Unread postAuthor: domino » Sun Mar 27, 2011 7:44 am

thinking of making a hybrid with this as the chamber...

Also want to use one of those co2 tyre inflators for compressed air, with a decent heavy duty tyre valve.
Gunna try turning my own burst disk valve on the lathe and use thin plastic for the disks.

Never made a hybrid before and im not too sure if the whole thing will work??

Thanks

Ok, you really need to read a crap tonne more if you think a co2 tire inflator will add air. Dont use the water bottle it will blow at 3x most probobly, cant be sure because there is no pressure rating.

Not a good idea, it will likely rupture even at low mixes.

I don't know if I understood that correctly, you do realise that CO<sub>2</sub> tyre inflators provide... well, CO<sub>2</sub>?

That's not going to help with ignition ;)

Do you have a source of high pressure air for the inflater valve? It may work if you use air instead of CO2.
