even the most upgraded impulse in the world can get owned by a stock impulse that is tuned correctly.

-bolt mods: well this isn't necessary, but if you don't have a grudge against aluminum, it can make your stock bolt git-r-done. first off, change the o-rings preferably to something a little tighter, something that won't drag as much. if you have a pipe saw or something, you can cut off the rear section of your bolt to cut down slightly on weight and drag, but only cut it to the end of the second conatct area(the second bump from the rear) because you need to leave the spring and bearing section.

-ram assembly mods: this can make a huge difference. if you know how to, take your assembly completely apart. replace all of the internal o-rings that contact the ram with new ones, preferrably buna-n. this will significantly cut down on drag. also, i would suggest buying a jewelry cleaning/polishing cloth, and polishing the ram. it will have a simliar effect to the slick shot, but it will be free. make sure you grease the assembly lightly. too little grease or too much will both slow down the cycle.

-valve: if you have some sort of drill press at your disposal, you can angle the port to give better air flow, similar to the rip valve.

-detents: this isn't really an upgrade, but isn't really stock either, but if you use a halo or evo2, i would get 2 vision detents and use an o-ring as a spacer so that you can tighten them farther into the breech and align them evenly.

-max flo: to start i just want to say the old version of the max flo is more consistant and reliable than the new version. as for modifications, it doesn't need anything but a light coat of grease.

-trigger: remove the rear trigger pin. it will give you a more adjustable range of motion.

upgrades: listed in order of priority in my opinion, with my personal brand reccomendation. if your gun comes with any of these upgrades, keep what you have. also, if you plan on an lpr kit, get that first and ignore the tapeworm. i also list a new board twice, the first time is if you don't have vision, the second one is if you already do. if you don't have any sort of vision, that would obviously go a little higher on the priorities list. also, if you plan on a rip valve, keep your stock hammer, a heavier hammer won't help.

tapeworm- any brand
trigger- new designz pro-mag
bolt- new desigz equalizer white stubby
feedneck- ccm low rise
board- w.a.s. equalizer
hammer- new designz stanless mid weight
valve- new designs rip valve
ram- new designz slick shot
board- w.a.s. equalizer
pull pin- anything titanium
lpr- new designz kit
trigger frame- hsw v3 i-frame
barrel- freak kit or dye ultralite
body milling- eliapaintball.com superlite

there are plenty of other option, these are only the suggestions of a crazy 16yr old who happens to take his own advice and in doing so created one awesome impulse for very little $$$.

Nice addition. I'm going to close it within the next week to keep it clutter free so just PM me if you need something opened for editing. I'll leave it open for a little bit longer though.

no harm done, just giving you a hard time about reviving a REALLY old thread (especially since it's already "stuck")

Not to mention, TPD is dead.

Or at least that's my best bet.
