Note: i have a systema magnum motor in my gun and a systema m120 spring witch shoot 398-400 fps stable.
So true, ppl just get on the bandwagon about things that they haven't tried (in many cases not all) every AK Gearbox I've owned, Cyma, Dboys and JG has never been shimmed, run completely stock with regular 8.4 or 9.6 batteries and I've NEVER EVER EVER had any of them break on me,
people love to jump in and be like "Oh you should get your gun shimmed right out of the box" which is just retarded IMO and not necessary at all (at least on v3 boxes)

WRONG, as for increased battery power increasing FPS, wtf is that shit, so the extra voltage magically inscreases the tension on the AEG spring, transforming it from a SP110 to SP150?
