Upgrades?

Unread postAuthor: SpudChucker24 » Sun Feb 10, 2008 8:49 pm

Ive just built my first cannon and i think i did a alright job with it.

I have to admit it does get a little boring shooting it though because its just to simple. Right now im working on a mount for it like miskaman did.

But is there anything else i could do to make this thing fun to shoot for day long periods. Or if i could get more power out of it?

just your typical things like chamber fan, propane meter, high voltage ignition and nekkid chick stickers would make it a lot more fun. :wink:

What does a chamber fan actually do? And wouldnt the implosion in the chamber affect the fan?

It can vent the chamber when done firing, and can can help with power(said to be a 20% increase... :shock: ) it wouldn't be an implosion though, more like explosion...i think :?

A chamber fan mixs the fuel and can increase performance up to 30%
And what do you mean by implosion of the chamber if you mean combustion it can but it takes a while for any affects to show.
Im loving your avatar :lol:

Ok im guessing i could find something in how to's about the fan. Thanks about the avatar. I just pick it out about a hour ago :wav:

By the way isnt a implosion inside something and a explosion is the entire thing blowing up? im just guessing so if someone knows please tell. haha

Not really, all a combustion cannon is is a container for an explosion. It's still an explosion, just inside something.

Implosion is a process in which objects are destroyed by collapsing in on themselves. The opposite of explosion, implosion concentrates matter and energy. An example of implosion is a submarine being crushed from the outside by the hydrostatic pressure of the surrounding water.

It will just be more reliable to ignite on the first click to my experience but I have heard it makes the combustion happen faster making higher range and velocity.

You could add a multi spark system and that will increase the burn rate of the fuel....in turn creating a faster explosion
