--If you don't believe me you can wikipedia "Venturi effect",
Most people are only moding the barrel and spring!!!!!
Step 1: The Restrictor
--Start with cutting out the center. Then work you way outwards so that the dart will fit but have slight resistance.
If your going to use a custom barrel the size will vary.
Step 2: Making the Venturi
and blocked in the center.....
Simply cut through the center and try to keep the hole the same size as the front piece. Everyone does this so it's no secret>
I prefer to use Quick Steel to fill the holes of the back piece because it cures fast and it's easy to sand or Dremel when needed.
Step 3: How the Venturi Effect Looks
Step 4: What It Should Look Like
Step 5: Another Look
Step 6: Taking Out the Spring
--First your going to have to pre-loosen the little tabs on the inside. There's three of them that need to be pry'd back. It's going to smash the orange tip inwards a bit but that's what needs to be done. See Picture.
Here's the link to the Video:
Step 7: Stock Spring Lenght
--Here's a trick!
1. Pull the spring outwards enough to measure 3.25 inches.
( any more than that and you risk hurting the spring rate )
2. Leave the spring alone for about five minutes or so because youv'e just introduced heat the the spring when pulled.
ohh and don't pull back and forth just try to do it in one pass.
3. Recompress to spring with your hands till it's fully compressed down and won't go any further. HOLD for a a minute or 2.
Then release slowly and the spring should settle between 2.75 to 2.90 inches.
Step 8: New Spring Lenght
It measures at 2.75 inches with no problems.
Remember I don't recomend pulling the spring out to much because there's only so much the spring can be adjusted to.
Step 9: Adding JOLT to the Firestrike
--The tension will be so tight that you have to make sure that the screws are tight when you put everything back together.
My suction cup dart ranges are considerably farther now!!
Elite darts go Twice as far!!
And Whistler darts are amazing!!
Step 10: The Rod
The one shown still holds like stock so I did'nt have to do any of that.
