Most efficient settings Q's

What are your experiences with the most efficient settings on the Quest?
1: Does a lower lpr = efficiency?
2: Does a lower dwell effect it enough to matter?

I run my 06 at around 50-60 psi on the lpr with good ABS assistance.
The dwell is set at 9ms.

I just run the games and fill after each so I have really been unable to
sit down and shoot as many pods and find out what my marker can accomplish.










*Disclaimer: I realize that what I am asking may seem silly because each marker can be very different. I am only trying to establish a benchmark for myself as I really love Quests.

When you are talking about the air used to cycle the bolt, you're talking about relatively small amounts of air, as compared to the volume and pressure used to propel the ball. So bear in mind we are talking about relatively small changes here.

Now, if the amount of air vented with each cycle is more or less the same, then with the lower pressure, we are releasing less air per cycle, so the lower LPR pressure should be more efficient, but as stated above, we're talking relatively small differences.

On the flip side of that, the slower bolt cycle can effect how efficient the bolt is at dealing with air used to fire the ball, so while you may gain some efficiency on the bolt cycle, you may lose some efficiency on the shot. So in balance, you may see very little difference. Really depends how well the bolt speed is maintained at lower LPR pressures.

Hola Quest Amigo's
I went out today to test my marker and see whats what!
I shot 2 bags on a 3000 fill.
Really excited about this bad boy.

Settings:
ABS: 12ms
DWELL: 9ms
LPR: 85 psi

I appreciate the response, now I won't mess with the
marker to try to squeeze out another pod.

See ya later cowboys
