New to my Luxe

Recently Purchased a luxe 2.0 and have to wait a few weeks before I get to test it out on the field. My question is whether there are any parts or settings that are a 'must'? Love any feedback you guys can lend, thanks!

first question where do you live?

personally i would run the stock core. IMO its the easiest to work with and address issues if they do arise, if you are in the cold bump the dwell to 16ms keep the FSDO setting at factory, with the Feather touch screw in make the manifold screw flush and enjoy start playing with settings once it warms up so you do not run into any FSDO or sticking issues.

and lastly enjoy your LUXE you made a good choice.

I live in California, so 50-70 degree weather is what I will be playing in for now. And not to sound completely uneducated.. What does FSDO stand for? Also, I have read about Pooty's feather touch manifold, but do all luxes come with a stock feather touch screw? Thank you for your response, anything helps

FSDO= first shot drop off, secondly pooty sells a modified manifold and yes all luxes come with a feather touch manifold go over to

www.zdspb.com

and do some reading over the luxe if it is your first one, while it is a 1.0 in the showing it will help.

since you are in Cali running a feather touch screw shouldnt be an issue. do some research and looking through the FAQ section that will help you out.

Did you buy used? If so you may want to get some extra o rings.

If it's a used gun I would do the below

Take the reg apart and lube it up. Looking for internal damage to the regs walls as well

Reset the board

Make sure the eyes work

Clean and relube all the powercore orings

Remove the ft screw and play with it out for the first day. Then put it back in after the first day if you want and adjust your reg pressure

That's about it

I would go one step further, and replace the power core o-rings with a brand new factory set.

Especially if there is any chance of them being aftermarket.

Since o-ring tolerances can heavily effect a spool valve type marker, its best to stick with o-rings you can trust to be the correct size, thickness etc.
