I've heard mixed ideas about high-speed gears, so i just want your opinions on this setup for my steyr aug.

Prometheus 6mm bearing bushings
Systema New Bore up cylinder set
All helical full set High speed gears
PDI 140%
Systema tappet plate
Systema bearing spring guide
Systema high speed motor

I'd be running this with a 9.6v 1700maH battery
THNX for your help

There are two very recent topics in reguards to high speed gears. I suggest you check them out.

Thnx: 4 letters.
Thanks: 6 letters.

I hope you made good use of the time you managed to save by shaving off those two keystrokes.

I estimate your gun will last about 10 hicaps before eating the gears. Not to mention I would not combine a boreup kit with that small of spring. You will loose compression and velocity. Bearing bushings are not worth the money in my opinion.

:eek: So if i ditched the high speed gears, put in a pdi 170, should i use standard ratio or torque gears?

Standard ratio flat gears will do you fine.

To tell you the truth I wouldnt touch the stock gears till something happens to them. I have guns that are 2 years old and still running with stock gears in them. If you want more speed use a higher voltage battery. If that is not a possibility use a torque up or super torque up motor. They turn the spring much more efficiently than the highspeed motors so it saves battery power.

Make sure you consider all the other stuff too. You will go through bbs much much faster. My M4 will empty a Hicap in about 10 sec. You also have to consider feeding reliability. Too much speed and you will have a hard time getting the gun to feed reliabily

well, if you had 200 bux, what would you throw into the internals obisdian?

I would buy spring, bushings, piston head, and a TN tightbore barrel if your feeling froggy. I would take the rest of the money and do something more important:

- Buy a good pair of boots
- Buy a good set of googles
- Buy a good charger
- get more batteries, magazines, accessories
