Clean and lube is your best bet. Also, take the ASA apart and make sure the screws aren't rubbing against the cam shaft.

V3 has new can and solenoid voltage regulator

V1 vs V2 is really just about the bolt, reg tophat, and ASA Core (they went from a cupped face like the original shockers and luxes to a flat-faced bolt to prevent rollback)

V3 is coming out within the next month or so and it's primarily a new can and voltage regulator from what I understand.


Realistically, if you get ANY vapor and throw a pooty or V2 bolt in it, you'll be up to speed. I really only use the pooty/v2 bolts for small-bore paint, as I prefer to use the V1 bolt normally. The Tophat fixed and over pressurization issue that occurred under rare circumstances, and the V2 ASA core is only helpful if you V1 core falls out all of the time.

how do you set the tourney lock? Everytime I put it on, it locks it into semi, and that's not exactly what I want. How do I lock it into the mode I want?

Make sure the fire mode you want to use is the only active fire mode in profile A, then flip the switch on the back of the board. Flipping the switch will prevent you from accessing the menu or changing modes. Post up if you need step by step instructions.

Set the first Profile to the Mode you want and remove all other modes from that profile. Flip the Tourney Switch and *PRESTO* you are locked into that mode until you Turn off the Tourney switch

I did that after the first time it happened. now it has happened again, ive taken it apart cleaned/lubed it and that lever will hardly budge, i do not understand whats happening.

what screws would be rubbing against the cam shaft?

edit - i loosened the screw that i can get to (that holds the asa on the grip frame) and the lever turns freely now...im not comfortable with leaving that screw looose just so i can turn my asa lever...whats the deal? i dont want a loose ASA just so i can turn it on and off. dont know if this helps but im pretty sure its a v1 vapor, #313

ok looking at the scratches on my lever cam thingy they are definitely coming from the asa screw closest to the front of the ASA...do i sand down the ridges on that screw? is this a manufacturing defect? arrrrghhhh

You might have taken a weird dive and warped it slightly. I can send you one of the "v2" ASA shafts that have been ground down slightly. PM me your shipping info

The Virtue Board is a Drop in fit. Works well but I suggest you set up the back stop properly before you snap the micro switch like I did.

Can somebody explain what the Feathertouch screw does exactly? What does it control? What will change when you are screwing it in or out, like efficiency, smoothness wise?

Okay, so I have a Vapor on the way. Besides following the tuning guide anything else I should know?

Also its probably in the thread somewhere, but I have a ninja tank with a stock ninja reg, I know you can take out shims in ninja regs to make it lower pressure, any suggestions on the proper way to set up my ninja tank for this gun?
