the board can't cycle 66.6 bps either.
the board can only cycle as fast as the pnuematics can.
the 66.6 (like posted in these thread 3 times already) is how many times the board checks for trigger events. this creates more oppurtunities to produce a higher ROF.
example (using fictional even numbers) your pnuematics can cycle balls up to 4bps. you set your board at 1bps. you pull the trigger 3 times in a second. you fire 1 ball. simple enough.
now you set the board to 3bps. you pull 3 times in a second at .111 .222. and .777 shot #2 is skipped because the board wasn't allowed enough time to reset and check for a event (1 third of a second).
now set your board at 40bps. you can still only shoot 4 a second, but it will reset and check for an event every .025 seconds. much better change of hitting that window and max'in out the ROF.
(note: some boards buffer shots, like in the 3bps example, it would store the .222 event until .333 then fire it.)
thats what the 66.6 does.
from advertising claims i've seen made, several boards check for events as much as a million times a second.
