Did they say anything about releasing a new version along side the older version or that they would announce a new product release?

They didn't say anything specific ... Exactly what was said was that there is the newest version coming out and its not quite available but to stay in touch and to email them this coming Monday and they would let me know if the new ones were available and if they weren't they would have a much more definite answer as to when.. I have stalked their lives for the past month..lol.. But when I have asked about whats included in the new engine i have literally gotten 0 response to that.. Like it wasn't even in the email..lol

I have asked for specifics too and gotten the same result. I guess they aren't going to show their hand until it's time.

I called Friday and was told that there is a new bolt head, and "possibly" a backcap with a larger volume, as well as it being threaded for a guage, I was told they were expecting them to be available next week

I got an e-mail from Tim a couple of days ago stating that I needed to call Techt to get the upgraded bolt. I've tried several times and get a busy signal. Grrrr.

Every single last time I've ever called them I've gotten a busy signal. That's why I've resolved to never call them again.

OOOH AHHHH OH BBBBBBAAAAAAABBBBYYYYY pure Techt goodness!!!

Looks good! Feels good! IS good! mmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmm good!
(A little Full Metal Jacket humor there.)

Well I got through today and talked to Tim with zero wait time. I was talking to the man so fast about bolts and forgot to ask about the phone situation, but perhaps they were having some kind of phone problem that is now fixed. He told me a little about the new G4 bolt and the changes we are going to see in them. He told me I should have one coming my way on Monday!!!! As soon as it's in my hot little hands I will post up hi-def pics of it so you can see it for yourself. Hopefully I will also get to shoot it a few times so I can compare with the original Techt bolt, modded bolt and the new one. In conversation I asked about expanding the back cap and he said that he had actually tried enlarging the dump chamber more and gotten shoot down problems. I think that 1/8" hole that dumps air into the dump chamber is the problem. IE: You just can't push enough air down that tiny pipe fast enough to fill a larger dump chamber. He told me the new back cap is threaded for a gauge and that the bolt has some kind of face on it made of Delrin to push the paint forward a little to help prevent rollback. I said to him that the bolt face had been "pootyfied". He laughed and agreed that it was some what similar. I had considered putting an insert inside the bolt that flattened the bolt face and had a cylinder in the middle the same diameter as the bolt tail so that air flow would be straightened out a little, but never got around to experimenting. Ah well, now it comes standard apparently. Tim told me the new G4/G3 Spec R bolts are all done, but didn't mention anything about the other bolts that will also implement these updates. I think the G4 bolt got first priority, but I may be misinterpreting what he said.

I have a digital DB meter on the way so I can give real measurements of noise levels. I probably wont do a video since pics are sufficient. I will show pics of the DB meter and the chrono.

Probably because they are now shipping the new version.
