Who's the strongest?

Unread postAuthor: elad311 » Tue Oct 07, 2008 8:56 am

I was just wondering...
What kind of spud gun is stronger:

The first one in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpAJOPzKK-M

OR the one in this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihkPHZLRobI

Because, the most of the people are building cannons like those
in the second vid, but some people are building cannons like
the first one in the first vid.

Who's the strongest?

well they are both combustions and the first one the guy shoots a couple different ones so im not to sure what exactly you are looking for. i would say to just make the one in the first video of the sholder fired one as he says. its easy enough and perfect for a first cannon.

I wouldn't put a dimes worth of difference between them power wise. Both had about the same barrel length and roughly the same chamber size. Both are spray and prays. The second one has a little better spark placement.

I like the second design better, better parts usage.

First ones just a clone of Jeremy Clarksons inventions that changed the world series where he's going on about guns and makes a spudgun - or at least points at some parts and picks up and uses a spudgun that the crew made...

Ah here it is...

As for which is more powerful... why care? As far as plain combustions go size is what matters and between those two there isn't that much.

The first one is clearly made to be a total rip-off of Jeremy Clarkson's "Inventions that changed the world"... :roll:

Indeed - bit slow on the trigger there though, Hotwired nailed it several minutes before ;)

As to the video, it's also a shameless demonstration of grossly irresponsible spudgun use, firing at random in an urban area and deliberately targetting traffic.

No, not slow on the trigger, the lock time was ridiculous. :P

I'd say the guy who can bench press the most is the strongest.

as others have said, bigger chamber and barrel makes bigger power with combustions. If you truly want more power, research pneumatic cannons.
