How do I stop my Mayhem from spiting air?

I guess this is a question for sniper1rfa.
I've just recived my Mayhem (#578, they have not been a hot seller) and when I shoot it expells lot's of air (and oil) under the sight rail. I guess they are expelling excessive pressure. Is there a way wo fix this?

They all do that when you shoot it, it is a vent

I guess that all that vented air is what causes the inefficiencies that (regarding what people write in this forum) has plagued the Mayhem. I was wondering. Why should it had to vent air? Shouldn't lowering the pression be a more reasonable solution?
I'm thinking about putting another regulator or something. Do you have any suggestion?

Regards

PD: I also have an Osiris, what is the optimum pressure for the Inline regulator so it doesn't kicks?

Max flow!!!!!!
Oh and use the reg to tool the air on and off. Less chance of um detination.

You sir are a genius.

I've been laughing for the past 5 minutes but I don't quite know why yet

I do admit that I didn't understood how the Mayhem worked when I made this question. I was thinking of the excess pressure valve of the Nova. All the information from the Nova I have is from internet articles. And I had read that it had a valve to expunge the extra pressure from the the CO2 when the regulator didn't worked prefectly. I thought the Mayhem had the same feature.
Now I think I understand the nature of the Mayhem spool much better. The fact that the Mayhem and Nova are complete different beasts was of no help, though.
I do have to admit, that the way the spool works in the Mayhem is noisy. And trying to solve it rendered the marker unoperable. 100% my fault (I stripped the to thread of the back body). But I do think that the robustness of the body should have been improved somewhat.
As I've already stated in other thread, in two monthes or so, I hope to have an upgraded Mayhem to bury this bad impression I've left here.
