i'l join the competition when i get some copper for an over under :P
that will be when hybrid chamber shows up and i go shopping parts for the meter on it.
if i find small enougt pipe i make a meter for the mini to :D

is it just the length that counts or diameter also?

i just got an ideà: if i find small enough pipe for a meter you can expect the smallest hybrid on this site :)

lol I'm attempting to make an under over right now. And the funny thing is I don't have glue or tape to make it. Just string. :lol: I have to find tape. It's too hard with just string... :x

Don't trust your fellow spudders? I for one trust that every mini here works.

BTW Eureka. My over under is complete!

ATTENTION EVERYONE!!!

i have just successfully made 2 shots with my newly completed mini.

it is 1.875" long, so i obtain the record for smallest combustion.

I am pretty tired so ill post the pics tomorrow afternoon around 4:30 pm (central)

I even took video so its undeniably the smallest functional combustion on the site.

night,
sthorne
