coinsidently i do know what happens there in series it gets more power in parallel it gets less power with paralled wiring the motor is only getting about 9v while in seiries it would be getting about 18v, a bunch of ppl were asking about doing it in series and i did it and it is way too fast to feed paint so i was letting people know that wiring it in series would not work.

first, of all angel_ower your wrong! theres something wrong with ur old marq because my closer and all the closer owners i know shoot faster than 15 bps.

second the jams are not because of the mod you idiot its cause of your paint. It happen to me in the begining but it was the paint. just fyi if you get that new rotor upgrade it will work even better.

If people don't believe me, send me 2 pods to san diego, california and ill shoot my ironmen dm9 full auto uncap'ed and show ya.

I just did the mod....easiest mod I have ever done and it is reversable with the connector tips I bought at radio shack. Seriously, twice as fast, unreal in fact. Now this slow *** hopper might be worth using again.

Thanks for posting the vids!!!

tl;dr

Volt boost. Same mod done to thousands of hoppers around the world, and most keep working.

Good for you in trying it on an expensive rotor, and then letting us know it won't fry (at least not right away!). Totally unnecessary, but who cares

I played in a two day tourney this weekend, shot ten cases of paint and only had one jam...maybe around the 3rd case or so. This mod made such a difference to this loader...I hated it's speed before, now, this thing is legit. It is so reversable, so easy to do, I actually did a few teammates loaders also. I was using a BL Vice and evil, I do not have that new upgrade yet that would have helped with my jam...but, one ball out of 20K...and it was easy to take care of during play! I changed batteries every 3 cases or so...wasn't sure about battery life.

Thanks again!

Did the mod and i no longer can use the anti jam. I realized that if i shut the motor off quicker by bending the switch then the spring wouldn't compress completely. So i bent the switch so ANY pressure on the orange thing would shut the motor off. The problem is that the motor has so much power that after it shuts off there is enough speed left to fully wind the spring. does this happen to your hopper? are your settings for switch and tension stock?

My switch tension is stock. My anti jam still works about as well as it did before. Try the V2 anti-jam??

it's weird but it didn't get any faster...not sure what i did. It spins faster with the mod, and my ego on uncapped ramp should be able to shoot faster than 21.

I think it would be fun to modify new gear but financially itís not in the future. For me, my stock Rotor works great. Itís an interesting video though.

This mod is NOT for people who's rotors work great. It seems you got a good one. Mine was patheticly slow.

Maybe mines slow to and I just don't know any better...it does handle my PM7 just fine, of course, I have no idea how fast my marker really shoots when I let Ďer rip..maybe your markers and fingers are a lot faster than mine..in any event, interesting reading in this threadÖ
As a side note, wouldn't adding different gear ratios make the feeder faster? and if there are no gears,what about changing the shafts or wheels to a different size? Obviously I know nothing about the mechanics of hoppers but I just thought I would throw my worthless .02 inÖ
Keep up the Experiments!

I did multiple on gun tests and my Reloader B2 was WAY faster. Might not have been as consistant, but still audilby faster. I say, if it keeps up with you and your gun, then its fast enough. Mine went into my gearbag in place of my B2 until me and a friend thought of this mod through a clould of bong smoke.

Do you find that it cause any more paint breakage? That would be my only fear.

I've not come across any problems in the many months that I have had this mod. I now have 2 rotors, both with this mod.

I shoot marbs, formula13, evil, and showtime. Nothing has broken inside the hopper or breach. Even refilling at a full spin.
