Look at the wiki and search for combustions and it ahs like al the upgrades that are possible and gives you enough information to put them together... and frankrede jw but why would you put a burst disk on a regular combustion? I thought you just put those on hybrids so that they would hold pressure...?

the burst disk hold the pressure of the expanding gases when burned then bursts when it reaches its strength... therefore more pressure is forced at the potato!

Look for propane meters on the how to section and for ignition get a stun gun. If its possible to make it all out of pvc then do that.

Nice job Professor^ lol, any ways make a auto vent system, clear chamber, 555 timer circit for your fan, a LED fan. Breech loadable, or just a ram-rod holder a 4 stage arming circit. Dual spark strips. I have more I have to go.

explain this auto vent system to me i dont quite understand... but thanks for all this advice everyone... i think i may put a bipod on it next so i get the perfect angle... then im going to make covered rings that insert into the female adapter for burst disks... that will make them easier to install eachtime.... and get lazer sighting... even though ill prolly never use it lol and eventually ill get a propane system, spark strips, and a tazer egnition or something like that! and breach loading but i havent quite figured it out yet!?

just put a 80mm computer fan in your chamber and hook it up to a control box and some batteries and you can vent without blowing intoyour chamber the fan does it for you 8)

Or you could take a 1/4 ball valve and a 1/4 quick connect and put it in your chamber then after your done hook up the air and there you go. Or if you dont have a compressor use a shrader valve in stead.
