Good technical examples & articles


From Spud Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is to be filled with the cannons generally considered good technical examples on the forums, or those that people just tend to like. And the articles that are worth your reading time.

Obviously this page is under construction, somewhat subjective, and most definitely incomplete, but it's here to help a newbie get themselves well aligned with what spudding actually can be.

VERY IMPORTANT RULE

Most of these topics are fairly old. Please do not post in any topic that you are linked to from this page unless you have a VERY important technical question that is not answered anywhere in the thread.

Asking for plans in any one of these threads will cause you to become prematurely bald. If you are already bald, you don't want to know what becoming bald again after you are already bald does to you.

ADDING TO THIS PAGE

  • Please put cannons in the right category, and alphabetically by user. (This is to prevent any "This cannon is better, so it should be higher up" edit wars.) Articles have no particular order of preference, but try and add them to the right category.
  • Avoid adding a really recent cannon unless it's a very good example.
  • Don't add your own cannons, because that's just big-headed. I know I (Ragnarok) did it, but I'm a self confessed hypocrite.

Hybrid

  • BACH, by Daccel. Although not finished, this is one of the most viable methods to speed up hybrid operation.]
  • HPSCL, by DR. Often known as the Gen-II tank, an early example (reposted here) of developments in hybrid fuelling.
  • Piston Hybrid, by Fnord. A demonstration of an alternate hybrid valve.
  • FEAR, by Killjoy. Just a big ass hybrid. Former holder of the spudgun velocity record.
  • HyGaC20, by Larda. Current holder of spudgun velocity, and preignition mix pressure records. Also nice to look at.
  • The Cobra Venom, by Moonbogg. A topic that documents the production of a high quality machined hybrid.
