Eblade not cycling with higher rates of fire

I built an E1 recently and it's not able to keep up with really anything faster than single shots. When you try to shoot faster it seems like the ram isn't able to keep up and the back block doesn't get pushed all the way back as if the gun can't keep up. I have recorded a video of what it's doing. I'm not sure if this is due to the sear slipping or not as I'm very new to eblades but not entirely inexperienced with autocockers as my main gun is a mech 2K4 prostock.

I've noticed that there is the sound of what I believe is something sealing up but not a leak somewhere in the front pneumatics, it is audible in the video.

Anyone have any ideas on what could be going on here? The Empire ram I'm using is brand new so I'd hope it wasn't defective out of the box.

Sounds like a shoot down problem. Set the board to factory fast to eliminate it as a source of problems, then check the inline and LPR outputs.
Might help:

A gauge under the front block is great for diagnosing shoot down. Its great for a lot of things actually, but if you see the needle dropping, its an inline reg issue.

Good luck!
