The flow plug supposdely gives you more shots per tank....The lube of your choice will be fine...I like hater sauce or lurker lube...And finally you really need to look at the stickies or maybe the tuning thread that is right here to read up on tuning your trix....it can be a *&^%$ if it is your first spoolie...The key to a happy dye marker is maintenance, maintenance, and more maintenance!

Tuning and maintenance is much like your older trixs' then....LPR tuning might be different I dunno about the fine print (more turns in or out.) The stickies will have all that info....

thought you said you owned a dm4 before? the dm4 also had a flow plug similar to the dm6, if you did indeed own one before. if its wiggling a little, take the grip frame off and theres a set screw inside there. tighten it down a little but not too tight. honestly, if it isnt leaking or falling out then leave it alone because those are notorious for causing leaks.

someone made tuneing simple and sweet the other day for me, they said to check your manual for what the HPR is to be set at, then set your dwell between 18-21 depending on your preferance, 18 is stock but 21 will give you a smoother shot, then adjust your lpr to where it wont return the bolt, adjust it to where it returns the bolt then give it about 1/2 turn then you should be done, of course chrono before you use it

i owned a DM4 about 6 months ago, then sold it, and bought a dm6.
