Don't wanna resurrect a dead thread but......
Bought the dart kit and I found it noticeably smoother, however, very inconsistent!!! All setting stock and its on a CSL and eats air like mother!!

Any one else have this issue?? Prior to install my CSL was +/- 3 and I could get 9 pods and a full rotor off a 68/4500 now it's like +/- 20 and only 6-7 pods and a rotor...


Any advise on fixing this problem at all? Recommended settings and the like..

Cheers folks

It doesn't sound like it was very efficient to start with. 9 pods on a 68/45 isn't right
But just swapping the DART kit shouldn't make it any less efficient. It should make it slightly better with stock settings, and a noticeable increase if you tuned it accordingly.
There are several well written threads on tuning solenoid and dwell on here. DART kit will tune the same

I would have about 1000psi left after this so it was very efficient lol... Now I'm left with about 500psi
Oh we'll, just have to play with it I spose

Came across this installing mine today. Got the old one out went to install new one and thought "oooh bugger." Took a guess, nailed it. Dropped solenoid setting back to 3/6 (first time adjusting them from new) over the chrony and it was punching out 310-320 from solid 290's.

LOVE the DART kit

a similar situation happened to me, when I installed my kit, I did not have any fps jump, and the gun became terribly inconsistent. after day or 2 playing the gun would not shoot over to 240. so I removed the dart kit and completely overhauled the reg. chrono'd the gun to 290, and reinstalled the dart kit. everything is now good and gun with shooting over 310.

I think coincidentally my reg needed to be rebuilt when I installed the kit.

I bought my EGO11 new and dropped the DART kit into it straight away.

Almost 4 boxes into it and it is starting to feel smoother. When I first took the EGO11 out, I didn't like it. Didn't feel as smooth as a GEO2.1 - I know, going to be hard to beat that!

After the last case, it was feeling better. I am running it at 1/7 on the valve settings.

Probably still needs a few more cases through her before she is bedded in.

Personally I would reset it back to stock on the solenoid and run about 6-8 more cases before fine tuning. This way your break in the orings nicely. Once it broken in, it'll come real damn close to feeling like your Geo2.1. Mine does.

I through the dart in my ego 11 and noticed amazing performance right away. Shot about a case and a half with 5500 psi. Sounds a lot different and is Definently smoother as well. All settings are still stock, haven't even fine tuned her yet.

Threw*
4500 psi*

Unless you've found a 5500 psi tank and fill station
