supha valve vs piston

Unread postAuthor: Mini Khan » Wed Apr 12, 2006 2:44 pm

I have a piston valve and I am convinced that a supha valved from spud tech cant be any more powerful because a piston valve allows as much airflow as the barll diamiter is, so how can a supha valve be better that a piston valve?

I seen a diagram of the supah valve that PCGUY posted and the only real differance that i can see is the supah has a lot more solid construction other then just glueing blocks to catch the piston. I can't see where that makes it any faster. Just like fishing lures, made to catch the fishermen!

NOTE: The diagram post was a sugested design if i'm not mistakeing, correct me if i'm wrong???

all i know is that it's very very well made, and the supah is a chamber sealing valve so it opens faster

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought people did tests on SGTC and found barrel sealing valves to be slightly faster... :?:

when you think about it... the chamber sealing valve *should* open faster, because of the more area on the sealing face means more force and less pressure difference between the chamber and pilot it needs to open.

talon plz link me

Yeah, I thought that same thing too... but when I was doing some research I came across this... kinda hard to find because it's in the archives but it's by clide, so you know it's good stuff :)
