I'd like to see someone do some catastrophic failure testing of pvc chambers wrapped in different things like duct tape/.25" rope/sprayon bedliner/fiberglass-resin/carbonfiber-resin/spiderwire-resin/etc...

Be interesting to see how different things effect schrapnel dispersion and or bursting strength....

I'm surprisede I haven't seen anyone use steelbraid to sleeve their cannons... like this: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EAR-920013ERL/

the one linked will fit between 1.5" up to 3"....

If I had a hispeed camera I'd build a few chambers and turn loose the co2 on them for the sake of science( remotely mind you), use a check valve on a guage to measure actual failure pressure... And the hispeesd camera would show the fail characteristics...

I've got Lots of sizes of pvc leftover from differant projects, spend a few dollars on fittings... Might be worth doing even without the camera

Yeah, it's disappointing. I'm almost expecting to hear of an accident amongst the next fortnight's news because of this.

Did anyone see if they were successful in lifting a car with duct tape?

They were. Eventually, it gave way, with the tape tearing rather than the adhesive failing.
