Yes, dry fire will not give you the correct dwell for actual paint, dry fire will give you a starting point for the dwell. You dry fire and slowly raise the dwell until the bolt fully cycles and then you start shooting paint to set the correct dwell and pressure for the velocity you are playing at. So set your pressure where you want it, dry fire until the bolt fully cycles, the start testing with paint and raise the dwell to achieve the velocity you need.

so basically if your dwell and recharge seings are perfect a sock ion can shoot over 17bps at what piont do you start to blow banjo fittings and all that jazz?

A stock Ion is capped at 17 bps by the software set in the stock SP board. As long as you have the stock board you will never be able to shoot above 17 bps.

You will not "blow" anything on the Ion as long as you keep the pressure under 200 psi.

Ok, I have read and read and my eyes are bleeding....
I set my Ion (upgrades are: qev, l6 bolt, brand new cp reg , rake trigger, stiffy barrel, ndz on/off and trinity quick release feedneck)
to 12 flashes dwell, 145 psi and 36 flashes ROF, then my local store looked at it and told me that the rof needed to be set higher to get max bps. he raised the rof and the gun sounds a lot faster that before.

Now, this is confusing me.

Any help would be appreciated

If you want the maximum speed then just decrease the recharge to the bottom. You don't have to set it exactly to "17-bps" to shoot it. The speed of the gun will also change when you adjust the dwell, although it's a small change.

Ok the problem here is that when I set the rof down (single blink yellow light) to when there is only yellow blinks no red while pressing the power on off button the cycling is real slow. then I put the rof up (single red blink light
0 to the max where only red light blinks while pressing the power on off button and the cycling is mega fast. all this while psi are at 140 and dwell is a 13 flashes.

what give ?

thanks

You should have it set to where it is Single blink red and you push it until the yellow light does not blink anymore. Once you have done that the board is set to the fastest possible settings.

Reading the entire sticky on the first page of this thread might clear up some misconceptions you are having.

This is just what I said on my above post.

So I'm good to go then.

When dealing with this, you should do one of two things. not both. Either read ONLY just the manual, or read ONLY just the website (zdspb or this thread). If you read both you might get lost.

Both sources give the same end result. It's just how you get there that confuses people.

If you've read both then try to completely disregard one source and read just the other.

Say that I want to set my T-Board to 54 ms. Would that be 54 times that I press the button or would it be 108 times that I would have to press the button? sorry but I am really confused

The t-board is adjusted 1 ms at a time. So every time you push the button you are moving only 1 ms.

However, you would never want to set it to 54 ms.

34 ms is a good area for an Ion without a QEV.

The T-board manual can be found here.

I was wondering if this chart will still apply after i install my qev ....a 360....i will set my dwell like the begining of the thread says.....lower dwell and raise it untill gun cycles, then raise it like 4 or so higher......Well i'm gunna suppose that after i install the qev my dwell is at 28 blinks ( idk what it'll be at just supposing)....then can i use the chart below tho limit my rof to 15bps or will it be inacurate b/c of the qev....I will later also get a bolt...will it effect it then?

To limit your dwell to 15 bps is a simple combination of the numerical value 64.

So if you set your dwell with a QEV just for example to 16.

64-16 = 48

You would leave your dwell at 16 and set the ROF(Recharge) setting to 48.

so it's the same even with a qev and a bolt or will it be different b/c i just have a qev....would it be the same as if i had the stock parst in the gun to limit the rof?? So could i use that chart even with a qev and bolt??? Or would i just use the 64 rule with or without a qev or bolt.

You would use the 64 rule to set a cap of 15 bps on your gun no matter what parts you have.

A QEV simply lowers your dwell causing you to raise the ROF setting.

It must always equal 64 if you want to cap it at 15 bps.

Also, to set the recharge at 0, would I have turn the "ROF" up (single blink red)?

Single blink red is correct.
