Now... is there only a tinfoil amount of metal there... no. Was Mike being conservative... probably. But he has a point.

So, just be careful how much weight you hang off those two little screws and your guard.
Thanks and will do! The guard on the F1 is twice to three times as thick as the Phantom but I'll still watch it. The bottle on there in the picture is a 7 oz. I don't see myself shooting through more than that (maybe a 9oz) in 2 or 3 games though.

I have a couple of 3.5oz tanks. I could always just carry a couple and switch them when they get low/run dry. That would actually make the whole package really tight and there would definitely be no worries about tweaking a trigger guard or worse.

I actually did run a bucket changer and stick feed one time for a "pistol" game. I got ~15 useable shots and then it vented

I would run a remote for big games. I've still got my old horizontal 6+1 suspender pack. I may just not get out to play much anymore but I can't remember the last time I saw someone running around with any type of horizontal pack with suspenders and a remote.

Yeah, I was trying to remember and was expecting 12 shots.

It's a Tamiya 15134-360 "Torque Tuned" motor. The hardest part about making the swap was removing the drive pulley from the original motor. This little guy is an absolute beast though!

I used to have a Midnight Pumpkin and Upgraded the motor on it, but it's too big for a hopper upgraded motor to fit in a case. I'm putting my hopper on a t-stock idea on hold. I did get the mag to run on 12 grams with a stick feed. The hopper work you did was very impressive. I can't get the stock v-max motor to push the stack of balls more than 2 feet.

Great work and I look forward to seeing the final project.
